Feeder-ing the flames

Coming within moments of tragedy: Feeder's crew tour bus caught fire over the weekend. Luckily, driver Colin Campbell spotted the flames and was able to get everyone awake and off the bus before it turned into an insurance write-off.

Somewhat surprisingly, though, Grant Nicholas manages to balance his praise for Campbell with a plug for the plimsole shop that gave them some new shoes:

Speaking about the incident, Feeder's frontman said: "It's terrifying to think what might have happened, just shocking. We can't praise Colin enough for his quick thinking and action, he saved all their lives. We'd also like to thank the police and firefighters who dealt with the situation and of course, JD Sports for their generosity."

JD Sports had presented the band with GBP800 worth of shoes - their trainers got destroyed in the inferno - and while it's nice to say thank you, it does take some of the shine off the praise for a guy who saved 13 lives to put that on a par with some freebies.
