Rivers Cuomo Is ‘On the Mend’

A couple of days after his tour bus slid on black ice and fell into a ditch, Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo is in good condition in an upstate New York hospital, according to an update on the band's site.


"Rivers has had a much better day than yesterday. He went from being barely able to talk and open his eyes yesterday to partially sitting up, talking clearly, reading books and checking the Internet, plus his color and energy seemed much brighter."

Cuomo suffered a small puncture to his lung that wasn't big enough to cause it to collapse, and a small cut to his spleen that's "on the mend." His leg is also injured, but that's from rocking too hard, not the crash.
