Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler has recently took some time away from the band as they have been direct support for Slayer on their final world tour. In July it was announced that Prong and Winds of Plague drummer Art Cruz would replace Adler on the tour but there wasn’t any explanation given as to why Adler was being temporarily replaced. Today the drummer revealed why he has been absent and updated fans on his current status. Chris explains he was involved in a motorcycle accident late last year and has been recovering ever since. Stating “I had a motorcycle accident late last year that shattered my collarbone and right shoulder and also chipped bones in my hip.” Even though he was able to play a few shows earlier this year, he had to step down once again due to issues he experienced related to his injury. He has since had surgeries to help correct the damage. As well as the surgeries, he has been strict with his diet, even including supplements like resveratrol powder to ensure his bones heal properly and that is body is getting all of the nutrients it needs.
Chances are high that he contacted a legal firm such as lamber goodnow to assist with medical funds due to the loss of income from that portion of the tour. Motorcycling accidents can be extremely dangerous and often result in injury. If you become involved in such an incident then it may be a good idea to contact someone like this motorcycle accident attorney in Los Angeles to help you in the aftermath.
