Offering irrefutable proof that nothing good can come from MTV at this point, Mastodon’s Brent Hinds is currently in the hospital thanks to extensive head trauma that occured some time after the Video Music Awards on Sunday night:

“MASTODON guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds suffered a severe head injury after his performance on Sunday night’s [September 9] MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas. He is being treated by a Las Vegas hospital where he remains hospitalized.”

It is rumored that Hinds’ injury was sustained during a brutal assault that took place shortly after MASTODON performed “Colony of Birchmen” at the Palms Casino Fantasy Suites in Las Vegas. However, it should be noted that this information has not yet been corroborated by an official source.

Meanwhile Brandon Urie and Boys Like Girls are still walking around. Jesus, that’s nice and vaguely ominous isn’t it? “A brutal assault.” Whatever the cause turns out to be, I hope Mr. Hinds is on the mend soon. And for chrissakes everyone, stay away from MTV from now on.
