Saint Vitus co-founder/bassist Mark Adams has been absent from the group as Pat Bruders (ex-Crowbar/Down) has been filling in for him over the band’s recent tours. Unfortunately, Adams has revealed he is suffering from Parkinson’s disease. A GoFundMe page has been launched in order to help him afford the extensive medical expenses for him to receive proper treatment.
The group issued the following statement:
“Mark Adams of Saint Vitus has Parkinson’s Disease. He is not able to afford proper heath care and is in need of assistance. For all those that have wondered what was going on in his absence this is the reason. He is the co founder of Saint Vitus and well loved. All funds will be directed to Mark Adams’ medical needs and ability to live. We are reaching out to fans, friends and, in other words, The Saint Vitus Family for help. Thank you!
