String Cheese Incident’s Bill Nershi Offers Health Update Ahead Of LOCKN’

first_imgOn Sunday, String Cheese Incident was slated to perform at the historic Oregon Eclipse Festival in Prineville, Oregon. Unfortunately, the band had to perform without guitarist Bill Nershi, who was unable to join the rest of the group in Oregon due to illness. A String Cheese Incident show sans Nershi is no doubt bizarre, but the Colorado-born band went on with their set, which also saw a sit-in by Emancipator violinist Ilya Goldberg. However, since Sunday, fans have been left wondering about Billy’s health, and the guitarist just offered a health update via his Facebook page. You can read Nershi’s comments below. We’re glad you’re okay, Billy!Hi everyone,Okay, here’s the skinny. I had benign positional vertigo (BPV). Crystals in a cavity in my inner ear had dislodged themselves somehow, causing the sensation that things were moving when they weren’t. I went to a hearing specialist that used a technique of having me lay back and move my head from side to side and use this vibrating thing against my head to get the crystals to gravitate back into the proper cavity. He said there is now absolutely no danger in flying. I am good to go!!!! See ya at Lockn’ this weekend!Thanks everyone for your concern and good vibes,Billylast_img
