Folk Singer Unscathed After Penn Station Accident

Folk singer unscathed after Penn Station accident

By Mara Siegler

Folk legend Tom Paxton was miraculously unhurt after he fell backward down an escalator at Penn Station.

The 79-year-old "Ramblin' Boy" singer, who received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009, tells us, "I was going up normally and I felt myself pulled back and I couldn't stop it. It was scary as hell. They stopped the escalator and got me on my feet and I was good to go."

Joking, he said, "I'm a little old for that kind of dive. By the degree of difficulty, I hoped for higher scores . . . I'm just glad I didn't make the obits today."

While he amazingly escaped serious injury, aside from bloody hands, he did crack the head of his Martin guitar.

Paxton was on his way to a gig at the Cutting Room for a memorial for record producer Milt Okun, whom he had worked with for years. He was able to borrow a guitar at the venue and took the stage as planned.

Lord Burgess, who wrote "Day-O," also performed.

You and I are in the same age bracket, and falling may be a free ride, but not a good idea. I fell off a chair while installing a ceiling fan and crashed into my dresser. Lamed up my shoulder, but the bureau came all un together.
