Possessed vocalist Jeff Becerra walked for the first time in over 30 years thanks to the use of robotic legs. Becerra posted footage of himself walked through the hallway of an undisclosed medical facility to the band's TikTok, mentioning in the hashtags that the robotic legs were thanks to ReWalk Robotics.
Becerra was paralyzed from the chest down in 1989 after being shot twice.
"I've been in a wheelchair longer than I've been walking," said Becerra in a 2019 interview. "It's my normal. It wasn't so much of an accident — I got shot by two different guns in a robbery. I was doing concrete construction. I worked something like 13 hours that day. I stopped to get a pack of Camels [cigarettes] and I guess I flashed a hundred [dollar bill] and on the way out, two guys in hoods, little ninja guys came running up with guns: 'Give me all of your fucking money.' I kind of resisted; I should have just given them the money, but I was fucked, I was cornered.
"It's not the first time I had a gun pointed at me and I knew they meant business. We scuffled, there was no way out of it and I ended up getting shot a couple of times. The first guy pushed a 9-millimeter to my chest [points to bullet hole]. It broke through the ribs and shattered the lungs and stuck on in the spine, so I still have a 9-millimeter slug stuck on the vertebrate T3. I think the second guy was covering me from about 15 feet away, so there was nowhere to run. It was more like a knee-jerk reaction because the first shot was 'pow!' and right after, 'pow!'"
