TAD KUBLER HAS PANCREATITIS

30 09 2008

Yesterday The Hold Steady cancelled their seven stop UK tour for undisclosed reasons. Today it was announced that lead guitarist Tad Kubler is currently undergoing treatment in a hospital for Pancreatitis. While pancreatitis is generally caused by excessive alcohol consumption it could’ve been any number of things. A useful mnemonic device for remembering the causes of acute pancreatitis is; ‘GET SMASHED’, that is:

 

  • Gallstones
  • Ethanol
  • Trauma
  • Steroids
  • Mumps
  • Autoimmune causes
  • Scorpion venom
  • Hyperlipidaemias
  • ERCP
  • Drugs (Such as Azathioprine)
 
  • Basically his pancreas is inflamed and it’ll be an unpleasant few days until it gets resolved. A combination of intravenous fluids, antibiotics, and medication will be used to relieve the pain. Sorry buddy… The band will be rescheduling the dates in the UK and they hope to have the situation resolved soon.
