Former AC/DC Bassist Hospitalized Following Car Accident

Former AC/DC bassist Mark Evans was hospitalized earlier this week after a taxi he was being driven in was rear-ended, according to Australia's Undercover News.

Evans was on his way to perform at the Bridge Hotel at Rozelle in Sydney with Dave Tice (ex-BUFFALO) early Tuesday evening (April 20) when the accident occurred. He was taken to hospital and treated for neck injures following the crash.

A self-described "blues" band, Tice and Evans have had a residency at The Bridge for six years now and plan on capturing the moment with a live DVD due to be filmed in coming weeks.

Mark expects to be back working for the shows on May 4 and 11 when the DVD is planned to be filmed. The Tuesday night gigs are in addition to their usual Thursday night shows.

Evans — who spent time in the Australian band HEAVEN in the mid-'80s — played on AC/DC's "High Voltage", "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap", "TNT", and "Let There Be Rock" albums, which have sold a combined 11 million copies in the U.S.
