Adrenaline Mob Tour Manager Has Burns on 62% of Body Following Crash
Adrenaline Mob tour manager Janet Rains (more commonly known as Jane Train), one of three members of the band’s traveling party left in critical condition after the RV crash that took the life of bassist David Zablidowsky, remains in a hospital in Gainesville, FL with second and third-degree burns covering 62% of her body. She was placed on a ventilator because of all the smoke she inhaled.
The Standard Speaker of Hazleton, PA also reports that Dale Campiglia and Jason McCole — the two other people traveling with the band who were listed as being in critical condition following the crash — remain hospitalized with back injuries, per Adrenaline Mob’s manager Larry Mazer.
Mazer added that the injuries no longer appear to be life-threatening. While that’s a relief, the prospect of recovering from such extensive burn damage — and the possible of permanent cosmetic impact — is incredibly daunting. And there are certainly any number of long-term complications that can arise from back injuries, but there’s no need to think about the worst just yet.
The Citizens’ Voice reports that Alan K. Stout, a music columnist from the Scranton / Wilkes-Barre, PA area where Rains is from, is reactivating a long-dormant “Concert for a Cause” series to help raise funds to cover medical expenses for Rains and the other victims of the crash. “A Benefit for the Adrenaline Mob Accident Victims” will take place on October 12th at the Woodlands in Wilkes-Barre, the same venue where Rains’ ’80s cover band M80 used to play a weekly gig. M80, Flaxy Morgan, Gentleman East, Plus 3, Iron Cowboy, Three Imaginary Boys and several others are scheduled to play.
A GoFundMe for Rains has also been launched.
Let’s just continue to wish Rains, Campiglia and McCole all the best.
