Kix Guitarist Goes Missing, Found ‘Not in Great Condition’
Kix were back in action Saturday night (March 25), missing one key member of their band. According to TMZ, guitarist Ronnie Younkins (far right in band photo above) was nowhere to be found when the band hit the stage, but the musician was later found.
According to the TMZ report, the members of Kix went to pick up Younkins in Maryland for a gig in Pennsylvania at the Hummels Wharf Fire Co. Social Club, but the musician was nowhere to be found, so they went ahead to the venue and played the gig without him. The band reportedly shared the information with the audience, letting them know why they were minus Younkins for the evening.
The report states that they attempted to call Younkins but got no response. With Younkins having a past in rehab due to alcohol abuse, the group was understandably worried. Eventually the guitarist as found on Sunday morning and was reported to be "not in great condition and very upset." Neither the band nor Younkins have shared exactly what happened to the guitarist.
Kix have scattered dates booked through a good portion of 2017, with a pair of April dates on the books and shows currently lined up into October of this year. To stay up to date with their touring, click here.
