Skid Row’s Rachel Bolan: I was Rushed to the ER with Appendicitis – 2022

Skid Row: Update from Rachel…

Rachel Bolan:

Hey everyone. I’ve been getting a lot of DMs asking why I wasn’t playing at our recent show of the Live To Rock Tour in Scottsdale, AZ. Welp… last Monday evening I was rushed to the ER with appendicitis and had an appendectomy the next afternoon. Long story short, the surgeon (and a couple of other doctors) said that I could under no circumstances play the show or fly. They were concerned about the 3 incisions as well as the possibility of blood clots on an airplane. Everyone at St. Thomas midtown were incredible. Ascension is the goods. I was in good hands from start to finish. And thankfully @leila_1plus was with me the whole time. I feel incredible and I’m ready to get back at it. I honestly don’t know what hurt worse, the appendicitis or missing a show. Thanks to Robbie Crane for holding down the bottom end in my absence.
