Drummer down! Apparently, John Otto’s sickness has caused Limp Bizkit’s reunion tour to be put on hold as he is hospitalized with pneumonia. Be sure to check out pictures and videos below!

According to reports, TMZ says that Fred Durst’s band reportedly cancelled their show tonight following a bout of pneumonia landing Limp Bizkit’s drummer in an Oslo, Norway hospital. It is said that he has been “diagnosed with pneumonia and is undergoing tests to determine how serious it is.”

Limp Bizkit was supposed to perform on stage at Oslo’s Sentrum Scene, however, John was down with the sickness which lead to their cancellation.

Right now, there are no available details on the drummer’s condition.

The band has been working on their upcoming album called Gold Cobra and this is what Limp Bizkit’s lead man had to say:

“I think that, in a nutshell, we came in staying true to ourselves and doing what we do. … We make heavy music that has rapping in it. We’re a rap-core band. Through the years, it felt natural to try and explore and grow beyond that, and inevitably, it led us in different directions. And what our coming back together represents is us having figured out that, you know, evolution is great, but we need to do what we do. And this new album, this is what we do. The evolution has brought us full-circle. We’re LIMP BIZKIT. And if you didn’t like it before, you’re not going to like it now. If you don’t want to hear a band that plays super-heavy grooves, with an MC rapping over it, then you shouldn’t listen to LIMP BIZKIT.”

There is no set release date, but as a big fan, I look forward to hearing what they’ve got! You may leave your well wishes for John Otto who is being hospitalized for pneumonia in the comment box. Also, see more photos and a video clip of his mad drumming skills below.
