Symphony X - Drummer Suffers Heart Failure


Worrying news came from the Symphony X camp today. It was announced that last week, drummer Jason Rullo was admitted to the hospital for heart failure. Jason spent a week in the hospital, and was released last week. The good news is that he has started a rehab program, and has been told that his recovery will take a minimum of 3-6 months under doctors' care. The band hopes the drummer can be back soon.

A note from Jason Rullo: "I would just like to say that I am happy to be home with my family after what was quite a week. We had a few scary days in there but I made it through what was hopefully the worst of it. Doctors say I have a very good chance for a full recovery so I plan to be back at 100% even if it takes awhile. I will go through cardiac rehab so I can be monitored while returning to form, so that I'll know when it's safe for me to return to drumming the way I always have, if not better.

Thanks to my friends and family for the support, and to the fans, I love you all!"

Jesus holy f*ckin shit! I seriously hope he'll be fine in the long run. I don't want one of the best band in the world to lose their kickass drummer.

Could be a genetic condition. That's terrible in any case, here's hoping for a speedy recovery!

I read the headline and thought he has dead. So glad he is not.

You are right about Romeo, Allen's a bit fat too.
