Heavy Metal merchant ‘Roy Mayorga’ of “Stone Sour” has sadly suffered a minor stroke in Des Moines after the bands headline gig there.

Subsequently the band have made the verdict to terminate the rest of their tour dates to allow for their stickman to make a full recuperation.

On “Stone Sours” MySpace blog a recent post read: “Our friend and drummer, Roy Mayorga suffered a minor stroke a couple of nights ago after our show in Des Moines”. The post also states “He’s doing great and is expected to make a 100% recovery”.

The band have recently just come off of the road from the “Avalanche Tour 2011”. This tour also saw the likes of “Theory of a Deadman” and the engagingly thundering “Halestorm”.

Stone Sour are a band from Des Moines whose newest album, “Audio Secrecy”, was released just last year. The line up consists of ‘Corey Taylor’, ‘Shawn Economaki’, ‘Jim Root’, ‘Josh Rand’, and of course, ‘Roy Mayorga’.

‘Roy Mayorga’ is a Forty One year old drummer who was also involved with both of the ‘Max Cavalera’ projects ‘Sepultura’ and ‘Soulfly’.
