Picture Me In A Hospital

Album: Sequel To The Prequel (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Babyshambles' bass guitarist Drew McConnell suffered horrendous injuries after being knocked off his bike by a car in East London, suffering multiple breaks to his spine and various bones. This collaboration with vocalist Peter Doherty was inspired by his slow, painful, but ultimately full recovery. He told NME: "This is about Peter coming to visit me after my car accident. One of my first memories was the paramedic telling me I'd broken my spine in three places. Then my next memory is on a slab with doctors all around me. And then the memory after that is waking up to somebody brushing the hair away from my eyes, and I looked up and it was Peter."
