Weezer front man still hospitalized, but feeling better

Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo is on the road to recovery.

The singer remains hospitalized after a tour bus crash over the weekend, but is up and walking, according to the band’s official website.

“Yesterday Rivers finally made it onto his feet for the first time since the crash, going on two hospital hallway walks with the aid of a walker,” the band’s webmaster Karl Koch wrote on the website.

“Meanwhile the docs say his insides are continuing to improve, but they have told him that while he will likely be released in the next few days, he ain’t getting on a plane anytime soon…too risky to his lung."

Cuomo broke three ribs in the Sunday morning bus crash, and also suffered a small cut on his spleen as well as a small puncture in one lung. The bus, carrying Cuomo, his family, their nanny and his assistant Sarah Kim, hit a patch of black ice outside Albany and careened off the highway.

The band’s website, which has been diligently updated daily, says that Kim – the only other passenger injured in the crash- also continues to improve.

Kim fractured two ribs and sustained back injuries. She left the hospital to return to Los Angeles with the band and is expected to recover in about a month.

    I would like to read more soon. BTW, rather nice design you have here, but don’t you think design should be changed from time to time?

    Glad to see they'll be fine, especially the baby in the crib! Unfortunately I missed my chance to see Weezer live at the Patriot Center yesterday but at least there will be another day. Kudos to the bus driver for keeping it upright, things could have been so much worse. I hope someone has brought Rivers a selection of snuggies to wear while in recovery.
