Jesse James Dupree is recuperating at home following a motorcycle accident on Route 411 by the Georgia / Alabama state line. Dupree was struck by an automobile, suffering a broken left ankle and foot, fractured right arm, and significant bruising to his lower back, alongside a severe case of road rash. The JACKYL frontman and co-star of "Full Throttle Saloon" on Tru-TV is expected to make a full recovery.
Michael Ballard's "Full Throttle Saloon" is the "World's Largest Biker Bar," a 30-acre enormous indoor/outdoor bar with several large stages, a burn-out pit, a tattoo parlor, zip lines, a wrestling ring, restaurants, dozens of stores, hundreds of cabins for rent and parking for thousands of bikes. It opens for two weeks annually around the Sturgis rally, and the indelible color of the sights and sounds of Sturgis are documented and aired on Tru-TV. Currently seen in 91 million U.S. households, the 17-year-old network features high-stakes, action-packed originals that give viewers access to places and situations they can't normally experience. The show will return for a third season this November.
Formed in 1990, JACKYL has enjoyed a career stretching two decades, bringing a hybrid of Southern metal to millions. From the band's debut in 1992 via Geffen Records, through today, they are notorious as one of the hardest-working bands in rock. JACKYL holds two Guiness world records, one for staging 100 shows in 50 days, and another for performing 21 concerts in a 24-hour period. Jesse James Dupree and partner Michael Ballard also brew Jessie James Dupree's America's Outlaw Beer.
