Rob Thomas sliced off part of his finger, is still tweeting

Rob Thomas, songwriter and frontman for Matchbox Twenty, had a little mishap while preparing breakfast this morning, slicing off part of his middle finger. Fortunately, he only needed his thumbs to tweet some surprisingly chill updates on his injury and hospital visit.

Ouch, dude. Hope it doesn’t affect that soulful guitar fretting.
