Fozzy guitarist Rich Ward was forced to miss the group’s September 2 show in Columbus, OH due to “personal medical reasons.” The band commented:
“Rich Ward regrets to report that he is unable to join FOZZY on stage tonight in Columbus, OH for personal medical reasons. He is currently recovering under the care of medical providers and is expected to be back on tour, providing his high energy performance, very soon. Meanwhile, Fozzy will still perform a full set tonight (and until Rich’s return) for the first time ever as a four piece. SHOW MUST GO ON!”
This news comes shortly after Ward’s ex-wife, Shannon Spruill (aka Daffney Unger), sadly passed away.
