Wilson: 'Accident Has Taught Me A Lesson'
Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson insists his recent car accident taught him a vital lesson - never leave a gig early. The rocker had sneaked out of a Hard-Fi concert in Leeds, England, to catch his favourite film Phone Booth on TV last month (MAY06). He was hit by a car on a pedestrian crossing while walking home. Despite escaping serious injury, Wilson admits the experience has made him reassess his priorities, insisting he'll never swap a concert finale for TV again. He says, "It will teach me to leave Hard-Fi early. I wanted to get home to watch Phone Booth which was on at 10pm. "I was crossing the road, it was a green man. I walked past one car that had stopped and when I got half way across a car came out of nowhere. "You know how they say you see it coming in really slow motion, well it did. I jumped in the air and it clipped my shins and flipped me over and I hit the windscreen." Wilson suffered a broken toe and fingers in the accident, as well as multiple minor cuts and bruises.
