Danny McCormack To Play Live Shows After Leg Amputation

The Main Grains

(Classic Rock) The Main Grains frontman Danny McCormack will perform the band's upcoming support dates with The Wildhearts sitting down after having his leg amputated.

The former Wildhearts bassist is recovering from surgery to amputate his leg below the knee as a result of complications from an aneurysm that he suffered last year. And while he is some way away from being fitted with a prosthetic leg, McCormack is determined he will be ready for the shows in December.

He tells TeamRock: "I will have to play these shows sitting down, but I will play them. We are rehearsing right now and sounding good. It will probably be four to six months before I'm walking again with a prosthetic leg, but it's going well and I can't wait to play live again."

McCormack is currently living in a hostel in Newcastle as he had to move out of his second floor flat. But he will get the keys to a new, ground floor apartment this week and will finally be reunited with his dog Shadow, who he hasn't seen for months as he's spent so much time in hospital."
