Bands' heavy metal night for Nick.
Metal bands S.K.W.A.D, Set In Stone and Neckbrace thrashed out their raucous brand of music at a benefit concert staged at Dempsey's Bar in Castle Street, Cardiff, for 21-year-old Nick Butcher last night.
Motorhead star Phil took to the stage himself to entertain the crowd who packed out the top floor of the pub.
Nick's father Tim, who has been a technician with Motorhead since 1979, was among the crowd watching his close friend Phil rock the stage along with the three acts.
Phil, 44, said: '
I decided to support tonight's cause, which is a good one, to raise money to help make Nick's life more comfortable.'
Nick's mum Rita Watkins, 46, of Rhydyfelin, said: 'The concert was marvellous.
'Nick's back to his normal self.
'He was sedated after the accident and left partially blind and partially deaf.
'His girlfriend Gemma Howard was conscious throughout the accident and suffered cuts and bruises. Their friend Sarah Bendon is recovering from a crushed pelvis.
'Nick's faculties are back to normal, his neurologist is amazed.
'He's a miracle boy.
'The air ambulance saved Nick's life.'
