The Ghost Inside Drummer Posts Video of Himself Standing On One Foot


It’s been a long and steady road to recovery for The Ghost Inside. In November, the band was involved in a terrible bus crash that left all the members extremely injured, specifically costing drummer Andrew Tkaczyk a leg.

The band members have been checking in from the hospital periodically via social media, updating fans on their progress and showing the grisly but honest aftermath of this kind of accident.

Today, Tkaczyk posted the following video on his Instagram, which shows him standing on one foot. You know, his only foot.

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

…fuck, man.

Look, I’m not a fan of The Ghost Inside, and won’t pretend to be, but Christ, their story is so inspiring. If something like this happened to me, I’d go full hermit and disappear from the world. Instead, these guys are both doing their best to recovery and being open with their fans about what that means. It grabs you by the heart. Kudos to these dudes for being this strong.

There’s a long road ahead for the band, though, and their GoFundMe campaign appears to still be open, so if you can, please give to these dudes. Meanwhile, everyone at MetalSucks wishes Tkaczyk and his bandmates good luck and speedy recovery.
