Slayer's Tom Araya Rushed To The Hospital (No 5 Attacks and Injuries of 11)

Tom Araya's hospitalization in February landed the No 5 spot in our countdown of the top Attacks and Injuries story of 11. Here it is: (Rock News Desk) Slayer frontman Tom Araya was rushed to hospital in Australia on Saturday night after the band's first concert with stand-in guitarist Gary Holt.

The thrash giants decided to leave axeman Jeff Hanneman at home to recover from flesh-eating bug necrotising fasciitis, because they'd already cancelled dozens of shows during 2009 and 2010 due to Araya's back problems.

But they managed just one show of their Australian tour in Brisbane, on the first night of the touring Soundwave festival before Araya required medical attention once again. Festival organisers say Araya contracted a severe ear infection, which they hope will clear up in a few days. It's not known whether the band will be able to appear at the three remaining shows of the tour. more on this story
