Eyehategod drummer Aaron Hill was walking to the band's gig in Guadalajara, Mexico when he was stabbed with a knife and robbed, according to informador.mx. He was attacked by three men and a woman not too far from the venue that the band was scheduled to play, Forum Independence.
After the stabbing, Hill was left with a two inch wound on his left side. He is said to be doing okay but was unable to perform that night for obvious reasons.
The show promoter, Show No Mercy, noted that they provided a driver to the band to get to the venue safely, but Hill chose to walk because he was already sightseeing and the hotel is close enough to the venue to do so. Here is a rough translation of Show No Mercy's message:
“Today while Aaron Hill walked to the venue he suffered a robbery. They have a driver at their disposal; but they were touring the city all afternoon so he preferred to walk to the venue, for his hotel is very close; when 4 people, 2 Blocks, intercepted and took away their belongings While one of them threatened him and made him a 5 cm wound on the left side. He is well, however it was not possible to continue with the show.
“It should be mentioned that neither forum independence, nor nms, nor Aaron are responsible for this event; for it is not possible that you can not walk safe on the street willing to enjoy your Sunday.
“We appreciate the support of red cross and police Guadalajara for the attentions.
“Enrique Alfaro we hope that this crime will not go unpunished and we can enjoy our city with tranquility.
“During the week we will let you know the refund process.”
