Local H’s Scott Lucas issued the following update to his fans and supporters via the band’s Facebook following the Lucas’ heinous mugging in Russia:
“We just want to say thanks for all the good wishes and generally excellent things you’ve all been posting. I, for one, have been bowled over by the reaction. And in that spirit we’d like to announce that this Saturday’s show in Rosemont, IL – as well as the entire west coast leg of the tour – is definitely ON!
Had some good news today : I saw my third doctor and the possibility of surgery has finally been ruled out. My vocal cords are definitely not disjointed and the medication I’ve been taking seems to be doing the trick. When they forced the last camera I ever want down my nose today – I could see how much better (and how much stronger) everything looked than it did last week. It was gross, but it was a major relief. It’s been a very frustrating month, but last week was pretty fucking scary. I had a lot of help – and you all know who you are. Not to sound like a drama king, but I also really want to thank my doctors and MusiCares over at the Grammys – they’re the bee’s knees, goddammit (I think it’s safe to assume THAT will be the last time I make a Grammys acceptance speech).
And, once again – thanks to all of you. We asked for your patience and support – and what we got was so much more. Thanks for all the messages. Thanks for the concern. And thanks for the inspiration. I’ll never forget it.
So let’s go. I’m not suggesting that I’m completely out of the woods – and I’ll be continuing the medication and doing everything I can to make my voice stronger. All I’m suggesting is, “Let’s ROCK!”……..cautiously – but we WILL see you out there.”
