Watch The Ghost Inside’s Andrew Tkaczyk Play Drums For the First Time Since Losing Right Leg

Amazing news to share, as The Ghost Inside drummer Andrew Tkaczyk has returned behind the kit for the first time since losing his right leg.

Back in November 2015, The Ghost Inside were involved in a devastating crash which left their bus driver and the driver of a tractor trailer dead. The band members suffered major injuries, with two musicians needing amputations due to the extent of their injuries.

Tkaczyk has been diligently working to stand and walk again with the help of a prosthetic leg, but the ultimate goal is to once again perform on the drums with The Ghost Inside. Thanks to the help of one of Tkaczyk’s doctors in particular — a drummer himself — Tkaczyk’s future behind the kit is looking promising.

Tkaczyk shared footage of himself playing drums for the first time since November via Instagram. Watch above.

The Ghost Inside is the first official act to be confirmed for the 2017 Warped Tour, and we all await the triumphant return of a band which is fighting diligently to continue doing what they love. Here’s to the continued recovery of The Ghost Inside!

A GoFundMe page was started for the band members not long after the accident, giving fans a chance to help them out with their significant medical bills and expenses. The initial $150,000 goal has been met, but you can still donate at this location. In addition, the band’s label, Epitaph Records, has been giving 100 percent of the profits from sales of the group’s albums directly to the band.
