"Mike Derks, who has been the personal slave to GWAR's Balsac the Jaws o' Death for 30 years, has been diagnosed with Myelofibrosis. The disease is a serious bone marrow disorder that disrupts blood cell production. Derks has stated that while he has serious treatment ahead of him, he will continue to tour with GWAR, in part, to get himself as physical healthy as possible. Derks will be stopping at various clinics during the tour for treatment. See Derks' statement below."

I'm staring to think this band is cursed.
