SYMPHONY X Drummer Jason Rullo Suffers Heart Failure

SYMPHONY X Drummer Jason Rullo Suffers Heart Failure

AOL's Noisecreep is reporting that Symphony X drummer Jason Rullo has suffered heart failure, but is expected to make a full recovery.

Posted on Feb 28th 2013 10:57AM by Amy Sciarretto


Symphony X

Jason Rullo, drummer for New Jersey power metal warriors Symphony X, has suffered from heart failure. He was admitted to a hospital last week but subsequently released. He is not out of the woods, though. At 40, the drummer is a relatively young man, but he will undergo an intense period of rehab that will sideline him from action for three-to-six months.

The band issued an official statement about Rullo's condition and his course of rehabilitation. A full recovery is possible, as long as Rullo adheres to doctor's orders. The statement read as follows:
"World Management and Symphony X must unfortunately announce that last week, Jason Rullo was admitted to the hospital for heart failure. Jason spent a week in the hospital, and was released last week; he has started a rehab program, and has been told that his recovery will take a minimum of 3-6 months under doctors' care. We are all hopeful that J will be back soon!"

The skins smasher himself also commented on his illness, saying:
"I would just like to say that I am happy to be home with my family after what was quite a week. We had a few scary days in there but I made it through what was hopefully the worst of it. Doctors say I have a very good chance for a full recovery so I plan to be back at 100% even if it takes awhile. I will go through cardiac rehab so I can be monitored while returning to form, so that I'll know when it's safe for me to return to drumming the way I always have, if not better.
Thanks to my friends and family for the support, and to the fans, I love you all!"

Noisecreep and the staff at Metal Express Radio sends our best to Rullo as he works to get back into fighting (and drumming) shape.
