Here’s a story I hate to write. Matt “Scootch” Appelby, bass player for Houston’s alt-country/punk act The Grizzly Band was traveling with a group of friends when he had to pull over to assist one of the group members with some car troubles. He had parked on the shoulder with his flashers on when a car veered off the highway and struck him.

He was he was medevaced to a hospital in Alexandria Louisiana where they had to make the decision to amputate his left leg just above the knee. Matt is in positive spirits at the moment and has a large group of friends and family support with him in this difficult time.

Friends describe Matt as having “such a big heart [he] would give the shirt right off of his back for anyone.”
