MASTODON's Brent Hinds Reveals He Was Victim of Hit & Run Earlier This Year, Shares Intense Photos
When Mastodon won their GRAMMY for Best Metal Performance, guitarist Brent Hinds was notably absent from accepting the award. At the time, we joked it was because he got kicked out a few years prior, but turns out the real reason was no laughing matter.
In an Instagram post plugging the Ben Winston film Hell Bound, for which Hinds contributed some riffs to the score, Hinds revealed he and his motorcycle were the victims of a hit and run that resulted in him being in the hospital during the GRAMMY telecast:
“Go see this movie..!!! I was lucky enough to live through playing a Lil bit a guitar on the sound track on January 23, 2018 and that’s why I couldn’t attend the Grammy’s (because I was involved in a hit and run on my motorcycle that ended me up in pistola)..that i got absolutely NO shout out from my best friends/band mates ..I know they love me and just be havin stupid nervousness,but still !
