Posted by on September 4, 2018

Last week, Mastodon cancelled their tour with Dinosaur Jr. and Netherlands, which was originally scheduled to kick off this past Saturday (1). The group explained it was due to “a critical situation of a member of the Mastodon family.” Members of the Atlanta progressive metal giants have revealed their longtime manager Nick John is battling with pancreatic cancer. Vocalist/guitarist Brent Hinds and drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor shared their thoughts via Instagram, stating:

Brent Hinds:

The most kind and beautiful being is in need of very strong amazing vibes more than a ever ..! My friend and manager @nickjzoso who is mainly responsible for mastodons success has been stricken with pancreatic cancer and has been fighting so hard that he is withering away and taking a little bit of me with him.💔”

Brann Dailor:

“Help send all the power and love of the universe to our dear friend and manager Nick John. I don’t know where Mastodon would be without him. He is absolutely integral to the success we have achieved as a band not to mention one of the best people you’d ever hope to meet. We all deeply love and care for him. Send your love his way. Thank you”
