Congratulations from the whole Neon Lights team to Dregen: The former guitarist of The Hellacopters and current guitarist of Backyard Babies and the Michael Monroe Band has become a father! It's the first child of him and his wife Pernilla Andersson.
Due to Dregen's joy of fatherhood, the Michael Monroe Band decided to cancel their planned gig at the "Eurosonic Noorderslag" in the Netherlands which takes place this week: "We are deeply sorry that we have to cancel our performance at Eurosonic this year. We were very much looking forward to it! But our reason for cancellation is more than positive. Mini Dregen is on his way to this world a bit earlier than planned and Papa Dregen has the most important job in the world, to welcome a mini version of him and show him his first moves! Always ahead of time like his dad! Everything is well in Stocklahoma and hopefully we'll see you on tour in Holland very soon again with double D's kicking some major ass!!"
