In a letter published in today’s Herald Sun, music guru Ian “Molly” Meldrum has spoken for the first time about the accident that ‘changed his life forever.’
He thanked his friends, family and members of the public for all their support since he fell off a ladder in December last year. Molly was placed in an induced coma after suffering injuries to his skull, ribs, shoulder blade, vertebrae and collarbone.
“I wish I could reply to all the cards and messages, but it’s impossible – it would take all year and I’d never get my book finished!”
On Sunday Molly Meldrum was inducted into the Logies Hall of Fame.
