Gavin DeGraw feared for his life during a street attack in New York after "all hell broke loose" following a heated exchange with a group of men.

DeGraw suffered concussion and memory loss following the incident earlier this month, but the star is slowly remembering the lead-up to the attack. He admits he became embroiled in an exchange with the men following a comment he "didn't like" – and he suddenly became a target.

He tells Washington D.C.';s Hot 99.5, "I met up with a couple of friends… I was walking home… I got a few blocks and then all hell broke loose. Somebody said something to me. I didn't like (it). I let them know I didn't like it…

"The first thing on my mind was, ';My life's in jeopardy' and I was bleeding pretty bad… Fortunately I lived through it. It was very bloody."

Following the attack, the star was taken to hospital by ambulance and underwent surgery to his broken nose before being allowed home.

We're so glad that Gavin is doing well! He's set to perform at Perez Hilton's One Night Only Pre-VMA party in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
