SEVERED IN SECONDS; THE ROTTED GUITARIST SLICES FINGER BUT BOA APPEARANCE STILL TO GO AHEAD
The Rotted guitarist Tim Carley has received hospital treatment after a 60kg flight case fell and severed the top of his finger. The incident left the bone unattached to the rest of his finger, which doctors say will take at least 10 weeks to heal.
Carley comments; “When I asked [the doctor] if I could still play the guitar, she replied ‘I’ve heard your records, and to be honest, I can’t see this making much difference.’ The rest of the guys in the band call me Timmy Iommi because of the riffs I wrote for the new album. Today, I got one step closer to walking in the great man’s shoes.
The guitarist is determined not to let the incident impede on the bands current touring/festival schedule, stating; “Unlike half the musicians in metal magazines, I’m not a moaning little girl, so I’m playing Obscene Extreme, Dong Open Air and Bloodstock with three fucking fingers and there’s nothing that fate, karma and all the other bastards that mock me can do about it. The power of d-beats, blast beats and heavy metal shall never die!”
