DeGraw was alone at the time, however the New York Post reports he had been out drinking with friends prior to being assaulted at the corner of 6th Street and 1st Avenue. After the beating DeGraw kept walking and was then struck by a taxi, but not seriously injured.
DeGraw’s on tour with Maroon 5 and Train, and had to cancel a performance scheduled for August 8th in New York. It’s unclear when he’ll be able to perform again.
His next album, Sweeter, is due to be released on September 20, 2011.
