(Classic Rock) Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres is back behind the drumkit after two health emergencies. The 59-year old had his appendix removed after experiencing pain during the band's tour of South America last month. Just a week later he underwent gallbladder surgery.
Rich Scannella, the drummer with Jon Bon Jovi's side project The Kings Of Suburbia, had been standing in – but Torres went back to work on Wednesday night in Fresno, California.
The band released a photo of the drummer in action, saying: "Welcome back Tico 'The Hitman' Torres! After a round of emergency surgeries, Tico came back to the tour tonight and played the full 2hr and 20min set!" more on this story
