Gavin Degraw - Degraw's Brother: 'Gavin Was Sober Before Attack'

Gavin Degraw's brother has dismissed reports suggesting the singer/songwriter was drunk when he was brutally assaulted in New York on Monday morning (08Aug11).
The Chariot hitmaker was hospitalised with a concussion and a broken nose after he was attacked by three men following a night out with friends at The National, a bar in Manhattan's Lower East Side that he co-owns with his brother Joey.
Initial reports suggested DeGraw was intoxicated when the altercation occurred, and the star himself fuelled the claims when he admitted he remembered little about the incident.
In a post on Twitter.com, he wrote, "I don't remember much. I only know I can recover from here."
But Joey DeGraw has spoken out to clear up the rumours, insisting his famous sibling "had nothing but cranberry juice to drink" when he met up with his pals, according to the New York Post.
DeGraw was discharged from New York University Hospital on Tuesday afternoon (09Aug11) after undergoing surgery on his nose. He had been transferred to the university facility from Bellevue Hospital, where he was taken by ambulance after the attack.
