Machine Gun Kelly’s band needs to find a new drummer for a bit. His usual drummer just had a very bad day, and he’s now laid up in the hospital.

Kelly’s drummer JP Cappelletty, better known as Rook, was just walking down the street in the Hollywood Hills on Tuesday when 2 guys jumped out of a car and robbed him.

Law enforcement tell TMZ that there was a physical altercation and Rook had thousands of dollars worth of property stolen from him. During the melee, Rook was also ran over by a car which injured his foot and arm.

Rook posted a picture of himself and said, “Don’t Worry I’ll Bounce Back.” The culprits got away, and it’s unclear who they are. Right now there are no leads as to who jacked Rook, but it’s good to see he’s doing better.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
