GARBAGE drummer Butch Vig has again been sidelined for a number of dates on the band's current tour due to "an acute inner ear infection causing painful sensitivity to sound," according to the band's official web site. Session drummer Matt Chamberlain (i.e. FIONA APPLE, TORI AMOS) will be filling in for him until he recovers.
Last November, Vig sat out dates on a European tour after contracting Hepatitis A, an illness which turned his skin and eyes yellow and left him unable to walk. Chamberlain, who played on some tracks on the band's latest Interscope effort, Beautifulgarbage, filled in for those performances as well.
GARBAGE are due to kick off a month-long European trek on June 10th in Madrid, Spain.
