The Gaslamp Killer is recovering from a near-death experience after flipping his scooter last week (July 9). The LA-based producer and DJ was riding home from a friend’s house when he flipped his bike. He suffered serious internal injuries, and doctors were forced to remove his spleen. GLK told LA Weekly he lay in hospital thinking he was going to die. “I looked at [my friend] and said, ‘Tell my parents I love them.'”
Without a spleen, the DJ won’t be able to drink or do drugs ever again. He’ll be out of action for the rest of the summer, cancelling shows throughout Europe and the US. But he’s taking the break as a chance to rest up and channel his energy into a new record.
“It’s time for me to go back inside my soul and see what comes out,” he said.
Speedy recovery, GLK.
