The Arctic Monkeys' new bassist, Nick O'Malley, has broken his hand just days after joining the band on tour.
The new bassist of music group Arctic Monkeys broke his hand. Fortunately, Nick O'Malley, who is set to replace Andy Nicholson who pulled out of the US tour due to exhaustion, will still play with the band in America.
Explaining on what makes O'Malley broke his hand, fellow The Dodgems bandmate Phil Goodwin said: "As we walking home form the pub, our roadie grabbed [O'Malley] and pulled him over our neighbor's wall. It's quite high and he landed on his right hand. It is his plectrum hand and he has a pot on it - but he says he can still hold a plectrum."
