Madina Lake bassist attacked,hospitalized

Today our thoughts are with Madina Lake bassist Matthew Leone who is currently hospitalized and had to have a third of his skull removed to alleviate swelling on his brain after he was beaten last night in the band’s hometown of Chicago. According to the band’s blog, the twin brother of the band’s frontman, Nathan Leone, was walking home from his brother’s apartment and saw a man “severely beating his wife.”
“Being the most amazing, strong, heroic and incredible person I know—even though the guy was twice his size—Matthew intervened,” Nathan wrote. “He managed to subdue this guy for a second and since his wife was beat up pretty good called the cops. As he did, the guy jumped him from behind and beat him. This guy did things I can’t even type. [Afterward], he and his beaten wife left Matthew unconscious on the street.”
He continued, “Please send all your love and good energy and vibrations to him. I’ve been and will be next to him throughout the entire recovery process. We don’t know enough details yet about how that will develop. 
The world can be evil beyond belief and as much as we want this evil eliminated, right now our hearts, heads and energies need to go to my best friend, soulmate, hero and angel, Matthew.”
There has been no word yet on Leone’s current condition however the band’s publicist did send an e-mail to MTV News which said, “”[Matthew] is such a sweet, lovable guy … [I'm] totally crushed to hear the news, and hoping and praying he pulls through this.”
We wish Matthew a speedy and safe Jonah Bayer
