Sucks he's hospitalized, I sympathize, but at the same time he's doing it to himself with the rampant partying/drinking.
What do you know about his rampant partying/drinking? I partied with Austin on many occasions during the Outbreak Tour and never once saw him out of control. The dude loves having a good time but he always stayed classy.
That being said, I hope he gets well soon. This band has had an unfortunate string of health problems lately. Best wishes to both him and Shay.
