The Ghost Inside’s drummer Andrew Tkaczyk has confirmed that his right leg was amputated following the bus crash the band were involved in late last year. However, he has insisted that this does not mean the end of his drumming career.

Posting on Instagram, Tkaczyk wrote: “So the rumours 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”.

Despite this, he continued: “I have remained in positive and good spirits since I woke up from a ten 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”.

As previously reported, the band’s bus collided with a lorry outside El Paso in Texas, killing the drivers of both vehicles. A number of crowdfunding campaigns were set up following the accident to help raise money for medical treatment. Also, Epitaph Records has since said that it will pay 100% of all profits for their releases directly to the band.
