Our thoughts are with drummer Rob Rampy this morning. He’s the kitman for hardcore/metal crossover pioneers D.R.I. (or Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) was sent to the hospital right before the group’s Portland, Oregon, show on Friday.
We hope dude recovers. But at the same time, we’re guessing it couldn’t have been anything that serious, since D.R.I. didn’t nix the gig and instead, called in several local drummers to jam with them.
Rampy remained in the hospital over the weekend, forcing D.R.I. to play with guest drummers again on Saturday in the gorgeous city of Seattle, Washington.
You know, I used to love Seattle. A lot. I would dream of it. Then, I went there with this chick, and needless to say, she fucking ruined it for me.
Thank some higher power for good friends who come through for you in the clutch — when the shit goes down. I never should have gone to Vancouver, but am weak-willed when it comes to broads, so I went. But that’s a tale for a different time, kids.
