PAPA GEORGE FRACTURES WRIST
17th May 2005
Papa George tunes up backstage at the 2005 Festival - click to Enlarge
Papa George came to the Island last weekend via Paris. Whilst in the French capital George decided on a game of football with some local lads under the Eiffel Tower. Not a good plan George! He took a fall and badly grazed both of his hands.
Whilst performing at last weekend's Big Wheel Blues Festival George was in some real pain and although he kept it to himself at the time he decided that he would have to get it checked out. An X-Ray has revealed a fracture in the left wrist which although very common amongst motorcycle racers is less usually seen in guitar players. He is now in plaster facing the prospect of having to cancel 6 weeks of gigs. A very expensive break and very expensive kickabout.
Get well soon George.
