letlive. Frontman Jason Butler Tears Ligaments In His Knee, Performs At ‘Download Festival’ With Crutches


letlive. frontman/professional daredevil Jason Butler took to the stage at this years ‘Download Festival‘ tonight on crutches thanks to two torn ligaments in his knee. He told Metal Hammer that he sustained the injury at a recent show:

“The stage was really wet – because of me – and I jumped off of something with something in my hand. It prevented me from putting my hands down. When I slipped coming down, my legs went the opposite way. It popped something.

I tore two ligaments in my knee. I think it’s alright, but I’ve got to be really, really careful.

It was years in the making – I’ve been being an asshole for quite some time.”

The injury didn’t keep Butler entirely grounded though, as the below picture of him climbing the scaffolding at today’s performance taken by Metal Hammer shows:
