Tim Farriss facing a year-long recovery. Known as a founding member and lead guitarist of the disbanded rock band INXS needs to because of a horrific boating accident where he almost lost his finger and he will find if in fact he can pick and play the guitar again. Back in January, in Sydney, Australia he was admitted to a hospital,
after severing a digit on his left hand in the accident with an anchor winch, and medics managed to reattach it during a delicate operation.
Now he has revealed it will take at least a year before his bandaged hand is fully recovered from the surgery, and he still does not know if the injury to the third finger will prevent him from playing his guitar.
Farriss is aiding his rehabilitation with light work tending his farm on Australia’s South Coast, and he tells the Sydney Daily Telegraph, “It’s going as well as can be expected. I will be strapped for another year – the whole finger came off pretty much, so the recovery was never going to be fast.”
More on Farriss, he is from Perth, Western Australia, between the ages of eight to twelve, he was classically trained on the guitar
Farriss’ had a painful recovery which was from an operation to remove abnormal bone growths in his legs, the result of a Hereditary Multiple Exostoses.
