Whether or not they make music and/or tour again, you have to admire The Ghost Inside’s dedication to soldier on after a van accident that shattered their lives. Despite the physical and mental toll that event took on their bodies, one thing is for sure – their spirits weren’t broken by it. A real testament to the lyrics they’ve written over the years, really.
Even more inspiring is seeing drummer Andrew Tkaczyk play on a custom kit made for him, despite losing his leg in the aforementioned accident. Andrew had this to say in the video (which you can watch below).
Today is honestly the first time since our accident almost 3 years ago that I feel close to the level I was playing at when I had two legs.
Today is honestly the first time since our accident almost 3 years ago that I feel close to the level I was playing at when I had two legs. No, it’ll never be 100% like that again but with the help of my Dad and some incredible people, I’ve gotten pretty damn close. The @axispercussion long boards were the third and final piece of the puzzle to making playing drums feel natural again. 1st piece was The Hammer my Dad built. 2nd piece was my trigger setup, and now these pedals. Extremely thankful to Joe Hardy for hooking me up and helping me get back to it. Feeling great about this!
