(antiMusic) A member of Supergrass fell out of a window while sleepwalking and broke his back and heal. He is expected to recover but it will take time causing the band to cancel their planned homecoming show.

Mick Quinn was staying in a villa in the south of France and sleepwalked out of a ground floor window. The bass player and vocalist broke two vertebrae and smashed his heel according to the BBC.

He was taken to spinal unit in Toulouse and a specialist operated to repair the broken vertebrae and heal. While he is expected to make a full recovery from the injuries, the recovery will take several months. Luckily the band only has one gig scheduled in near future.

That show, a one-off homecoming performance at the Oxford Carling Academy was scheduled to take place on September 23rd will now be postponed. The accident occurred while the band was taking a break following the completion of their sixth album, due out sometime next year.

"We hope the crazy fool gets back on his feet as soon as possible," said frontman Gaz Coombes "I'm sure he'll make a full recovery; he's a tough cookie."
