Gilby Clarke Hurt in Motorcyle Crash, Is 'Resting Comfortably'

Guitarist and former Guns n' Roses rocker Gilby Clarke is in the hospital with a broken leg after a motorcycle crash. It's not exactly clear where the accident happened, but Clarke lives around Los Angeles, California.

Fellow guitarist and friend Tracii Guns posted this message on his personal Facebook page: "Gilby got nailed on his motorcycle last night. His leg is broken in three places. It was a hit and run. I am gonna try to go see him tonight, he will be OK."

The message set off a flurry of social networking activity, including posts on various metal message boards and tweets galore. In short order, Clarke's wife posted an update to her husband's Facebook page, assuring fans the guitarist is "resting comfortably" in the hospital.

Clarke replaced Izzy Stradlin in Guns n' Roses in 1991 and left the band around 1995. He is also a producer in addition to solo performer.

Gilby Clarke: 'I Still Can't Stand Up, Because Both Legs Are Injured'

Former Guns N' Roses/Rock Star Supernova guitarist Gilby Clarke was hospitalized on Sunday (January 10) after he was the victim of a hit-and-run motorcycle accident. He is currently waiting to be transferred from Sherman Oaks Hospital to another facility, where he will undergo surgery. He says in a Twitter update, "I still can't stand up, [because] both legs are injured."

Clarke's close friend, former MTV "Headbangers Ball" host Riki Rachtman, has put out the following call for help in finding the motorist who caused the accident:

"You may have heard Gilby Clarke was involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday. The important thing you should know is it was a hit-and-run.

"WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!! Sunday around 5 p.m. Gilby was riding his bike in Sherman Oaks, California. He was riding south on Woodman and at the intersection of Moorpark some idiot turned left right in front of him. Gilby hit the passenger side of the vehicle. The driver took off.

"Here is what we know so far. [Pickup] truck light color tan perhaps silver. There was a male driver and possibly a female passenger could be Hispanic, but not sure. The truck looked fairly new and has damage on the passenger side.

"If you have ANY information, send me a direct message on Twitter until I find out the police department.

"C'mon, someone knows something. Look for that truck.

"Gilby is currently getting ready for surgery to his leg. It's a pretty gnarly break."

From Gilby's blog, January 12, 2010:
crash

yes, some asshole in his pick up truck pulled a left as i was going through an intersection on my bike. JD & I were riding back from Pomona Easyriders show when it happened. not only did this dumb ass driver pull in front of moving traffic, but he split the scene after he hit me. he doesn't know if i'm dead or what... i have 3 broken bones in my left foot & 1 broken bone in my right foot. my new joe king helmut saved my skull, but i won't be walking for awhile. there were some really wonderful people @ the scene that helped out quite a bit & i've heard from everyone i know, sending best wishes & speedy recovery. so to you, we will rock n' roll again !

Gilby's wife, Daniella Clarke, writes on her Twitter page, "My guy is out of surgery. One down one more to go."

"While Gilby can't walk, since both legs [are] broken, the idiot that hit him and left is walking around somewhere with no guilt for what he did."

Gilby Clarke Undergoes Second Surgery Following Hit-And-Run Accident

Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke is recovering at home from injuries he sustained in a hit-and-run accident on his motorcycle on January 10. He suffered three broken bones in his left foot/ankle and a broken bone in his right foot. He had his second surgery last week during which "they put in a rod, plate and lots of screws," he writes on his blog. He adds, "Everything is healing well; it's a good thing I was healthy going in. I had my check up on Friday [February 5] and they took off my cast and removed the staples. In a month I can start trying to walk. Once again, all the support from my friends has made the bad days good."
