- I never really, truly, followed the story of why drummer Chris Slade stopped playing in AC/DC, but this article sheds some light on it.
- Crappy news from Mr. Big. Their drummer, Pat Torpey, has Parkinson's Disease. There's also information on their official website.
To our fan's around the world:
Pat Torpey, has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and unfortunately will be unable to perform all of his normal drumming duties on our upcoming World Tour in support of our new album, …The Stories We Could Tell.
From Pat: “I’ve been dealing with Parkinson’s symptoms for the past couple of years and only recently received a confirmed diagnosis as symptoms worsened. I intend to fight the disease with same intensity and tenacity that I drum and live my life by and will continue recording and performing, as always, to the best of my ability."
We intend to announce a drummer in the near future whom will handle most of MR BIG’s drumming duties on the Fall 2014 tour but expect Pat to jump on the drums on suitable live songs as well as participating in the our acoustic set.
Thank you for your unwavering support and we'll see you out there soon!
