Vocalist Russ Graham of Canadian rockers KILLER DWARFS has been released from hospital and is recuperating with the rest of the band in Indiana after they were involved in a serious crash following their performance at the Rocklahoma festival this past weekend. The accident took place just before 2:00 Monday afternoon (May 26) near a construction zone along interstate 70 in Indiana when the band’s pickup truck — driven by KILLER DWARFS bassist Johnny Fenton — pulling a box trailer failed to slow or stop and hit a vehicle and another pickup truck. The second truck then hit a SUV. Graham was airlifted to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis for head injuries while Fenton, drummer Darrell Millar and guitarist Gerry Finn suffered only minor cuts and bruises.
Says KILLER DWARFS: “We are working on getting the band and their gear back home safe to Canada to reunite them with their loving friends and families.
“As of now, there are no show cancellations and the June 7th Hard Rock Café Toronto Trike iduction and show will still take place.”
KILLER DWARFS was formed in Toronto in 1981 and continues to rock, showing no signs of slowing down. From its first single, the anthem “Keep The Spirit Alive”, to its 2013 album “STaRT @ oNe”, the band’s timeline includes extensive MTV airplay, recording for major labels, racking up a few Juno nominations and playing some of the largest venues throughout the world.
