Dropkick Murphys' lead singer Ken Casey has given an interview explaining why the band did not perform at this year's NHL Winter Classic.
Also the reason we didnít play is because the NHL asked us to do a duet with the guy from FUN. And that would not have been fun.

Hello Tulsa fans. We have some tough news Ė we have to cancel tonightís show at Cainís Ballroom.

We were left with a driver that has been severely...

I'm very grateful for everything playing with DKM has brought me and I'm sad to be going but I feel like the time has come for me to try working on different styles of music and some of my own projects, I'm ready to spread my wings as they say.

I've been pickin', ticklin', strummin', squeezin', crashin', trashin' and smashin' with the Dropkicks for many years and am proud to have been a part of all the achievements...
