According to The NYTimes,
Gavin DeGraw, the hook-savvy singer and songwriter, was recovering at Bellevue Hospital Center on Tuesday after being assaulted on a Lower East Side street just after he left a club he owns, his publicist said.
Mr. DeGraw, 34, was taken to Bellevue hospital at 4:15 a.m. Monday after he was attacked by a group of assailants as he walked on East Houston Street, the police said. He suffered a concussion and a broken nose, as well as cuts and bruises, said his publicist, Fran Curtis.
No one had been arrested in the assault and the motive remained unclear, the police said. Investigators lack a good description of the assailants.
Mr. DeGraw was attacked just after he left the National Underground, a club he started with his brother, Joey DeGraw, who is also a musician. The club presents live music every night.
Mr. DeGraw became a pop-rock star in 2003, when his debut album Chariot (J Records) yielded several hit singles, among them â€œI Donâ€™t Want to Be,â€ which reached the No. 1 on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart and later became the theme song for the television show â€œOne Tree Hill.â€ His new album, â€œSweeter,â€ is due out on Sept. 20.
Still hospitalized on Tuesday afternoon, Mr. DeGraw canceled a concert at the performing arts center in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., but he had not yet called off a performance at Jones Beach on Friday.
