Did Chiodos’s Frontman Overdose?
Chiodos frontman Craig Owen has allegedly wrote a post and took it down again that suggests that he took an overdose.
In a statement on his own personal website, Owens had written the following:
“So, after an attempted overdose early yesterday morning, I found myself awake in the emergency room around 8 – 12 hours later.
However, don’t worry about me, I’m fine. I am being checked into a mental clinic beginning tomorrow at 8 am.
I’d like to apologize to everyone at Power Chord Academy, for me not being able to make it to speak to all of the kids tomorrow in Chicago. I promise to make it up, the best that I can and hopefully will be able to reschedule the entire event.
Wish me luck, and let’s hope that I learn from this, and that I am able get out very soon.
The post has been taken down from the site. At the moment, it remains unsure whether Owens wrote the post himself or if a hacker wrote the post and therefore it was taken down. Metal Hammer will keep you up to date with the latest on this story and wish Craig all the best with his health.
