Slaves guitarist Alex Lyman stabbed
Alex Lyman, guitar player for Sacramento, California post-hardcore/rock outfit Slaves, was hospitalized last night after being stabbed by a "felon." Lyman has issued this update (in addition to the photo above):
"Last night I was stabbed in the side with a 4 inch cut that is 2 inches deep and a centimeter from my spleen. This was all from a felon with prior charges who is now in prison. There was no confrontation and nothing was done to provoke this. It was spilt because I'm a 'faggot in skinny jeans'. I have multiple slices on my throat and arms but only one serious one and I'll still be at all slaves dates. Wish the world could stop hating what they don't understand."
