Every Time I Die frontman leaves tour to be with ailing wife
Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley has revealed that his pregnant wife had an emergency caesarean section last night due to a "rare and life threatening complication." As such, Buckley will miss an indefinite portion of the band's current tour. Here is what Buckley had to say:
"Last night as I was preparing for my book release party at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, I received an urgent call that my wife Lindsay - who was at the time only 7 months pregnant - had developed a rare and life threatening complication which required immediate removal of our child in order to save both her life and Lindsay's. Andy Williams and our tech Kevin White raced me to the hospital in Buffalo where I saw sights that no man, father or husband should ever have to see. It is here that I now wait as their conditions stabilize. ETID has allowed me all the time I need in order to handle this extremely delicate situation but they will - with my blessing - continue the tour without me, enlisting the help of very close friends to handle vocal duties. I apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause and will do all I can to make it up to you. For the moment, however, all of my being is focused on the recovery of my lionhearted wife and my frail but beautiful new daughter. thank you for your understanding. give my bandmates my love when you see them."
