Machine Head Frontman Hit By Cab

Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn was hospitalized on Friday (December 14th) after being hit by a New York City cab and had strong words onstage later that night for All That Remains, accusing them of not covering for his band while he received medical treatment.

Flynn, who underwent emergency hernia surgery last month, spent four hours in a hospital following the accident where he was hit by the cab in his groin area, according to Loudwire.

After leaving the hospital, Flynn rushed to the Roseland Ballroom for his band's set at the New York City stop on their tour with Dethklok, All That Remains and the Black Dahlia Murder. During the set Flynn told fans that All That Remains refused to switch set times with his band.

Loudwire published the following transcription from a video of Flynn's speech to fans: "About two days ago we played and the All That Remains guys asked us to flip-flop with them because their singer got stuck in traffic. And you know, we've been flip-flopping this whole tour so we were like, "Yeah, man, you know what? It's no big deal, we'll flip flop." Because that's what you do, you look out for your brothers, right?

"And today, I got hit by a cab, right where I had surgery four weeks ago, in my nuts. I got clipped in a hit and run. I spent the last four hours in the f—ing hospital and unfortunately I had to f—in' rush back here — and actually, it is fortunate, because I'm very happy to be standing on this stage — but I had to f**king rush back here because nobody could f—ing switch, man, nobody could flip-flop, because that's just how it is, I guess. That's how it is when you look out for your brothers some of the time.

"This tour, I'll tell you what, this tour has been so f—ing insane for us, man, we've had so many crazy things, and even things that affected you people: Hurricane Sandy. We've had surgeries, we got banned by f—ing Disney, all this f—ing bulls–t and you know what? Nothing is gonna f—ing stop us, nothing is gonna f—ing stop us, because we live to do this. We're so f—ing honored, we're so f—ing proud to be able to do this for you." Watch video footage here and read All That Remains singer's response.
