This is terrible news.........Mastodon is my favorite metal band out there right now. Brent is crazy but he's nuts at guitar.

Yeah, they played Colony Of Birchmen in the Foo Fighters' "suite". You can watch it on mtv.com. Josh Homme played with them too on backing vocals.

"It is rumored that Hinds' injury was sustained during a brutal assault that took place shortly after MASTODON performed "Colony of Birchmen" "

Maybe it was the brutal assault that took place DURING "Colony of Birchmen". He rocked himself right into the hospital.

Couldn't happen to a nicer, more talented guy. I hope he's fine, he's an awesome dude, and his band is one of the most important bands of the decade.
BTW, his name is Brent, not Brett.

Haven't heard their stuff outside of 'Linoleum Knife', from the Aqua Teen movie. But I'm planning on trying to get in to them. Sad that he's in the hospital.
