Death Angel drummer breaks foot taking out trash

Sunday, February 22, 2015 5:16 PM PT

Will Carroll, drummer for San Francisco By Area thrash metal band Death Angel, fractured a bone in his right foot a few days ago, forcing the band to cancel their appearance at next week's Metal Against Cancer event in Georgia. Carroll had the following to say:

"Two days ago I was taking out the trash and in doing so I missed a step in my basement, rolled my foot and broke a bone in my right foot. Doctors say I can't drum for 3 to 4 weeks. Because of this Death Angel will not be playing the Metal Against Cancer benefit on Feb. 28th. I was looking forward to this show for many reasons but the biggest one is the fact that I lost my mother to cancer 11 years ago so it was important to me and DA to be a part of this great cause. This will also be the first show I have ever cancelled in the 27 years I've been playing live so this is hitting me on multiple levels. We put the word out to a couple of drummer friends to help out but they were unavailable. We decided there wasn't enough time to teach someone the set and make it presentable. The last thing we want to do is put on an unequal performance. People deserve better than that. We (especially me) apologize to everyone who bought tickets and to our fans who were expecting to see us. And to all the organizers, other bands and everyone involved. Maybe we'll be asked to do this again. I certainly hope so."

Lambgoat: You are all boring, lonely f@ggots mimicking each others' corny bullshit every day. I want to know all your real music collections, the last time you got laid, the last time you were treated like more than a subhuman piece of menstrual debris. Keep going and prove me right.

How about when was the last time you ate something that didn't come from a Carl's JR or Burger King? Or wore something other than an XXXL band t-shirt and cargo pants? Or went somewhere without your long, girly hair in a pony tail that wasn't a show? Or how many of your favorite bands have "Anal" somewhere in their name?
We can play stupid pissing match games on the Internet too.

I check comments on news items to hopefully find someone that is marriage material. I've been fortunate enough to find many here and now I have 5 wives and 3 husbands. My latest find is the person who keeps telling band members to commit suicide. I am the definition of the American dream. I have many true loves and lambgoat is to thank for this.

If you need me to go on camera for lambgoat advertisement, plz respond.
