Del The Funky Homosapien Seriously Injured After Fall At Concert (Video)
Last night (July 8), the Gorillaz cut their Roskilde Festival appearance in Denmark short following an injury to longtime collaborator Del The Funky Homosapien. Del, who is a Rap veteran of nearly 30 years, fell off of the stage, halting the performance of the band’s breakout 2001 single, “Clint Eastwood.”
The Hieroglyphics co-founder was rushed to the hospital, and is in stable condition, according to a social media update from the artist:
The event was captured on video, where viewers can see the No Need For Alarm creator fall from the stage upon his entrance:
The Gorillaz, who just released their sixth album The Now Now, have worked with Del for nearly 20 years. Dan The Automator, a producer for the animated band, partnered with D-E-L and Kid Koala in Deltron 3030. He appeared on two songs on their self-titled debut. The Oakland, California MC/producer has toured with the collective for years.
Earlier this year, Del partnered with Zion I co-founder Amp Live for Gate 13, available for full stream:
