Third Time A Charm For Stabbing Westward Drummer?

Looks like Stabbing Westward is bent on going through more drummers than Spinal Tap.

With regular drummer Andy Kubiszewski sidelined by a broken collarbone, the band recently tapped Johnny Haro as its third touring replacement after two previous enlisted stand-ins were forced to bow out.

Nine Inch Nail's Chris Vrenna headed Westward for three concerts before the in-demand producer, who recently completed Rasputina's new album, had to return to his day job because of a recording obligation.

Killing Joke drummer Geoff Dugmore then agreed to take up the sticks in the band through mid-July, when Kubiszewski was expected to return (see "Stabbing Westward Continues With Vrenna, Dugmore"), but Westward was left drummer-less once more when Dugmore, citing family obligations back in England, withdrew as well.

Haro, who previously played in Star 69, will join Stabbing Westward for the remainder of the band's tour, which arrives in
