Former Replacements singer Paul Westerberg may be out of action for the next year following a bizarre accident where he stabbed himself in the left hand with a screwdriver.
Westerberg was scrapping wax from a candle about a week ago when the accident occurred. The screwdriver slipped and pierced his left hand, ripping the cartilage and hurting the musician quite severely.
"He's in a cast. He's seen a couple of doctors who say he won't be able to play guitar for a year" his friend Jim Walsh posted in a blog.
Nothing to add, just passing it along.
