Spike of DRI at Emo's (more by Tim Griffin)
D.R.I.

Founding member and guitarist Spike Cassidy of hardcore/metal crossover pioneers D.R.I. (DIRTY ROTTEN IMBECILES) is in the hospital recovering from complications -- including infection -- that arose after he underwent total colectomy surgery (having his entire colon removed) earlier this month. Doctors have pinpointed the infection and he is expected to be released from the hospital within the next few days.

Spike's rehabilitation will likely have some effect on the band's touring schedule in early 2012. -[Blabbermouth]

Get well soon Spike!

So far no word on how his recovery will affect upcoming dates including Starland Ballroom on 3/24 and Best Buy on 5/12 (supporting Overkill), but we'll keep you informed. Tickets for both shows are still available.

All current tour dates are below, along with some video.

yes, since I had a cancerous polyp, I had my entire colon removed to prevent the cancer from growing into another tumor. They remove your colon through your stomach, so actually the pain is in the abdomin! But Very Funny non the less ...
