D.R.I. Drummer Hospitalized & Forced To Sit Out Shows
By Jordan Liffengren
Drummer Rob Rampy of the hardcore, thrash-punk band D.R.I. was sent to
the hospital last Friday right before the group’s show in
Portland, Oregon. Reason as to why he was hospitalized is unknown as of
yet. The band voted against canceling their show and instead decided to
rely upon the help of several local drummers from bands like MDC, Spell
Catcher, Exrcuciator and Dethproof to fill Rampy’s shoes. The
drummer was in the hospital over the weekend, forcing D.R.I. to continue
playing with guest drummers again on Saturday at their Seattle, Washington show.
