On March 3, 2016, David Pajo was struck by a car whilst on his motorcycle. He spent six weeks in the hospital, twelve surgeries, three blood transfusions, amongst many other things. He documented this time on his Instagram with his tongue-in-cheek series, "Hospital Selfies." He is currently back at his home in Echo Park, CA, under the supervision of family and friends. He remains in good spirits, continues to record his next solo record, and enjoys his many visitors. We wish him a speedy recovery.
