Dananananaykroyd Drummer Breaks Arm At Australian Gig

By Andy Doerschuk Published July 31, 2009

Scottish "fight-pop" hardcore band Dananananakroyd was forced to cancel its July 29 show in Sydney, Australia after drummer John Baillie Junior fell offstage and broke his arm. "The details still aren't really very clear. John, I think he just kind of came off the stage a bit funny and has done something pretty bad to his arm. The latest I've heard is that he's taken a bit of his elbow bone off," singer Callum Gunn explained. Fortuitously, a doctor in the audience was able to begin administering treatment before the ambulance arrived. A post on the band's Twitter stated, "Sorry everyone, had to cancel remaining Australian shows – John broke his arm during the show in Sydney last night. Get better soon JBJ! X."
