Fuel's drummer Kevin Miller suffered an injury a couple weeks ago when the band performed in Panama City, Fla. Miller told Launch.com that he "blew a rib out" shy after playing the first five songs of the show. After being rushed to an ambulance, doctors put EKGs and IVs on his arm, thinking Miller had suffered a heart attack because of his difficulty to breathe. "I was so mad," Miller said. "I was like, 'God, if you kill me here and not wait until I'm in front of 25,00 people in heaven, I'll be really pissed off. And you'll send me to hell in no time because I'll be causing a whole bunch of ruckus in heaven." Miller is now doing well, after several sessions with a chiropractor. Fuel will open for Aerosmith on its Just Push Play summer tour, starting June 2 in Mansfield, Mass.
