Yhdysvaltalaisen rockyhtye Stone Sourin kitaristi Josh Rand on julkaissut virallisen päivityksen liittyen omaan terveydentilaansa. Josh jäi aiemmin tänä vuonna pois Stone Sourin kiertueelta ja hakeutui hakemaan apua ongelmiinsa alkoholin sekä Xanaxin liiallisen käytön takia. Voit lukea Joshin virallisen päivityksen tästä:
“As many of you may already know, in January of this year I made the difficult decision to step away from the Canadian leg of the Stone Sour tour. I hit a personal breaking point and it was imperative that I address it.
My high anxiety and desire to feel comfortable in my own skin over the years led to an alcohol and Xanax dependency. That along with aggression issues made me feel miserable and I just could not continue to live that way. Thankfully, with the support of my band, family, and friends I was able to come home and seek help.
Now (three months later) I’m doing well, but still a work in progress. I want to sincerely thank all of you for your thoughts, prayers, and positive words. It means a lot to me.
