A day after their frontman observed the extent of his injuries, The Ghost Inside drummer Andrew Tkaczyk has, sadly, revealed the loss of his right leg due to injuries sustained in the bus crash.
The group was involved in the accident, which resulted in fatalities, while travelling through Texas last year.
Tkaczyk was initially placed in a 10-day induced coma following the accident. This week, the musician updated fans via an instagram post on his personal account (see below).
You can contribute to a GoFundMe campaign set-up to help the band members with associated medical costs. Moreover, the group’s label, Epitaph, is still donating all profits from the worldwide sales of The Ghost Inside‘s catalogue direct to the band “indefinitely.”
So the rumors are true everyone! Unfortunately I did lose my leg in this accident. This is one injury among many others such as fractures in my ribs, spine, and hip along with some ligament tears in my rotator cuff and Labrum. I have remained in positive and good spirits since I woke up from a 10 day coma in November to the sight of my missing leg. Not going to let it stop me. I don’t care what anyone says. It’s a long road ahead, but I WILL play drums again. Can’t wait to get back on the kit. Couldn’t have dealt with this without the love and support from my brothers in TGI & crew, friends, fans and family. Thank you all ❤️
