Bassist Run Over By Carjacker
A brave bassist has survived to tell the tale of a carjacking where he was run over. Lou Panico plays in Socratic whose 2008 album "Spread The Rumors" was produced by Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus. He was in a guitar store car park when he spotted a car robbery taking place. Panico ran over to prevent the robbery, but despite his best efforts, the bandit ran over his leg. Doctors had to insert four pins and a rod to save it, according to Classic Rock, but doctors are expecting him to make a full recovery. It's unlucky timing for his band's tour around New York on September 15, but the bassist swears to make it anyway. I don't care if I have to be on a gurney throughout the entire set I'll be there," he told The 1st Five. Worst things have happened to us. We always persevere. His band Socratic produced their own self-titled album in 2012 following the collapse of their former label Drive Thru Records. Panico has been brave and we wish him a speedy recovery, but it could have ended really badly. If any of you see a crime, don't try to be a hero call the cops and make sure you stay safe.
