BULLETBOYS have issued the following "critical release" via their official web site:
"There's been a bad cut in the current BULLETBOYS tour with L.A. GUNS.
"This happened on the bus that was transporting the band, along with BLACK N' BLUE, to their show in Detroit.
"The bus driver, hired by tour bus company Coast to Coast, was responsible for endangering the lives of the band members (he actually stabbed Mark Rojas, the BULLETBOYS tour manager) [see previous story here].
"The injuries sustained in the bus incident have forced the band to return home and for Mark to require medical intervention.
"All BULLETBOYS are fine, however, their tour manager has been hospitalized but should be OK.
"Their booking agent Artists Worldwide, who set up the tour, sent the band on a bus that broke down twice before they could reach their first show. The second bus brought in was the one involved in the incident.
"The band, traveling with BLACK N' BLUE, were forced into cancelling shows in three cities before they called an end to this nightmare.
"Artists Worldwide's inability to make this tour go on as promised has left the band in a terrible predicament, and because of this, the BULLETBOYS will do another tour following the release of the new CD 'Sophie' November 11, with a new and reputable booking agency. (That is, hoping Mark's injuries are healed.)
"Thank you to everyone for their continued support and we promise that we will be back to see you as soon as we can!
"On another note, Steve Riley, drummer for L.A. GUNS asked the BULLETBOYS to find another guitar player because he did not like Kerri Kelli playing with BULLETBOYS any longer. Mr. Kelli, filling in for absent Tracii Guns, has been doing double duties for both bands. Mr. Kelli had agreed, in the presence of the band and Marq's personal manager to do the whole tour.
"We will update you as soon as we figure out what is going on."
