Rocker Rob Thomas is recovering after accidentally slicing off the tip of his finger.

The Matchbox Twenty frontman shared the news of his Tuesday (30Dec14) morning mishap with fans on by posting an image of his left hand with his middle finger wrapped in a bloody bandage.

Explaining how the incident happened, he wrote, "Sliced off a bit of my finger this morning making breakfast."

He later updated fans by showing off his injured digit as he awaited medical treatment at his local hospital.

In the accompanying caption, he added, "At the hospital now. There's supposed to be more finger there."

However, Thomas appears to be laughing through the pain - he's named his "song of the day" as Fingertips by Stevie Wonder.

The hospital trip was the singer's second visit in two days - he had to accompany his cousin to the emergency room after having his nose bitten by a dog on Sunday (28Dec14).
