Benji Webbe scarred in attack

2016-02-01 by Philip Whitehead | 18 Comments
Skindred, Dub War and Mass Mental frontman Benji Webbe has posted news of injuries he sustained after he and his girlfriend were attacked in Newport after a party over the course of the weekend. While his girlfriend, Julie Christian, was pushed to the floor and spat on, Benji was struck across the face with broken glass and had to receive treatment at Royal Glamorgan Hospital, where it was revealed that the cuts were a mere two inches away from his jugular vein.

Benji says that the scars from the attack will stay with him for the rest of his life, but he has forgiven the attackers. Police in Glamorgan are appealing for witnesses who may know who the female attacker is.

He's pretty lucky. That was a long cut as well.

onionbubs he's the frontman for ragga-metal band Skindred, and in Mass Mental with Robert Trujillo and Brooks Wackerman. He also released a solo album last year.

Glad to hear he's okay. He definitely doesn't deserve shit like this happening to him or his misses.

Skindred killed it when I saw them before Steel Panther, hope they're both okay. Wankers with knives.

Why has he forgiven the random people who cut him and pushed his girl over?

He doesn't like grudges and iirc he's a Christian too and forgiveness and tolerance is a big deal for him.

Doubt it, just seems like a skin deep cut (it's just that the jugular vein is one of the most exposed veins in the human body). Wouldn't have gone anywhere near his throat or vocal chords.
