Mastodon's Brent Hinds

Mastodon Discuss The Aftermath Of Brent Hinds’ 2007 Coma In Latest Episode Of “Crack The Skye” Documentary


Part 6 of Mastodon‘s behind the scenes look at the making of their 2009 album “Crack The Skye” has been shared by the band and finds them discussing the aftermath of the altercation that took place back at the 2007 ‘MTV Video Music Awards‘. That night saw the band’s vocalist/guitarist Brent Hinds get into an apparent drunken fight with System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian and musician William Hudson, which police said Hinds instigated.

The injuries Hinds suffered from that left him with brain hemorrhaging, a broken nose and more and left him in a coma for a time with months of recovery to follow. An initial police report on the matter cited Odadjian and Hudson as having both struck Hinds in the fight, though comments made by members of Mastodon and Hinds himself years later downplayed Odadjian‘s involvement, citing Hudson as the individual who threw the devastating punch.
