D.R.I. - Spike Cassidy Admitted To Hospital Due To Colectomy Complications

US punk/crossover thrash metallers D.R.I.'s guitarist and founding member Spike Cassidy is in the hospital recovering from complications after a colectomy (removal of entire colon) performed earlier this month. The recovery process may interfere with the band's future touring plans.

Cassidy was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2004, had a one-foot piece of his large intestine removed in 2006 and underwent radiation and chemotherapy but suffered a post-surgery infection in his last surgery. Doctors immediately diagnosed the issue and treated it, and he is expected to be released from the hospital in a matter of days.

Gah, that operation sounds awful. Hopefully he pulls through and is cancer free with the quickness.

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.
