Drummer BOBBY JARZOMBEK Breaks Wrist, Is Forced To Sit Out PAINMUSEUM Festival Gig

April 23, 2007

Drummer Bobby Jarzombek (SEBASTIAN BACH, HALFORD) will have out sit out the upcoming PAINMUSEUM appearance at the SOS Festival at Expo Feria in Torreon, Mexico on May 4. Jarzombek sustained a wrist injury last week that will keep him from doing any gigs for the next month and a half or so.

"Just one of those things — I was re-arranging my rehearsal studio in Hollywood when my shoelace got caught in the 'U' part of a guitar stand (the part that the neck sits into) that was laying on the floor. I couldn't get loose, stumbled, and instinctively stuck my hands out to break my fall," recounts Jarzombek. "When I got back up it started to hurt but at first I didn't think it was anything more than a strain. I had a doctor take a look at it anyway and X-rays confirmed that I had broken my left wrist. The doc tells me that it's a clean break and will heal nicely but I need to have a cast on for about 6 weeks. I've never had a broken bone in my life so this is a bit strange for me. By the way, in addition to the standard white, casts come in all colors these days - red, blue, yellow, you name it. I went for the black, of course. Gotta keep it METAL!

"I had a couple of local recording sessions booked in the coming weeks that I was looking forward to; those are out the window. Another bummer is that I'll have to let go the PAINMUSEUM show in Mexico although the gig isn't cancelled altogether. Metal Mike has been making a few calls and already has a replacement ready to go — I'm sure he'll make the announcement shortly. As far as the June gigs with Sebastian in Japan and Australia/New Zealand are concerned — some of that seems to be up on the air right now but I'm sure an official announcement will be made in the coming days.

"In the meantime, I think I'll be working on my double bass drumming and look forward to having this contraption removed as soon as the doctors feel I'm good to go and can start rehab excercises."
