Symphony X Drummer Suffers Heart Failure: Expected To Make Full Recovery

In a bit of terrifying news, Symphony X drummer Jason Rullo last week was admitted into a hospital for heart failure. He spent a week there and was ultimately released. He has begun a rehab program and is being told that his recovery will take a minimum of 3-6 months under doctors’ care. Below is a statement from Rullo.

Symphony X’s last release was 2011’s Iconoclast, which came out via Nuclear Blast Records.

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!
