Papa Roach Drummer Checks Into Rehab

Launch Radio Networks reports: PAPA ROACH drummer Dave Buckner is not on the road with the band at the moment due to what a press release called "personal matters," and singer Jacoby Shaddix checked in to give Launch the straight story. "Dave, he went to rehab and went to go clean his act up 'cause he was out of his f***ing mind," Shaddix explained. "We were kind of tripping for a minute, but we were like, 'You know what? The best thing is for our friend to just get healthy, you know, get right.'My boy D-Boy's just gotta do a little soul-searching, you know? 'Cause I've been through that same s*** myself, and I've been down that road and that whole nine and it's like, you know, I know how miserable you could get."

Until Buckner returns in June, PAPA ROACH has recruited UNWRITTEN LAW drummer Tony Palermo to fill in. Shaddix told Launch how it felt to have someone different behind the kit. "It was really kind of like scary, 'cause I mean, you know, drummer, it's like every drummer's a little bit different, you know," he said. "But this guy came in and just, he's been ripping it every night. So it's been kind of interesting, it's been different, but it's been really fun."

PAPA ROACH is on the Door to Dorm Tour with HINDER and plays Tuesday night (May 1) at the University of South Carolina in Aiken.

Shaddix also said that following a trip to Europe in June, PAPA ROACH will go out with HINDER and BUCKCHERRY on a two-month U.S. tour beginning in July.

Well there's nothing wrong with drinking as long as you don't take it over board. I won't touch drugs though. And having a small amount of alcohol in your system actually helps your sexual performance also. But not too much or else it goes down. Just a little fun fact I learned in college Personal Wellness class. :)

I loved "infest" back in the day, i didnt like lovehatetragedy very much except for she loves me not, getting away with murder was a good alt rock album, i didn't like paramour sessions. It would of been better if they would of became a heavier instead of a softer alt rock band. Hope the Drummer gets his sh*t straight, just keep drinking in perspective

Holy sh** on "your mom"!

Took the... you know... what are they again... let me pause, utter bullsh** phrases, space fillers to be quoted because they're (like) highly prized and like stuff, because I'm like a musician... you know...?

COOL! You can sing a catchy song that gets an assload of radio play, but you can't speak coherent english w/o a f***ing space filler?
Your buddy's in rehab - maybe you should check into a linguistic school... "The English Language for Idiots".

sh**, Boomhower from "Family Guy" would rate higher in Anglo-linguistic capabilities.
