Reed Mullin Returns (Somewhat Questionably) To Play With Corrosion Of Conformity


On Monday, we reported that Corrosion of Conformity drummer Reed Mullin had left the band’s current tour with Lamb of God and Clutch due to having suffered an alcohol-related seizure. Mullin was left behind at a hospital in Edmonton, Canada, where he was to undergo recovery treatment. In the post, we noted that CoC bassist Mike Dean didn’t go easy on his drummer, saying that his band “will not enable Reed to continue killing himself on our watch.”

Except it now appears that Mullin has rejoined the band on tour. The following was posted on CoC’s Facebook page:


We’re glad the band is taking this one day at a time, but that “against advice” stands out to me. Mullin had the seizure Sunday night, and rejoined his band last night, Tuesday. That doesn’t sound like enough recovery time to me, either for an alcohol addiction or for a seizure. You gotta wonder whether or not Mullin is putting as much time and effort into his recovery as he actually needs. There’s no shame in taking it easy when it’s your health on the line.

Anyway, we wish Mullin the best and hope that he can maintain a healthy lifestyle, both for the remainder of this tour and for his life in general.
