The Ghost Inside's Zach Johnson Endured 26 Hours Of Surgery

(TeamRock Radio) The Ghost Inside guitarist Zach Johnson says he's been through 26 hours of surgery in the wake of last month's fatal tour bus crash. The band's driver Greg Hoke died in the road accident in El Paso, Texas, along with the driver of the other vehicle involved, Steven Cunningham. Johnson, drummer Andrew Tkaczykt and frontman Jonathan Vigil were airlifted to hospital and later were said to be in critical condition.

Now Johnson has spoken for the first time about his injuries and treatment, saying he potentially still faces more surgery. In a Twitter post, he says: "I've had about 26 hours of surgery fixing my feet, legs and hip and might have another to go.

"I can't say how much all the support from my friends, family and strangers around the world has been. It means more to me than you will ever know. I've never been happier to be breathing. All the love."

Johnson adds that he won't go into detail about his bandmates' conditions, saying it's up to them to decide whether they want to make their own statements.

The Ghost Inside this week issued a collective statement, saying some of the injured parties face months of rehabilitation and that they've put all of their touring commitments on hold. Read more and see his full post here.
