Kirk Windstein Forced Into Rehab
Kirk Windstein of EYEHATEGOD, DOWN, and KINGDOM OF SORROW has been forced to check into rehab for an addiction to alcohol. As a result, Kirk Windstein will not be performing at Ozzfest 2010 with KINGDOM OF SORROW – Kenny Hickey of TYPE O NEGATIVE will replace him.
“Hey all, Kirk here. Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be taking a much needed break and will not be joining my bros in KINGDOM OF SORROW for Ozzfest 2010. I have entered the AA program and am turning over a new leaf. 25 years of gigging and touring has taken its toll and my drinking is now preventing me from being the healthiest, best player that I can be. It’s been a fun ride, but I’m ready to tackle this sober and look forward to being at the top of my game with all of my projects! I am happy to say that Kenny Hickey will once again be filling my spot for these 8 shows. Thanks Kenny, I love you bro!!! Thanks to everyone for their support.”
