Fall Out Boy Star Missing Show Following Mother's Death


. (TeamRock Radio) Fall Out Boy guitarist Joe Trohman will miss the band's show in London on Wednesday after the death of his mother. Trohman did not travel with the band to the UK, where tonight they will play at London's Islington Assembly Hall. Trohman's guitar tech Josh Newton will fill in.

Trohman's mother passed away in a hospice in the US where she was being treated for a rare, incurable brain tumour known as glioblastoma multiforme. The guitarist says in a statement: "I can't express the sorrow and heartache I am currently feeling. For now I have to be with my family and help everyone cope. Hopefully everyone reading this understands and holds no ill will towards me for making this decision.

"In the mean time the show must go on. My dear friend, bandmate (from non-FOB projects) and guitar tech (i.e. guy who makes my gear work and keeps me looking/sounding good) Josh Newton will be more than filling in my shoes. He'll help keep the guys company until I make my return." Read more here.
