His friends have set up a fundraiser to help Miles and his family with all the hospital costs, because Miles, a father of two, plays drums for his livelihood and is not able to do that now. It’s too early to tell if his injuries will have a lifelong impact on his ability to play drums. It’s unknown whether or not Miles will be joining Paramore on the upcoming tour.
