During a show in Hartford, Connecticut yesterday (August 2nd), Slipknot bass player Alex Venturella was rushed to hospital with a mystery illness:
The cause of the bassists bad health is yet to be disclosed, and the band were able to continue with their set after a twenty minute break, with frontman Corey Taylor explaining; ‘I’m sorry to say that our bass player, Alex, had… something happened. I’m not sure what happened. He’s been put into an ambulance and he’s going to the hospital right now as we speak. But I want you all to make fucking noise for him. Send him some fucking love. Now, we had a choice to come back out here. We’ve had to modify some shit, but we’re gonna keep on playing for you. It’s what we want, it’s what Alex would fucking want’.
We will have more on the situation s it arises.
