San Diego deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation’s drummer David McGraw underwent surgery for an abscess in his armpit on Monday, April 15th in Berlin, Germany. In spite of the surgery McGraw was able to play a show that evening as part of the European tour with Cryptopsy and Decrepit Birth.
You can read a quote from McGraw here: “Berlin! You rule! I had the gnarliest abscess under my arm pit, and you took care of me for only 50 [euros]. I had a full-on surgery, general anesthesia, private recovery room, everything, and I’m not even from here, just another foreigner on tour coming through town. I was treated like if I was at a private clinic. I had enough time to let the drugs wear off and made it to perform at the show tonight. I didn’t get to see any of the sights, but instead I experienced something way more meaningful to me… seriously, thank you!”
