Machine Head’s Jared MacEachern Separates Shoulder In Mountain Biking Accident

Machine Head bassist Jared MacEachern has separated his shoulder in a mountain biking accident. He said the following about that:

“Let me say first, I AM NOT MISSING TOUR. I had a mountain biking accident, and what you see in the x-ray is a level 3/5 shoulder separation in my left shoulder. No broken bones, I have little to no pain, and my fingers still work just fine. Best of all, NO SURGERY REQUIRED. My left arm is currently in a sling, so I cannot support a guitar on a strap. HOWEVER, in a few weeks I can sit and play, with full healing being complete before tour. I want to thank my wonderful, amazingly patient girlfriend @kt_lonewolf for taking care of me❤️! Leave me a “💪🏻” in the comments for speedy healing! #oops #illbefine #xray”
