STRYPER guitarist Oz Fox will undergo a brain biopsy after he reportedly fell down during a concert last weekend.
Fox suffered a seizure while performing with SIN CITY SINNERS Saturday night (August 11) at Harrah's in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was immediately transported to a local hospital, where medical personnel ran extensive tests to determine the cause of the seizure.
Earlier today, Oz's wife, Annie Lobért, revealed that a spinal tap found "no infection," but that "Oz needs a procedure for biopsies on his brain."
Despite the troubling news, Lobért assured fans: "We trust God no matter what. This is how we fight our battles — it may look like we’re surrounded but God is surrounding us.
"Oz says he just wants to get home and play his guitar — get better and get back on stage."
Formed 35 years ago, STRYPER is the first overtly Christian metal band to go mainstream. The group's name comes from Isaiah 53:5, which states: "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."
STRYPER's albums include "To Hell With The Devil", "Second Coming", "No More Hell To Pay", "Fallen" and the band's latest effort, "God Damn Evil".
