Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is lucky to be alive after suffering a freak accident while working out backstage last year.
The This Love singer was rushed to hospital after lacerating his chest when a workout went awry.
“It was one of the most painful things I’ve ever experienced,” he told Blender magazine. “It was really an embarrassing story, but I might as well tell it – I was working out backstage with the kind of cable pulleys that you put onto a doorstop.”
He added: “James Valentine, our guitar player, opened the door and basically this really thick rubber cable with a metal carabineer on the end of it snapped with the force of what seemed like a bullet, and hit me right in the middle of my chest. It could have killed me. It lacerated my chest right down the middle, and I had to go to the hospital. I did perform that night, though. They pumped me full of drugs, and I was so high that I actually wanted to play.”
