Local drummer Miles McPherson, who currently tours with Paramore, and has previously performed with artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Bo Bice, and was formerly a member of the Nashville rock group Look What I Did, was injured Friday when a golf cart he was driving flipped and dragged him 20 feet along the ground. Aside from broken bones in his hand and face, and a leg injury, McPherson sustained severe burns from leaked battery acid across his face, shoulder, and arm. His wife and two friends, who were passengers in the cart, were ejected, and escaped relatively unharmed.
While the drummer has been released from the burn unit at Vanderbilt, doctors have been unable to determine yet if he will regain full mobility in his left hand. Though insurance will cover the bulk of medical expenses, musicians (and most Nashville residents) understand the financial impact of being out of work, even if only temporarily. To assist Miles, a father of two, friends of the family have set up a PayPal to collect donations, which can be found at this site.
