does Richie know? and if does, does he care? did he call Jon or somebody and asked what happened? did or will he visit Tico and fix things with band or will he just act like after 30 years they don't know each other??:'(<3

Poor Tico - hope he makes a full recovery. Not easy on Jon now to make a decision for you can be sure it will be a case of "damned if he does and danmed if he doesnt" Only Jon can judge what the best decision can be and we should trust him for that - he's done ok up to now.

If they have back up musicians as was suggested Tico may tell Jon to do the shows without him so they don't have to extend the tour to do make up shows. They're supposed to finish in Australia on December 17th. The guys may already have things lined up in the new year based on the idea that the tour would be done.

I don't want to come across as diminishing Tico's role, but he doesn't contribute vocally. If someone can play the drums note for note, then there's no difference in the sound. If Tico's cool with it, they should do the shows....but after all the Richie drama, it should be made very clear that it's Tico's wish for the shows to be done (to avoid any backlash).

He just tweeted this message a few minutes ago.

All my love, prayers and heart goes out to my brother Tico. He is an amazing man, a true warrior, great artist and underestimated musician.

I'm not saying that Tico didn't have an appendectomy but am I the only one here that is totally blown away at what a coincidence the timing on this is?

These next few days are going to be very interesting. An announcement will have to be made soon on the future of this tour.

No your not. Most will not admit it.

Phil tweeted about going to Mexico so it's not like they were down a guitarist and had to come up with an excuse. I'd say the appendectomy is legit. Timing just sucked.

Emergency surgeries are not scheduled. Or based around a tour.

I don't understand why anyone would question this. I'm obviously missing something here!

I was thinking that Tico may not be back for September shows. In my opinion he needs recoup time since he is a drummer a lot of muscles are use. He moves and stretches to reach those drum heads. If he was smart he would sit out September. Though it depends when it happened. If it was a few weeks ago they may be able to salvage part of the month. If it was the day BJM notified patrons of the postponement it could be much longer.....

I'm not talking about them covering up for being down a guitarist, I'm talking about what coincidental timing this is of yet another original member not being there (last minute) for the start of a leg.

So, what exactly do you think is the reason? You obviously think there is some great conspiracy here so what is it?

And he was there on Mexico. Had even done a soundcheck from what I have read.

Maybe it's a sign Jon should hang up his mic

Unlike Richie, Tico dosen't have an inflated ego and would be the last person to let Jon and more importantly the fans down.

Believe me, I'm hoping the reason is that Tico HAS had surgery but I cannot ignore the fact that again, very last minute, another original band member has not made it to a new leg of the tour.

I think he'll be out longer than a week. I have a friend who had her appendix removed this summer & her doctor told her it'd be 2 weeks before she''d be 100% & it was about that although she was able to get around.

Being that Tico has a very strenuous job I would guess he'll be MIA for awhile.

I hope it's a week though. Just so he recovers! All the other can wait.
