Every Time I Die sued by fan alleging toe amputation result of show injury
Every Time I Die have found themselves in quite the unusual lawsuit — one fan is suing the band for having to have their toe amputated.
The fans says the band kicked a monitor off stage at a show, which fell on their toe which later had to be amputated.
ETID frontman Keith Buckley spoke to Kerrang! About the whole ordeal, which he is pretty upset about. He was asked about any “wild” show stories, to which he answered with the lawsuit.
“One, it never fucking happened. Two, how long are you responsible for a hurt toe? Like, even if the thing fell on her toe — which it absolutely didn’t — and she hurt her toe, but she didn’t clean it, she didn’t take care of it, she didn’t set it, and then it had to get amputated, like how long are we babysitting this fucking toe? I’m so pissed off when I think about that. That’s what’s currently on the top of my list,” Buckley said.
He went on to say he believes it is the woman’s big toe, but he didn’t want to verify.
“They tried to show us pictures, and I’m like, ‘I’m not fucking looking at these pictures.’ It didn’t happen. It’s not my responsibility. I’m not responsible for that fucking toe,” he said. “It’d be like if I broke my arm when I was in fucking seventh grade playing baseball. If my arm hurts, I’m not going to fucking call my coach and be like, ‘Dude, come on, man. Help me out here.’ He’s not responsible for that anymore.”
Sounds like quite a dispute, so we’ll wait to see how it plays out.

The band recently took to Twitter to share a clip of one of their three bowling championship trophies they won in their time on the tour.
Bowling has been a tradition on Warped Tour for a long time. The touring fest even used to host a charity tournament where people could bid to go bowling with their favorite band.“In honor of the @VansWarpedTour 25th Anniversary kick off today, here’s one of our most proud moments of our run with them on display at the @rockhall right now. One of the 3 bowling champ trophy’s we own. Special shoutout to our boy @JuiceMenendez for helping us raise this!”
Also, ahead of their current tour, the band shared a video on Instagram of Rick from Pawn Stars giving them his best wishes.
Rick mislabeled the band as punk but jokingly admits he hasn’t checked out new music since the ’80s.
“I hear you guys are punk, I love punk rock. Back in the day I even saw the Dead Kennedys. So hey guys, good for you. Keep on going, I know what it’s like to run a business.”
The famed pawn shop owner made the video through the personalized shoutout service Cameo. The service allows people to pay various celebrities to send videos of them giving personal clips of their praise.
