It’s a true; and there’s video to prove it.
A few years ago, I was in Las Vegas for the MTV Video Music Awards when Brent Hinds of Mastodon ended up in the hospital with a rearranged face.
The story I got from someone who saw the whole thing was that Brent was obnoxiously drunk, and snapping people with his sweat-soaked tee shirt.
Hinds was warned by System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian and a rapper named William Hudson — Shavo’s buddy and compadre in Achozen — to cut the shit. Brent didn’t listen, from what this witness told me, and was cold cocked by Hudson.
Criminal charges were never pressed against Hudson, who ended up knocking Brent to the pavement with the crippling blow. Hinds was hospitalized with brain hemorrhaging, a shattered nose and a pair of black eyes.
Mastodon bassist and vocalist Troy Sanders tells Hysteria Magazine that his band’s friends with the System of a Down dudes, and they have “no qualms.”
Not saying that anyone deserves to be punched in the face like that and end up in the hospital, but they did warn him to stop. That’s probably why the Mastodon dudes have no beef.
If someone tells you to stop fucking with them, you might want to consider stopping the fucking.
Here’s that aforementioned video proof.
