Gamma Ray Guitarist Injured And Forced To Sit Out Sweden Rock Cruise

Gamma Ray announced on its Facebook page that guitarist Henjo Richter was injured in a bike accident and is currently in the hospital. As a result, he will not be able to attend the Sweden Rock Cruise scheduled for October 6-7, 2011. The band plans to play without Richter, opting to have keyboardist Corvin Bahn use a distortion pedal.

The announcement reads: "Dear All, Unfortunately we are forced to deliver the bad news that Henjo Richter had a bike accident and broke three ribs and the collarbone, so he will not be able to play on the cruise. Since we couldn't find a replacement and did not want to cancel the show and leave our fans disappointed, we have decided to play the show nevertheless and give our longtime live keyboarder Mr. Corvin Bahn (Crystal Breed) some extraspace and a distortionpedal for his organsounds. So if you're on the boat and around 1:45 am hear something that sounds like Deep Purple playing Gamma Ray songs, its us. Hope you'll enjoy this 'Show beyond the ordinary'. Cheerzzz and have fun, Da Rrrrayzzz."
