It's looking as though the Who's European fans won't be seeing Zak Starkey behind the drums when the band kicks off its European tour next month. Once again Roger Daltrey's solo drummer Scott Devours will be filling in for Starkey, who was forced to sit out six gigs during the band's 2013 North American leg due to a pulled tendon.

The news was broken on the Ludwig drums Facebook page, which posted: "This just in: Ludwig artist Scott Devours will be drumming for The Who on their upcoming UK tour. Congratulations Scott, from the whole Ludwig family."

The Who has yet to make an official announcement regarding who will be handling drum duties for the European leg.
