HELLYEAH Guitarist TOM MAXWELL To Undergo Hand Surgery In September
HELLYEAH guitarist Tom Maxwell will undergo hand surgery in September, just before the release of the band’s sixth album, “Welcome Home”. The group will stay off the road for a couple of months while he rehabilites before kicking off a new tour cycle in November.
Speaking to Rock 100.5 The KATT’s Cameron Buchholtz before HELLYEAH’s August 14 concert at the Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Maxwell said (see video): “I got in a car accident and broke my middle finger in my left hand. I keep getting trigger finger, which — it gets stuck. It’s really odd — an odd feeling. So I’ve got a series of cortisone shots, which the percentage of the cure rate from that is about 70 percent. Unfortunately, I didn’t fall into that. So now my doctor is gonna go in and make a little incision and go in here and fix what’s not right.”
While Tom agrees that the timing of his surgery is not ideal, he says: “Better now than… I can’t keep getting these cortisone shots. You’re only allowed to have a certain amount. My doctor hooked me up last time before this summer tour. So I just have to get it done.”
“Welcome Home” is due on September 27 via Eleven Seven Music. The disc will mark the group’s final effort with drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who died more than a year ago.
