Tom from Continents

About 3 weeks ago Tom Weaver – the guitarist with those energetic South Wales rockers ‘Continents’ (we saw them at the fabulous RedFest 2013) broke his eye socket while on tour.

He just has just given this account of the procedure that he had to endure this week “To straighten it out again..”

He said:

“They unzipped my head across the top [then] peeled the skin off my face as far as my nose. “ [See Fig 1-2]

“Then [they] screwed a metal plate into my eye socket before … stapling me back together.” [See Fig 3-4 ]

Tom’s gonna be out of action for a while.  But we wish him well.

Get better soon mate … and thanks for the in-depth description of your grotesque procedure.
