The Enemy's Hopkins Injured
THE ENEMY's guitarist ANDY HOPKINS has put the band's performance at this weekend's (22-23Aug09) V Festival in England in jeopardy after injuring himself in a drinking game.
The musician was in Hertfordshire, England on Wednesday (19Aug09) to take part in a celebrity golf tournament, which got out of hand when the group began playing a drinking game after the sun had gone down.
The rocker lost his balance while taking his turn putting on the wet grass in the dark, and injured himself when he slipped and smashed his heel.
The Brit was admitted to a hospital and is now walking around on crutches, sparking fears he may not appear at the outdoor music event.
Hopkins is the latest in a long line of musicians who have recently injured themselves - rockers Aerosmith have been forced to cancel summer (09) dates after singer Steven Tyler smashed his collarbone in a stage fall, rapper Drake had to pull out of mentor Lil Wayne's tour after hurting his knee early last month (Jul09) and country singer Billy Currington and his bassist Alex Stevens were injured and hospitalised after a stage collapsed at a festival in Canada at the beginning of August (09).
