Eyehategod Drummer Aaron Hill Robbed And Knifed While On Tour In Mexico


According to local media reports, Eyehategod drummer Aaron Hill was robbed and apparently stabbed/slashed in his left side while the band were on tour in Guadalajara, Mexico last night. The band’s show was cancelled as result, though Hill is said to be doing OK despite the apparent 5cm wound he sustained. The show’s promoter Show No Mercy commented on the matter (originally posted in Spanish):

“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.”
