Bodyslam (Toon) in hospital with neck injury

Artiwara Artiwara “Toon” Kongmalai

Fans of the rock band Bodyslam were shocked to hear its popular lead singer Artiwara “Toon” Kongmalai was receiving treatment in hospital for a neck problem on Sunday evening.

Toon was sent to Bangkok’s Phramongkutklao Hospital after suffering a bulging disc in his cervical vertebrae. 

The 41-year-old rock star created history last year when his epic, 55-day run across the country raised Bt1.2 billion for cash-strapped public hospitals. Cervical herniated disc is a recognised condition among athletes, though it is not known whether Toon sustained the injury through running.    

A nephew of Aed Carabao, Toon founded Bodyslam with Thanadol Changsawek and Nathaphol Phannachet in 2002. The band have released seven hit albums so far, mostly under GMM Grammy.
