Slipknot Member Rushed To The Hospital During Concert

(TeamRock Radio) Slipknot bassist Alex 'Vman' Venturella was rushed to hospital midway through a show in Hartford, Connecticut, on Sunday night. The concert was delayed for 20 minutes after he suffered an unidentified medical crisis, forcing the band to leave the stage.

He was sent off in an ambulance, then the remaining eight members returned to complete their performance. Frontman Corey Taylor told the crowd: "I'm sorry to say that our bass player, Alex - something happened. I'm not sure what happened. He's going to the hospital as we speak. I want you to all make some noise for him - send him some f***ing love."

He continued: "We had a choice to come back out here. We've had to modify some sh*t, but we're going to keep on playing for you. It's what we want. It's what Alex would f***ing want."

The band later posted a video of the crowd chanting Venturella's name. Watch it here.
