Rocker GILBY CLARKE has announced his first show since breaking bones in his left ankle and feet in a hit-and-run accident in January (10).
The former Guns N' Roses guitarist was knocked off his motorcycle in Sherman Oaks, California on 10 January (10) and suffered three broken bones in his left foot and ankle and a broken bone in his right foot.
He underwent surgery in February (10) and a rod, plate and "lots of screws" were fixed into his shattered legs - and he has been recovering ever since.
He'll be back onstage on 28 May (10) when he performs at the Brixton in Redondo Beach, California.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
