Kaiser Chief Saved By “Trademark Jump”

You may have read that KC frontman Ricky Wilson was hit by a car while crossing the street in Leeds the other day (he’ll be okay). According to the band’s website, it was Ricky’s patented stage jump that saved his life.

“He’s the luckiest man alive, because he is still alive, it sounds daft, but a ‘Ricky trademark jump’ has probably saved his life. The jump meant he was flipped over the top of the car, hitting the windscreen, rather than getting trapped under it.”

Not to make light of a hit-and-run, but … well, they just did.

Or did they? Check out Ricky in action (pic via NME):

Can’t imagine what Pete Doherty would do in the same situation. Actually, yes I can. It’s not pretty.
