Spike Cassidy (guitar) of hardcore/metal crossover pioneers D.R.I.(DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES) is reportedly suffering from tendinitis, forcing the cancelation of the band’s previously announced European tour.
A statement from D.R.I.’s European booking agency, M.A.D. Tourbooking, reads as follows: “We are really sorry that we have to tell you that another tour has been canceled. The guitar player of D.R.I. has huge problems with his finger, he can’t bend it anymore, so he’s unable to play guitar. Seems like it’s from an injury moth ago. We wish him all the best and hope that he gets well soon!”
Cassidy underwent emergency surgery in September 2012 for a severe blockage caused by the reversal surgery he had just three weeks earlier.
