Are Staind a metal band?
Fuck no. But that first Staind album was tough as nails. And really, there are a lot of people who probably consider Staind a metal band.
I am here to tell you they’re hard rock, at best.
Regardless, Staind’s frontman Aaron Lewis was forced to cancel an appearance Saturday night at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, after having an accident with his Cessna Citation V jet.
Lewis had been filming a segment for his TV show “On The Road” for the Sportsman Channel in Texas and was on his way to Tulsa when the incident occurred.
“Aaron was set to depart from Warton, Texas, Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.,” stated a BOK Center press release. “Aaron and the television crew were tracking teal duck for his reality hunting show. After the shoot, the flight was to depart for Tulsa, Oklahoma, where Lewis was scheduled to appear [Saturday night] at the BOK Center after Brian Davis and Chase Bryant as direct support to Brantley Gilbert on the ‘Let It Ride’ tour.”
Said Lewis in a statement:
“I’m so glad that we are safe. However, I am really sorry that the fans in Tulsa were disappointed and let down with me not making the show. I promise I’ll be back to Tulsa soon.”
