Kingdom of Sorrow’s Kirk Windstein to Skip Ozzfest for Rehab, Type O Negative Guitarist to Fill In

Kirk Windstein of Kingdom of Sorrow will sit out the group’s upcoming Ozzfest run to attend rehab. Windstein will be replaced by Kenny Hickey of Type O Negative for the stint.
Windstein comments: “Hey all, Kirk here. Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be taking a much needed break and will not be joining my bros in KOS for Ozzfest. I have entered the AA program and am turning over a new leaf. 25 years of gigging and touring has taken its toll and my drinking is now preventing me from being the healthiest, best player that I can be. It’s been a fun ride, but I’m ready to tackle this sober and look forward to being at the top of my game with all of my projects! I am happy to say that Kenny Hickey will once again be filling my spot for these 8 shows. Thanks Kenny, I love you bro!!! Thanks to everyone for their support.”
