Panic! At The Disco Singer Reacts To Losing Member

(TeamRock Radio) Panic! At The Disco drummer Spencer Smith has left the band's current US tour to deal with his drugs problem. He recently admitted he'd been fighting addiction for four years but believed he was on the mend. Now he's dropped off the road to give his issues his full attention.

Frontman Brendon Urie admits: "It's become evident Spencer still needs more time to take care of himself. I can't expect him to be fighting addiction one minute and be fully immersed in a national tour the next.

'The tour will continue without Spencer while he is away getting the help he needs. Thank you all for your support and kind words." Urie says watching his friend's struggles is one of the most difficult things he's ever endured

"I figured if we ever got into drugs or partying, that we would phase out just as quickly," the singer reflects. "And for a while, we seemed to do just that: phase in and out of consciousness without worrying about future consequences." more
