Gavin DeGraw is on the mend.
The singer, who was beaten following a late-night argument in New York’s East Village Aug. 8, tells VH1 he’s at home recovering from his injuries, including a broken nose, concussion and facial lacerations, and “feeling much better.”
Still, “it will take a little bit more time to be back to 100 percent,” DeGraw, 34, says.
The singer was attacked near a bar he co-owns with his brother, the National Underground, by a mysterious group of unknown assailants, according to police. Later, he was clipped by a taxi nearly a mile away before a passerby called 911 and DeGraw was taken by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital.
“I’m overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from my fans, friends, and family,” he says. “I can’t wait to get back out on tour and look forward to seeing you on the road sometime soon.”
