Last week we reported that guitarist Lee McKinney of Born of Osiris broke his foot, the same day their new album stream went live. Unfortunately the break seemed to be a bit more complicated than expected, and BOO officially dropped off the GWAR 30 year anniversary tour this past weekend to allow Lee to heal properly.
The band has released this message via Facebook:
"Thanks for all the love and support you guys have been sending regarding a speedy recovery. My foot was not only dislocated, it was broken/fractured in multiple spots. Surgery was a success. As soon as I get a hard boot on this foot, even though the doctors aren't recommending it – I plan on being out there jamming in a wheelchair on stage Dave Ghrol style! Trust me there's nowhere else I'd rather be." – Lee McKinney / BOO
We will be off tour until further notice and will be not be attending Knotfest tomorrow. We will be back as soon as Lee is tour ready, playing more tracks off our new record.
We wish Lee a speedy recovery!
The GWAR 30 year anniversary tour continues onward with plenty of dates to go. No word on who will replace BOO on the tour, if any.
