Twisted Sister guitarist Eddie Ojeda is recuperating from emergency back surgery that forced him to miss the band’s concert Wednesday night near Philadelphia.

Ojeda experienced intense pain that prevented him from standing or sitting, went to a hospital and had surgery to repair a ruptured disc, according to bandmate Jay Jay French. Dan McCafferty, who played guitar in singer Dee Snider’s solo band, was pressed into duty as a last-minute replacement at the Keswick Theater.French says Ojeda is feeling better and hopes to perform at the band’s Sunday night concert at New York’s Nokia Theater. If he can’t, McCafferty will fill in there as well.

“Under The Blade,” Twisted Sister’s first hit, was written about Ojeda’s throat surgery in the 1970s.
