The Ghost Inside Go From Strength To Strength; Drummer Stands Following Leg Amputation

Despite going through absolute hell these past few months, The Ghost Inside have remained an incredible inspiration for all who’ve witnessed their journey to recovery.

In November of last year, the California metalcore unit were involved in a serious accident when their tour bus collided with a semi-trailer. In the time since, the band have been updating fans with the (to be honest, quite harrowing) details of their recovery.

Frontman Jonathan Vigil has shared videos to social media of himself learning to walk again following the incident, while guitarist Zach Johnson has shared rather graphic images of his foot after having two toes amputated.

Back in February, drummer Andrew Tkaczyk told fans that he had entered the Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital after initially waking from a 10-day coma to an amputated leg. In a feat of strength, he vowed to keep playing music, despite the arduous road ahead. Recently Tkaczyk shared a video to Instagram demonstrating his progress, as he stands on his remaining leg to “strengthen that ankle and calf muscles”. On top of losing a leg, Tkaczyk also sustained rib and hip fractures, as well as spinal damage and a head injury.

What absolute troopers. The medical bills the guys are facing are undoubtedly immense, so if you can spare any coin at all to help them recover, you can do so over here at their Gofundme page.

Watch a short video of Andrew Tkaczyk’s progress below.

Strengthening that ankle and calf muscles. One day at a time. Be strong. #violentgentlemen #workhard
