Former MEGADETH Drummer To Play With STONE SOUR

October 11, 2002

Former MEGADETH drummer Jimmy DeGrasso will be sitting behind the kit with STONE SOUR at the next 2-3 weeks' worth of shows on the band's current North American tour. He will be filling in for regular SS skinsman Joel Ekman, who fractured his wrist walking off the drum riser during frontman Corey Taylor's solo performance of the track "Bother" at Hard Hat in Toledo, Ohio Tuesday night.

DeGrasso spent all of yesterday rehearsing with the band, who were forced to reschedule their Clifton Park, New York date, originally planned for Wednesday night, to December 10th, according to informed sources. His first show with the group will take place tonight at Webster Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut.
