Whitechapel guitarist leaves band

Whitechapel guitarist Brandon Cagle has officially stepped down from his position in the band as he continues to recover from a motorcyle accident that has left him unable to play. Zach Householder, who had been filling in for Cagle in recent months, has now taken his place on a permanent basis. Cagle has issued the following statement: "I just got back from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, the number one hospital in the country for Brachial Plexus injury. Which I have in my right arm from my motorcycle wreck on April 28th of this year. I'm going to need surgery to restore the function in my arm. At the moment I'm unable to move my arm at all, I can only shrug my shoulder. Even after the surgery I need, it will take a few years for all of the function to return to my arm. So I was not kicked out of the band, I'm just unable to play, so Zack is replacing me full time. Now that I've address that issue I have a small request of everyone. I don't have health insurance so I'm having to pay for the surgery out of my pocket. I have to put a $10,000 down payment to get the surgery. The biggest problem is that I only have a 9 week window to get the surgery in. If I wait to long the surgery won't help me, so I need it ASAP! My request is if you could spare a $1 to help me get my surgery that would be much much appreciated. Donations can be sent to my Paypal account. My account name is Grathon6@yahoo.com. If you don't have a Paypal and would like to donate you can send it in the mail to: Brandon Cagle 7555 Chatham Circle Knoxville, TN 37909 Or at shows... the band will have a donation jar. Every cent can help. If I can get this surgery I will be able to have a some what normal life. May even be able to play guitar again and write more of the music you all love! Even if you can't donate any money I still appreciate all of you for supporting the band!! Without you we would be nothing! Thank you so much."

i_put_the_fun_in_funeral 11/25/2007 11:29:15 AM

likeatonabricks 11/25/2007 12:13:04 PM

ShaolinLambKiller 11/25/2007 11:27:55 AM Don't they have 3 guitarists? who fcking cares. LOL. Yea, shit sucks, this band rules, but everyone has money issues. Not having health insurance is not the smartest thing in the world.


lartsa 11/25/2007 12:31:04 PM

yeah, that guy will never fck again


lady 11/25/2007 12:55:00 PM

It's nearly impossible to be over 18 in a touring band and have health insurance. He wasn't really being irresponsible, he was trying his hand at "making it".


forumdrama 11/25/2007 1:32:50 PM

maybe I'll give him a buck or two.


notdeadyet 11/25/2007 2:39:05 PM

lartsa 11/25/2007 12:31:04 PM yeah, that guy will never fck again bwaaaahahahha


amputation 11/25/2007 2:42:01 PM

he can shrug his shoulder. all he has to do is superglue a pick to his fingers. he can play those riffs. i don't see what he's bitching about.


amputation 11/25/2007 2:44:23 PM

also, quit doing a buck 40 on your motorcycle through the mountains after having smoked an eight ball of meth...


feastondeadgirls 11/25/2007 3:36:50 PM

vtacore 11/25/2007 4:58:06 PM

he shouldn't have been riding his motorcycle.. he knows that there is always a chance of getting seriously hurt when doing something that ups our chances of getting fcked up.. idiot.


BruceWayne 11/25/2007 5:42:59 PM

rkellypeedonme 11/25/2007 7:27:00 PM

I should donate my money to a dude who probably did something stupid on a motorcycle ? No fcking thanks. Thats what you risk riding one of those.


deathcoresucks 11/25/2007 8:04:19 PM

Man, you guys are especially mean today...


BZM 11/25/2007 8:10:25 PM

itouchyourkids 11/25/2007 9:20:29 PM

i didnt read anything on this page.


goddammit 11/25/2007 10:13:01 PM

Shit sucks. Brandon's a cool dude and wrote some awesome shit. It's surprising how everyone on Lambgoat is being a gay. Oh wait, no it isn't.


thenumber12suckslikeyou 11/25/2007 11:41:05 PM

tight guitarists.. 3 is overkill though. who the fck can hear you anyway? shit band.


shredemdead 11/26/2007 12:33:48 AM

this sucks, but riding motorcycles is fcking retarded for this exact reason, so no donate ever.


ikillinmydreams 11/26/2007 10:43:16 AM

shitty news. good kid


little_alex_fts 11/26/2007 11:03:34 AM

Shitty news, awesome dude, awesome band, but what doesn't stand up right here in my book is that he owns a motorcycle, but has no health insurance? what the hell he can't manage his own god damn money?!


grindcore 11/26/2007 4:39:59 PM

thenumber12suckslikeyou 11/25/2007 11:41:05 PM tight guitarists.. 3 is overkill though. who the fck can hear you anyway? shit band. THIS IS THE MOST CONFUSING POST I'VE EVER READ. Shit band, hopefully they all die.


munderbite 11/26/2007 5:30:08 PM

I was in a touring band and I had insurance, it cost about $100 a month. If your band is making that don't be on tour. But, come on, the dude made a mistake, does that mean that he shouldn't have a functional arm for the rest of his life?


munderbite 11/26/2007 5:34:34 PM

correction, "If your band is NOT making that, then don't be on tour."


hacksawtothegoat 11/26/2007 7:52:56 PM

Wow... you pricks talking shit honestly can't spare a fcking dollar to help out another human being? fcking pathetic...


metaljohn 11/26/2007 8:27:36 PM

yeah seriously this is some sad shit, i can't imagine how depressing it must be to be in his shoes, especially since his band is a major new priority for metal blade. Best of luck, lets keep it posi lambgoat! (like that would ever happen)


xdivisivex 11/26/2007 10:08:01 PM

good luck mang.


BZM 11/27/2007 2:45:54 AM

the guys in whitechapel are fcking gays, though - they broke into FIH's rehearsal space and threw their guitarist's fcking Uberschall on the ground, smashed it up, gouged out their speaker cabs, etc.


ikillinmydreams 11/27/2007 11:23:02 AM

who the fck is FIH? they prob deserved it


xBBBx 11/29/2007 7:48:02 AM

How the fck is FIH??? BZM's the gay


Diabolical 8/8/2008 7:24:44 AM
