Unbelievable...Lucero drummer Roy Berry and lead guitarist Brian Venable were mugged last week after a show in Augusta, GA. Venable came out unharmed but Berry was suckerpunched and wound up with a broken jaw that had to be wired shut. "He is recovering from what would best be called a mugging," said Lucero manager Thaddeus Rudd, "and is home in Memphis recovering." Here's hoping he's feeling better soon.
As such, the band's Jackson, MS and Huntville, AL shows this weekend have been cancelled, but they are planning to reschedule at a later date. Rudd says Berry plans to rejoin the band for next week's run of shows in Tennessee. "They intend to fulfill next weekend's shows," he said.
