Ballistic Bassist To Undergo Surgery

BALLISTIC mainman Tom Gattis (ex-DEUCE, TENSION, WARDOG) has posted the following message on the band's official web site:

"The blinding speed, complex runs, and most importantly the flawless-clean execution of Tim's [O'Connor, BALLISTIC bassist] bass parts are the foundation of the band's music. He sets the absolute highest standards for himself, and that necessitates that he is in 100% top playing condition to be able to play his parts to his satisfaction. To that end, Tim will be going in for an operation in August on his right hand (he is recovering from a similar operation to his left hand) to repair damage that years of constant playing has done. This will relieve him of a great deal of physical pain. We all wish Tim a speedy recovery and a quick return to the stage."

BALLISTIC, who recently announced the addition of singer Tony Taylor (TWISTED TOWER DIRE, ISEN TORR, OCTOBER 31) to the group's ranks, are working on the material for their second album, tentatively due in late 2005/early 2006.
