(Classic Rock) Baroness guitarist John Baizley has relived the moments of terror when the band's tour bus left the road and plummeted off a viaduct in torrential rain.

The US band were part-way through a tour of England in August when the accident took place. Baizley was thrown through the bus windscreen, breaking an arm and a leg, and will remain in a wheelchair for weeks to come. He was the last member of the band to leave hospital and return home.

He says: "Our bus went entirely out of control. The brakes failed completely. We had no choice other than hitting a guardrail going about 50mph. We went fully airborne and fell more than 30 feet."
