Beady Eye - Injured Gem Archer Beady Eyeing November Return To Stage

Beady Eye rocker Gem Archer is preparing to return to the stage in November (13), three months after breaking his leg and suffering severe head trauma in separate accidents.

The guitarist has been out of action since early August (13), when he reportedly fell down a flight of stairs and fractured his skull, forcing Liam Gallagher's band to cancel a string of shows.

His health took another knock last month (Sep13) after he was involved in a freak accident and underwent surgery to have a metal pin inserted in his leg, but Archer has reached out to fans online to assure them he is "on the mend".

A statement issued on Thursday (03Oct13) reads: "Hi all. Gem here saying a big thank you from the bottom of my being, to everyone for their kind words, wishes, messages and patience over the past weeks.

"I am on the mend, not gone round the bend and treading carefully whilst taking each day as a giant leap forward. I still consider myself lucky, who knows why things happen, but they do and it all could have been much worse but it wasn't. That was then and as of now, I can't wait to stand with a guitar in my hand alongside the rest of the boys, on a stage in front of some of you from November onwards.

"'You can't change the wind, but you can change how you walk into it' as an old friend said to me once. Here's to next time and knowing a little more of how to do the walk! Bring it on. Thanks again. Peace, love, luck and respect. Gem Archer."

Beady Eye are due to kick off a tour or Ireland and the U.K. from 7 November (13).
