Irony is a bitch. Keep that in mind as this story unfolds. Cobalt frontman Charlie Fell suffered a freak accident onstage at the last show of their tour in Poland. A fan reached out to hug him as the show ended, and Charlie, well, fell. Landing on his left foot, it was shattered in multiple places, and he was rushed to a hospital where he’s required two reconstructive surgeries. As a result of the accident happening in Poland, it wasn’t covered by insurance, so he’s on the hook to pay that. As a reaction, he’s started a crowdfunding campaign. Here’s what he says of it:
As some of you know in suffered a terrible foot injury in Poland while I was on tour. The injury was substantial enough to require 2 reconstructive surgeries and pull me off my feet for an entire season. Since it happened in Poland it wasnt covered by insurance. We had to cancel the summer tour and I haven’t been able to work the entire summer so I have had no means of income for months. Since I have been un able to work in haven’t been able to get the proper PT to rehab my foot. Nobody ever wants to post these but this just is not something I will ever be able to cover with out some help. Thanks for reading this and anything will help out.
