Post Prayers, Love, Strength & Best Wishes to Pat Torpey...
stay strong Pat... Much love to you brother during this difficult time!!!


To our fan's around the world:

Pat Torpey, has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and unfortunately will be unable to perform all of his normal drumming duties on our upcoming World Tour in support of our new album, …The Stories We Could Tell.

From Pat: “I’ve been dealing with Parkinson’s symptoms for the past couple of years and only recently received a confirmed diagnosis as symptoms worsened. I intend to fight the disease with same intensity and tenacity that I drum and live my life by and will continue recording and performing, as always, to the best of my ability."

We intend to announce a drummer in the near future whom will handle most of MR BIG’s drumming duties on the Fall 2014 tour but expect Pat to jump on the drums on suitable live songs as well as participating in the our acoustic set.

Thank you for your unwavering support and we'll see you out there soon!

MR. BIG

So sad news! One of the worst things that can happen to a musician. I have my ticket to MR. BIG show in October and hope to be there to encourage Pat.

Fuck man.

For a drummer, I can hardly think of anything worse than having Parkinson's disease.
