all this changed in an instant on thursday afternoon, 31st march, at 3:40pm, in the queensbridge road in east london. pepe was hit by a police van and knocked off his bike. he was rushed to hospital where he's been in intensive care since.
he has suffered serious injuries to his back and face but while he's been put into an induced coma, all the indications are that he'll be all right and be able to make a full recovery. while briefly gaining some consciousness 24 hours after the accident, he was able to respond to some questions from a nurse by moving his eye and hand. he was scheduled to have his back operated on yesterday, monday 4th april, though this has been postponed 'for technical reasons' by a day.
what lies ahead after that will be a long road of recovery for pepe, but we are all hopeful that he will be back with us, the wonderful artist and friend that we know, sharing with us his music and we send him love and good vibes every inch of the way.
