Staind Lewis in plane drama

Staind frontman Aaron Lewis was forced to cancel a solo show after his plane skidded off a runway.

He was a passenger in the private jet on Saturday evening, aiming to fly from Texas to Oklahoma, when the incident took place.

An official statement describes the Cessna Citation V as having been “disabled” and “prohibiting the safe continuation of the flight.”

Lewis last night posted a picture of the scene and said: “I’m so glad that we are safe. However, I am really sorry that the fans in Tulsa were disappointed with me not making last night’s show. I promise I’ll be back to Tulsa soon.”

He’s been concentrating on his solo career for most of 2014, with Staind taking a back seat for the time being. Their last album was 2011’s self-titled seventh release.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
