Robb Flynn Gets Hits by a Taxi in NYC, Slams All That Remains From the Stage


Machine Head were here in NYC on Friday night along with Dethklok, All That Remains and The Black Dahlia Murder; all those in attendance said they rocked the house. But it couldn’t have been easy for frontman Robb Flynn, who not only recently had surgery on his nuts but had been hit by a taxi and hospitalized earlier in the day. Since Robb was in the hospital, Machine Head asked All That Remains if they could switch set times… and All That Remains refused! Enter rant mode from Flynn on stage:

About two days ago we played, and the All That Remains guys asked us to flip-flop with them because their singer got stuck in traffic. And you know we’ve been flip-flopping this whole tour so we were like “yeah, man, you know what, it’s no big deal, we’ll flip flop.” Because that’s what you do, you look out for your brothers, right? And today, I got hit by a cab, right where I had surgery four weeks ago in my nuts. I got clipped in a hit and run. I spent the last four hours in the fucking hospital. And unfortunately I had to fuckin’ rush back here — and actually, it is fortunate, because I’m very happy to be standing on this stage — but I had tof ucking rush back here because nobody could fucking switch, man, nobody could flip-flop. because that’s just how it is, I guess that’s how it is when you look out for your brothers some of the time. This tour, I’ll tell you what, this tour has been so insane,

Fortunately for Machine Head and for all of the fans, Flynn was able to make it to the venue by the band’s scheduled set time anyway… but still, WTF, All That Remains? What a bunch of flaming Labontes. Here’s video of the rant:

When reached for comment, All That Remains frontman Phil Labonte muttered something about how maybe if automatic handguns were legal for all we could’ve stopped the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, shouted homosexual epithets into the phone and then hung up.*
