Interpol’s Sam Fogarino Recovering From Cervical Spine Surgery

Written by:

Interpol’s Sam Fogarino has revealed that he’s recently undergone cervical spine surgery.

The Philadelphia-born drummer has been with the New York outfit since 2000, when original drummer Greg Drudy left the band.

On social media this morning (10/22), Fogarino wrote: “Hello everyone! I wanted to just give you an update on what’s going on with me. As many of you know I had cervical spine surgery a few weeks ago. Although it was a total success and the doctors predict a full recovery, it will take some time yet before I’m show-ready. In my absence, our good friend and colleague Chris Broome will continue to fill in on drums. He’s amazing and I rest well knowing the beats are in his hands. I miss playing with the band and can’t wait to get back to it soon. I’ll keep you posted with updates as they come. Take care, Sam.”

Over the course of his career, the 55-year-old Fogarino has played with the Holy Terrors, Gus, the Wahoos, Napoleon Solo, the Ton-ups and the Last Night.

He’s also part of  Magnetic Morning, a side project he started with Swervedriver’s Adam Franklin.
