Kinda sucks. Not going to Ozzfest so this doesn't effect me but sucks for whomever was wanting to see Kirk this summer. Atleast he will be getting himself cleaned up.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kenny Hickey of TYPE O NEGATIVE will fill in for guitarist Kirk Windstein during KINGDOM OF SORROW's upcoming Ozzfest run.

Hickey previously toured with KINGDOM OF SORROW in 2008 while Windstein was on the road with DOWN.

Commented Windstein: "Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be taking a much-needed break and will not be joining my bros in KINGDOM OF SORROW for Ozzfest.

"I have entered the AA program and am turning over a new leaf. 25 years of gigging and touring has taken its toll and my drinking is now preventing me from being the healthiest, best player that I can be.

It's been a fun ride, but I'm ready to tackle this sober and look forward to being at the top of my game with all of my projects!

"I am happy to say that Kenny Hickey will once again be filling my spot for these eight shows.

"Thanks, Kenny; I love you bro!!!

"Thanks to everyone for their support."

Added KINGDOM OF SORROW frontman Jamey Jasta: "The road is no place for Kirk right now. He has begun to address his problems so he can lead a happy and healthy life and continue to rock with DOWN, CROWBAR and KINGDOM OF SORROW. I only want the best for him and I feel like sitting this tour out is a step in the right path."

As bummed as I am to not have Kirk, I've seen them with Kenny before and it was awesome, so this will be great :D

I guess that means Jasta will do Kirk's vocal parts as well as his own. The new album is a pretty even split between the pair.
