Demon Hunter drummer Timothy “Yogi” Watts’ apartment in Nashville, TN was destroyed yesterday. The fire started in the late afteroon, and while Yogi and his family are safe, his wife Cara is 39 weeks pregnant and due soon.
From a GoFundMe set up for the Yogi and his family:
“Yogi and Cara are expecting their first little girl any day now and came home from a Dr’s visit to find their apartment complex on fire. As of right now they have NOTHING but the clothes on their bodies and NOTHING for Dessi that will be here any day.”
Yogi, who has been a touring drummer with Throwdown, has been with Demonhunter since 2004, playing on the band’s last five studio albums, including last years’ Extremist. Though his home is destroyed, firefighters were able to rescue four of Yogi’s ferrets.
