DevilDriver Bassist Aaron "Bubble" Patrick Leaves The Hospital Following Near Death Experience - Statement From DEZ FAFARA Available!
As previously reported, DevilDriver bassist Aaron "Bubble" Patrick was hospitalized with pneumonia. After undergoing a series of tests, he was diagnosed with Streptococcus Pneumonia (a very serious condition). As a result, he is not part of the 2012 "Metalliance Tour" with his band DevilDriver. "Bubble's" former Bury Your Dead bandmate Chris Towing, is filling in for "Bubble"!
"Bubble left the hospital today, but needs to get a lot of rest following this terrible illness. Our concern right now is that "Bubble" fully recovers... when he arrived at the hospital the situation was very serious. It was touch and go for a few days. His mom was told that he might not make it. We in DevilDriver need to reassess the entire situation and see how we are going to do things in the future. I was surprised that "Bubble" suffered this illness, he is the fittest member of the band... He doesn't drink, he is straight edge. I think he may have caught the illness on the airplane when we were flying back from Australia. You never know if the person next to you is sick or not. I am very happy that "Bubble" is pulling through!"
We wish "Bubble" a quick and healthy recovery! Please kepe sending him your Metallic vibes!
