Acclaimed drummer Bobby Jarzombek (FATES WARNING, SEBASTIAN BACH, HALFORD) has posted the following message earlier today (Wednesday, April 30) on his Facebook page:"Well, this kind of sucks....! Not to scare y'all, but I'm in the hospital and need to stay here overnight. My left knee started hurting a bit when I was in Europe with FATES WARNING last week. The pain continued after I got back home to San Antonio (along with a slight fever). I was thinking the fever was due to working outside in the record heat weather here in San Antonio. Anyway, this continued until late last night when the pain spread halfway down my leg. My wife Carol and I went to the hospital. Turns out I have cellulitis. So I'm stuck here with antibiotics in my veins, and they'll look at it tomorrow to determine if it needs to be cut and drained. If so, no drumming for a week!" Jarzombek recently spent time on the road with FATES WARNING in support of "Darkness In A Different Light", the group's first new studio album in nearly a decade and the first to feature Jarzombek on drums. The North American leg of the tour kicked off on November 15, 2013 at Mojoe's in Joliet, Illinois. Best known for his 12-year tenure with the HALFORD band, featuring legendary JUDAS PRIEST vocalist Rob Halford, Bobby Jarzombek is also currently the drummer for progressive metal pioneers FATES WARNING, long-running New York City metal institution RIOT, and former SKID ROW frontman Sebastian Bach. Making his recording debut with JUGGERNAUT on "Baptism Under Fire" in 1986, the San Antonio, Texas native has also toured and recorded with SPASTIC INK, CED EARTH, DEMONS & WIZARDS, ROB ROCK, JOHN WEST and PAINMUSEUM, among others.
