Snow Patrol Drummer Breaks Arm Whilst Snowboarding

You can cut the irony with a knife. Sucks, though. He's a pretty good drummer (and it's a GREAT band. One of my faves.) Anyhoo:

Snow Patrol drummer Jonny Quinn has been replaced for the band's forthcoming tour - after breaking his arm in a snowboarding accident. The hitmakers have enlisted the services of longtime friend Graham Hopkins to replace Quinn. Quinn suffered his injury while snowboarding in the French Alps.

Last year, Snow Patrol were forced to cancel several European shows when bassist Paul Wilson suffered an injury, and the band also had to cut a number of American appearances when singer Gary Lightbody lost his voice. Hopkins will join the band for their forthcoming European and Australian dates, starting on March 4 in Offenbach, Germany.


No idea if Snow Patrol had to call the snow patrol.
--Good lord, that was a bad joke.
