Texas death metallers Rigor Mortis have issued the following statement about guitarist Mike Scaccia undergoing emergency neck surgery:
"Rigor Mortis guitarist Mike Scaccia will have emergency neck surgery this Monday morning at 6AM. Scaccia has been having problems with severe pains in his arms in recent years. It appeared it was always from medical conditions such as tendonitis from the many years of playing the intense and fast style of music that he plays. But a few days after his performance in Germany at “Keep It True 12” last weekend, Scaccia noticed his left arm went totally numb. So he went in to see his chiropractor, who noticed something seriously wrong in Scaccia’s neck. So he sent him for an immediate MRI. The results showed that Scaccia has a Cervical Herniated Disc in his lower neck and they told him that he could easily become paralyzed without immediate surgery.
"All of us in Rigor Mortis are hopeful that Mike will have a successful surgery and that he will be back playing his guitar very soon. The doctors have assured Mike that this surgery will make him a 10-times better guitar player. We will give an update sometime next week on how Mike is recovering. If you want to wish Mike luck with his surgery, he will be checking our Rigor Mortis Myspace page when he can. So feel free to leave him a message here."
