Cradle of Filth guitarist James McIlroy went under the knife today.
The dude had back surgery, to alleviate long-term chronic pain.
The band said that the operation will “repair his spine,” relieving pain “that has kept him absent from the recent tour of Europe.”
“I am going into hospital today as they’ve graciously decided to give me a bed, and will be going into surgery tomorrow late morning or early afternoon. Operation lasts about 3-5 hours, and I should be back among the living on Sunday. It kind of goes something like this.
“All the support, and well wishes from across the world, the band and crewdle has been amazing, and I couldn’t wish for more support in my quest to obtain a similar 360 degree head movement of an owl (if you’re going to get part of your neck replaced, you may as well upgrade)! After this, I’ll also technically be more metal.
“Thanks to everyone, and see you on the other side, ready to fucking rock!”
Good luck, dude. We hope everything went well, and you’ll be in pain no more.
