Pentagram rocker Bobby Liebling is recovering after suffering minor injuries during a bicycle accident on Wednesday (29Aug12).
The singer was out running errands on his bike when his front wheel hit a stick in the road, sending Liebling crashing to the ground.
The bloodied former Shades of Darkness star was taken to hospital, where he received 12 staples in his head and was treated for an elbow injury and bruised ribs.
Despite his injuries, Liebling has refused to pull out of a show in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday (01Sep12) as part of the Power Of The Riff - East festival, according to Blabbermouth.net.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
