Mudvayne singer Chad Gray feels very lucky that he didn't seriously hurt himself when he fell off stage while singing "Not Falling" during their show July 26th in Tampa, Florida.
Gray posted a message to fans on Instagram saying the fall was "brutal" and that he's grateful that "a lot of people have reached out to me personally [and] a lot of people are sending me well wishes online. I appreciate it very much."
He explained that he usually attempts to get near the crowd once during their set and that when he got one foot on the barricade, "the crowd surged forward, pushed my foot off backwards, so my foot went straight down. My left foot was still on the stage -- I hadn't stepped across yet -- and my whole body just went 'wham!' like that, right on top of the barricade...right across my sternum. I thought I was gonna [mess] my pants; it hurt so bad...
"The good news is I didn't break a rib. Otherwise this tour could be over and I would be absolutely devastated because all I wanted to do for the last two and a half years is get back out here and be with my heavy metal family around the country and hopefully soon around the world."
