Maybe after the rehab he will smoke massive amounts of weed and make a sleep album like we all want.

His stomach was growing at a rapid pace. He was extremely bloated in recent years. It's for the best, and wish him a speedy recovery.

I thought these stoner metal guys could all handle their alcohol. Sad to be faced with the reality that our bearded beer gods are just as troubled as the rest of us.

FUCK! I just found out about this tour and High on Fire would have sealed the deal for me to go. I still may, but I can't believe Motorhead will share the stage with Asking Alexandria. What's the world coming to? Should be an interesting mix of people at these shows. The old and the young metalheads.

Get Better Matt!

This sucks. Hope Matt gets better soon. Better to recognize a problem and deal with than let it linger and kill you in the end

doesnt he realise that not being heavily under the influence could effect his whole metal being. i mean just ask James Hetfield if rehab was the answer..

Slipknot? What's wrong with slipknot, As I Lay Dying and Slayer? Well the first two bands are....well, just not good and Slayer should be cool as long as they don't play new material the whole time. This sucks about HoF though. Was gonna see them in a club in Pennsylvania in the summer. Oh well, still got the Melvins and Helmet. Will rule
