[pitchfork.com] Yesterday, Flaming Lips multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd was hospitalized for an as-yet-undisclosed reason, forcing the band to cancel appearances at a pair of festivals, SunFest in West Palm Beach, Florida and Memphis in May in Memphis, Tennessee. Last night, Lips drummer Kliph Scurlock left a Facebook status update that, at the very least, is somewhat reassuring:
"Kliph Scurlock wants everybody to know that Steven will be just fine as soon as he gets some rest. He (and the rest of us) really appreciate your kind thoughts and well wishes, but please don't worry yourselves."
UPDATE: Steven Drozd has Tweeted, "Thank you, everyone, for your concern. I had to do this and I'm getting it together."
