Matt Helders of Arctic Monkeys Taking Hiatus After 'Freak Accident'


The rocker has to take a break from his drumming after he broke his arm, sharing 'I've got a metal plate in my left arm now and a cool scar, I'm like the bionic drummer.'

Arctic Monkeys rocker Matt Helders is on hiatus from playing drums - he broke his arm during a workout in a boxing ring. The British musician was sparring with a pal at a gym when he suffered a painful crack in his left arm.

Surgeons inserted a metal plate to help the bone set and Helders is hoping his new "bionic" limb improves his playing when he is finally well enough to climb back behind his kit. He tells rock magazine NME, "I went to hospital this morning to have my last X-ray and it's healing."

"I was panicking a bit but in a way it was perfect timing because we've got nothing on at the minute. I've got a metal plate in my left arm now and a cool scar, I'm like the bionic drummer. I should be able to play a bit better now. I was sparring and it went wrong, just a freak accident really."
