You can't not love Darkbuster. It just isn't allowed. So our hearts go out to LennyLashley's middle finger, which has definitely gotten more usage over the years than your average digit. On the upside, maybe now they can cover that Konks song "29 Fingers" (uh, 39 fingers? 49?). Which, in hindsight, makes Brett's article pretty creepily prophetic. What, exactly, are we talking about?

From Darkbuster manager Kevin Patey:

"Not sure if you heard the news but Lenny had a very serious accident last week. Was doing some staging work on the side and a scissor list collapsed on his left (guitar playing) hand... Seriously damaged a couple fingers and he's going to more than likely have this 3rd finger amputated. It's a hell of a kick in the pants but he's keeping a positive outlook on things and we're going to be auditioning guitar players to fill in until he can play guitar again in some kind of way... We're holding a benefit June 26th at the middle east, not sure if you have any plans to be around but figured I'd give you a heads up! Bottom line is that despite this being a set-back, we're forging ahead and will be still hitting all the Warped Tour dates this summer and will probably be going full-time even sooner than planned as Lenny can't do any other kind of work for the time being."

S.R., longtime Darkbuster loyalist: "You can pretty much still play Darkbuster songs
with nine fingers, right? Hell, if Tony Iommi can do it..."

Updates on the benefit will be posted as they arrive. In the meantime:
