Former RIGOR MORTIS vocalist Doyle Bright (photo) (1989's "Freaks" EP and 1991's "Rigor Mortis vs. The Earth") sent Blabbermouth the following message:

"I have been diagnosed with a brain tumor the size of a golf ball. The medication used to try and shrink it has driven my testosterone level to over 1000+... normal is around 500 (anybody wanna form a 'Fight Club'?).

"The rumor mill is churning since the RIGOR MORTIS reunion tour has started, so I wanted to let you guys know the story.

"It is treatable, and 99% chance benign! The tumor was discovered after an MRI in prep for repairing my so-many-times broken nose. Those damn rowdy fans!

"The doctors are trying to shrink it with meds, but it may have to be removed after December 3rd if this round produces no results. They mentioned a miter saw & ice pick combo... or maybe even sending a tiny atom bomb in there to explode it. The specialists have determined that only I could take such a thing ;)

"I've been invited by my bros in RIGOR MORTIS to sing a few songs (about warm cuddly stuffed animals, and teddy bears) with them in Atlanta on November 8th. And I will be doing so.

"After I kick the brain tumor's ass, my band 2PRONGEDCROWN will be active in 2006.

"People can reach me at: db@2prongedcrown.com, or find me on MySpace.com.

"Extremely high testosterone level + Xanax + violent music... I am the perfect storm... and I will return!"
