Gavin Degraw - Gavin Degraw Stable After Savage Attack

Gavin Degraw, the American pop singer who has spent the summer opening for Maroon 5, was savagely beaten by a "pack of thugs" in New York on Monday (8th August 2011). DeGraw was rushed to hospital following the attack but is now said to be in a stable condition, reports the New York Post.
The singer had been drinking in the city's Lower East Side with friends when he was set upon by the gang - suffering a broken nose and cuts on his face. He was subsequently hit by a taxi as he attempted to stumble away from the scene on 6th Street and 1st Avenue. Sources say the perpetrators then fled as the dazed singer was admitted to Bellevue Hospital where he remains. DeGraw, best known for his hit track 'Chariot', hails from upstate South Fallsburg but has an apartment in Manhattan. He and his brother also own the 'National Underground' bar on East Houston Street in the city. According to sources, the incident appears to have been an unprovoked attack and was not a robbery.
Gavin's representative had since told US Weekly the singer is "currently under observation" in hospital but that "no additional information" is being provided.
