Los Angeles - Nathan Followill feels "close" to death after breaking his ribs.

The Kings of Leon drummer was hospitalised when the group's tour bus was forced to make an emergency stop when a pedestrian jumped in front of the vehicle and he admits the injury has left him in a lot of pain.

Alongside a photograph of himself in his hospital bed with one thumb up and one down, he wrote: "Saw a tweet that said I had died. Not quite, but it feels close. Who knew that you use your ribs for EVERYTHING. (sic)"

The Sex on Fire rocker - who has 20-month-old daughter Violet with wife Jessie Baylin - went on to thank fans for their messages of support.

He wrote: "Thanks again for all of the well wishes. Best family, friends & fans in the whole wide world.(Sic)"

As a result of the 35-year-old musician's injury, the group were forced to postpone a show in New York on Sunday. Fans have been offered refunds.

Guitarist Jared Followill - Nathan's brother - admitted he felt "so sad" about the accident, especially because the band are enjoying the tour so much.

He tweeted: "So sad this a.m.. Bus accident last night. Nathan has broken ribs. This was the most fun tour in a while. We'll be back ASAP. #GetWellNate (sic)"
