Vein.fm drummer Matt Wood breaks wrist, requires immediate surgery or may never drum again

Vein drummer Matt Wood could use some financial assistance right now.

Earlier this month while on tour, Vein.fm drummer Matt Wood suffered a broken wrist, which was partially treated with the recommendation that he consult an orthopedist. Wood has since done so, but the news isn't great. He apparently needs "surgery immediately if he ever wants to be able to drum again."

Compounding the problem is Wood's lack of health insurance. At a minimum, surgical repair will cost $15,000, with additional expenses likely, all while Wood is unable to perform his primary occupation. As such, a GoFundMe campaign has been created on his behalf.

The following information was provided with the fundraising campaign:

"Two weeks ago while on tour with Touché Amore, Vein was on their way to Canada when Matt had an accident causing him to break his left wrist badly. He went to the ER where they put him in a splint for the time being but was told he would need to see an orthopedist ASAP. Matt was evaluated by an orthopedist this week who told us that he has a distal radius intra articular three part displaced fracture and he would need surgery immediately if he ever wants to be able to drum again. Matt currently does not have health insurance and these types of surgeries are already extremely expensive even with insurance. Right now we've been given a cost estimate of 15,000 dollars but still do not know for sure what the grand total will be. We've come up with some money ourselves but Matt has a long healing journey ahead of him. He'll at least have 2 months to recover once surgery is done with many follow up visits and will most likely need physical therapy. Matt has dedicated his whole life to drumming and gives everything to every band he's involved in. Matt is devastated by this news and is eager to get this surgery done as soon as possible so he can begin to recover and get back to what he loves most. Please consider donating or sharing, anything helps. Thank you everyone for your support."

Ghost inside and Def Leppard would have signed up for their free obamacare. Dude was too lazy to fill out a form for free Healthcare.

Get a job you lazy f*ck. Your shit band playing shit music isn't going to pay the bills. Grow the f*ck up. Nobody support this.

anonymous 4/21/2022 10:22:55 AM

"Matt was evaluated by an orthopedist this week who told us that he has a distal radius intra articular three part displaced fracture and he would need surgery immediately if he ever wants to be able to drum again." ^^^ Guarantee you he's more concerned about not being able to jerk it again.

anonymous 4/21/2022 11:35:04 AM

Think of this story when all you idiots love to brag about how great health care is in America.

anonymous 4/21/2022 12:31:07 PM

Dude who is living out his dreams does dumb shit. People not living out their dreams so they can have insurance should pay for him to live out his dreams and do more dumb shit?

anonymous 4/21/2022 12:58:50 PM

Even if he did have Obamacare this is considered an elective surgery and wouldn't be covered you f*cking dolts.

anonymous 4/21/2022 12:59:40 PM

even when I was like 21 making 7.50/hour I had health insurance for like 120/month come on dood

anonymous 4/21/2022 12:59:57 PM

"Dude who is living out his dreams does dumb shit. People not living out their dreams so they can have insurance should pay for him to live out his dreams and do more dumb shit?" Nobody is demanding anybody donate. Weird thing to get gripe about. With that said, this band is ass and the drummer should move sheet rock for a living.

anonymous 4/21/2022 1:08:23 PM

Didn't he break his wrist or something similar when they toured with HW also? This guy is glass lol

anonymous 4/21/2022 1:56:21 PM

Sucks to break your shit and there's nothing wrong with friends and fans showing support, but at some point you have to take responsibility.

anonymous 4/21/2022 2:04:55 PM

they already raised 10k lol

anonymous 4/21/2022 2:37:44 PM

anonymous 1 hour ago Even if he did have Obamacare this is considered an elective surgery and wouldn't be covered you f*cking dolts. Repairing a broken bone is elective? WTF

anonymous 1 hour ago they already raised 10k lol Would have raised 20k by now if Errorzone was still the last thing they released.

anonymous 4/21/2022 3:44:57 PM

Is he vaccinated?

anonymous 4/21/2022 3:54:52 PM

He is vaccinated that is why his bones were too weak. the vax weakens bone mass

anonymous 4/21/2022 4:37:48 PM

Drink some milk dingus

anonymous 4/21/2022 4:49:13 PM

BUT DOES HE STAND WITH UKRAINE?

anonymous 4/21/2022 6:07:13 PM

Why have health insurance when you have enough suckers willing to pay for it? Yo our van with everything in it none of us was in got stolen - KACHING! Yo I got hit by a car I need money to live on before I get my insurance claim - KACHING! Yo I broke my wrist but won't say how cuz it's such a secret why? KACHING!

anonymous 4/21/2022 6:45:59 PM

What hardcore vocalist idiot recently allowed a neighbor to give his elderly dog a hambone with ham on it which broke so much bone shards got in the dog's guts & is now asking 8K for the vital surgery needed for the dog due to HIS neglience? And this POS has raised as almost 6K. I mean I'm surprised more well known hardcore bands & people don't just post GoFundMes for made up s hit & why not? Yo our bassist got jumped & he's gonna be out of work for awhile, give him (us) 20K...DONE. Throw on some makeup.

anonymous 4/21/2022 7:58:30 PM

yo Last.fm is suing us for taking part of their dumb name. donate to our gofundme. KACHING

rick_tocchet 4/22/2022 5:40:43 AM

This is what happens when fake, woke, Bill Gates meat is the only thing ingested into your human body for a few years. Wait until people start actually growing vaginas from the fake food they are eating. Ooohhhhhh save the cows. Yeah, you cant even save yourself.

anonymous 4/22/2022 6:30:12 AM

anonymous 17 hours ago Dude who is living out his dreams does dumb shit. People not living out their dreams so they can have insurance should pay for him to live out his dreams and do more dumb shit? They didn't say what he did to break his wrist. This could be a really good point.

anonymous 4/22/2022 6:42:05 AM

Wait people are giving this guy money? "May never drum again" for a broken wrist? Give me a break. I'm sure this dude would love an excuse to lay around and watch shitty anime cartoons every day and not get a job to pay for his own shit so keep donating you dummy's.

anonymous 4/22/2022 6:48:28 AM

wow, ok. masturbation jokes = ban. anti-vax bullshit = no ban. even these dudes are getting brainwashed by fox news?

anonymous 4/22/2022 8:01:10 AM

Windbreakers are not stoked

anonymous 4/22/2022 1:41:07 PM

Dedicates life to occupation that doesn't pay any money.....?

anonymous 4/22/2022 9:16:25 PM

Rick Allen drums with one hand and is in a much better band.

anonymous 4/23/2022 6:20:02 AM

Get a f*cking job you loser. Playing drums in a shitty trendy rip off metalcore band isn't a career. This should serve as wake up call to get your priorities straight.

anonymous 4/24/2022 8:33:56 AM

It's okay, Rick will die soon.
