The bassist is currently recovering from falling off his bike last week. According to NME, McConnell broke his ribs and injured his spine, shoulder blade and knee. It is not yet clear what caused the accident.
The band's manager, Adrian Hunter, took to an online forum to relay a message from McConnell: "I have surgery on my spine today and the next day on my knee. Plates, rods and screws going in both spine and knee. They ain't told me what they plan for my shoulder blade and broken ribs yet."
Hunter also reports that McConnell, who has also played in Doherty's solo backing band and the groups Mongrel and Helsinki, is feeling "comfortable but if a little pained."
Get well soon, Drew.
