Kix guitarist goes missing, found “not in great condition”

Posted by on March 26, 2017

If you went to see Baltimore ’80s rockers Kix play last night at the Hummel’s Wharf Fire Company in Selinsgrove PA, you might have noticed there was something missing, as the band played the show as a four-piece. TMZ reports that the band went to pick up guitarist Ronnie Younkins, and couldn’t find him. They attempted to call him, but couldn’t get in touch with him. Ultimately, they played the show as a quartet, telling the crowd that Younkins wasn’t able to make the show.

The guitarist has since been found, and while details are vague, he was said to be found “not in great condition.” He apparently has a history of substance abuse, and went to rehab for alcohol in 2015. With specific details unknown, it’s unclear whether the band will continue to play without Younkins, but they have a number of shows lined up, the next being on April 7 at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, CT. Here’s hoping he’s better soon. Below, you can see the band playing last night as a four-piece.
