Machine Head Frontman Posts Surgery Update Videos

Two days ago Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn (pictured left) had surgery associated with pain of a double inguinal hernia.

The emergency surgery caused the band to drop off a few dates on their current tour with Dethklok, All That Remains, and The Black Dahlia Murder.

Flynn had originally planned to continue to play through the pain and fix his problem in January once the tour was completed, but it was too painful for him to continue playing.

He said, “I’ve been toughing out an inguinal hernia below my waistline since June of last year…Unfortunately, after the last few shows, my guts have been very swollen and hard to push back in. Yesterday, the pain was excruciating and I went to the emergency room last night. They said that I need surgery.”

After Flynn recuperates, Machine Head will rejoin the tour in Portland, Oregon on November 24.

Flynn made videos documenting his surgery, which can be seen below.
