Born Of Osiris guitarist on the mend after surgery

Saturday, October 24, 2015 8:40 AM PT

After breaking his foot earlier this week, Born Of Osiris guitar player Lee McKinney is now recovering following successful surgery. McKinney had this to say:

"Thanks for all the love and support you guys have been sending regarding a speedy recovery. My foot was not only dislocated, it was broken/fractured in multiple spots. Surgery was a success. As soon as I get a hard boot on this foot, even though the doctors aren't recommending it - I plan on being out there jamming in a wheelchair on stage Dave Ghrol style! Trust me there's nowhere else I'd rather be."

Meanwhile, his bandmates had this to say:

"We will be off tour until further notice and will be not be attending Knotfest tomorrow. We will be back as soon as Lee is tour ready, playing more tracks off our new record."

When ur playing armenia to 3000+ fans it's all about style and well wheelchair cast is not a cool guitar friend! Serj tmkn-sustm and down fame. Rock (in rio) all about the style, our hot video CHOP SUY featured a cool effect where me and daren and SHAVO all faded in and out of eachother like Indian dance, and well thats where the metal style comes from. Another rock milestone came from when I ate the Chinese take out in that video looking at the camera, that was another style
