Lonestar Drummer Undergoes Surgery

Lonestar drummer Keech Rainwater is recuperating at home following surgery to remove his gallbladder. The surgery was performed earlier this week following an acute case of gallstones. Rainwater planned the surgery while the band was off the road. He expects to be recovered in time for rehearsals for the band’s Acoustic on the Front Porch tour set that kicks off Oct. 23 in Columbus, Ohio. Additional tour dates have been added, including El Paso, Texas (Nov. 7), Lubbock, Texas (Nov. 9), Lowell, Mass. (Nov. 16) and Cleveland (Nov. 28). 10/08/03
