HR, longtime frontman of DC punk heroes Bad Brains, is about to get surgery to make his brains less bad. As Loudwire reports, HR says that, later this month, he’ll undergo brain surgery to fix his “Suicide Syndrome,” a biological disorder that causes severe cluster headaches. Last year, Bad Brains fans raised more than $16,000 to help him pay for the surgery with a GoFundMe campaign.
HR isn’t the only Bad Brains member who’s been dealing with health problems lately. Two years ago, guitarist Dr. Know suffered from multiple organ failure and spent some time on life support before recovering.
