SLIPKNOT Bassist Discharged From Hospital, Cause Revealed

Phew!

Phew!

Late last night, we reported the startling news that Slipknot bassist Alessandro "Vman" Venturella was rushed to a hospital for undisclosed reasons with the band performing the rest of their set without him.

The band have just posted a new update confirming that Alex is okay and has been discharged from the hospital. He was apparently suffering from "severe dehydration." Here is the band's full statement:

“After a medical emergency during last night’s show, we are relieved to let everyone know that our bass player, Alex ‘V-Man’ Venturella, is well on the road to recovery. Alex collapsed mid-set after feeling unwell and as a precautionary measure was taken to hospital where he was found to be suffering from severe dehydration. After recuperating overnight, he has now been discharged from hospital and is on his way back to his Slipknot family. All being well, Alex will be back onstage with us tomorrow in Mansfield, MA. We thank everyone who reached out with messages and well wishes for Alex and we look forward to be being back at full tilt for the rest of the Summer’s Last Stand tour.”

We're really glad that Alex is going to be okay. Now get that man a bunch of water! Remaining dates of Slipknot's currently tour with Lamb of God can be found here.
