Mastodon Guitarist/Vocalist Suffers Head Injury
MASTODON guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds suffered a severe head injury after his performance on Sunday night's [September 9] MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas. He is being treated by a Las Vegas hospital where he remains hospitalized.
It is rumoured that Hinds' injury was sustained during a brutal assault that took place shortly after MASTODON performed "Colony of Birchmen" at the Palms Casino Fantasy Suites in Las Vegas. However, it should be noted that this information has not yet been corroborated by an official source. He remains under physicians' care in a Las Vegas hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
MTV News reports that Hinds' nose was also broken, and he sustained two black eyes, according to the band's manager, Nick John. Although John did not provide details about what led to Hinds' injuries, he said they occurred at around 3 a.m. Monday morning, after the band had finished one of the highest-profile performances of its career — a guest spot in the FOO FIGHTERS' suite during Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. MASTODON performed its single "Colony of Birchmen" with QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE frontman Josh Homme; the song appears on the band's 2006 LP, "Blood Mountain".
"Thankfully, it seems he's going to [make a full recovery]," said John. "All I know is he had a bad head injury, broken nose and blacked-out eyes. He doesn't recall much."
Several unsubstantiated rumors circulating around the web claim that Hinds was attacked shortly after the band's MTV Video Music Awards performance.
