Ex-Killswitch Engage singer Howard Jones: "I was in a coma for three days"

5/1/2013 1:48:00 PM PT   comments [28]

When Howard Jones issued his first statement last January explaining his exit from Killswitch Engage, he cited type 2 diabetes as a factor. It now seems as if that issue was indeed a big deal in Jones' life, as he recently revealed to Metal Hammer magazine that he was in a coma for three days last year due to the disease. Here's what Jones had to say:

"Finding out you're diabetic is pretty dramatic. I just started feeling weird, and then I started getting really clumsy. I fell down some stairs and broke a finger, then fell down some other stairs and broke a toe. Then I collapsed. I was in a coma for three days. They basically told me I had the highest sugar level they'd ever seen. Afterwards, they told me I had a 50/50 chance of coming out with brain damage."

Fortunately, Jones appears to have emerged relatively unscathed, and is of course now active in a new project with members of All Shall Perish and Devolved.

Mad love and respect to my bro Howard. Glad to hear you're back on your feet, my man. And I'm stoked you're back making music again. Gonna crank some BHBS in the earbuds at the gym today.
