Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist cleared to tourThursday, July 11, 2013 7:48 AM PT / 6,653 views
Recently sidelined with a broken wrist, The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman has apparently recovered adequately enough to participate in the upcoming Summer Slaughter Tour. Weinman has issued the following update:
"When the Doctor told me I broke my wrist and that this particular bone doesn't typically heal my heart sunk. Our record had just come out and we were just getting started with its promotional cycle. I would not let this stop me. I immediately set up an appointment with the best hand surgeon in NY. "I told him I had to play guitar again in a month. He said, 'ok' I'll put a screw in your wrist.' Two weeks after surgery they took my stitches and cast off and I started playing guitar again. Definitely not the most pleasant experience, but now I almost feel back to myself. "I have to say that I have a new found appreciation for playing and I can't wait to see you all this summer. Now, back to my rehab."
