Has anyone seen Zoltan Bathory? The Five Finger Death Punch guitarist has been missing since Friday, when he was last seen in Las Vegas. While this sounds like the plot of “The Hangover,” the band’s tour with Shadows Fall is about to start, and with him being the lead guitarist, it’s pretty serious.
We have not been able to locate Zoltan from 5FDP since Friday night’s show in Las Vegas. He has not responded to calls, text messages, or emails, and he was last seen around 2:00am Friday night at Wasted Space in the Hard Rock Casino, taking tequila shots at the bar with a group of guys from a bachelor party who came to the show.
If anybody has any information as to the whereabouts of Zoltan, please email email@example.com immediately. This is not like him and the band needs to prepare for the upcoming tour. We have already notified the appropriate authorities, but any help Vegas fans might be able to provide is very much appreciated. Thank you.
I hope that everyone checked the roof before calling the authorities. Seriously, this is pretty shocking, and while everyone’s had a lost weekend, many of them in Vegas, we hope he turns up soon, and in good shape. And while this screams “publicity stunt” on first listen, it was verified by their booking agent, which gives the story more cred than we initially gave it.
