That's terrible. I hope everyone comes out of this ok. I saw them in 2010 with the Deftones and they were amazing. I still need to pick up the 'Green' and 'Yellow' albums too...

At least their care will be 100% free.

I'm not really into Baroness but I hope everything is well with them. That must've been an unreal feeling when they went off the side and didn't flip over.

The girlfriend of one of my friends works for the band and was on the bus. He is happy to report that everyone survived, with varying degrees of injuries. That is all I know at this point.

Aww sh**, and I was just getting into Yellow & Green... awesome albums.

It appears everyone made it out ok, I hope that is the case and a swift recovery is made so they can keep kicking a$$ on tour.

BTW SonicTherapy that article you linked referred to them as a Punk band about 200 times. >;.>;

If you want to be an arborist... it's advisable NOT to use the bus as a brush-hog.
