OVERKILL frontman Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth has posted the following message regarding the "minor stroke" he suffered about 30 minutes into the band's headlining performance in Nürnberg, Germany on Thursday, June 27th:

"Well, slapped by the hand of fate...God?

"Hmmm, regardless, I don't write the script, just act it out, like the rest.

"The deal is....boom, in the brain...but got through it. Had a ton of tests in Nürnberg, I know a little German, Doc kept mumbling...'can't find it...', I think he was talking about my brain. One of life's little detours, but just a detour...the road traveled is intact. All parts working, well, the ones that worked before anyway....and was given no medical reason to stop doing what I do. Your well wishes for me is the best medicine I've received...even the 'he's dead" ones brought a smile to my face.

"So...again ......'up the irons, we're goin in....can't kill a dead man'

"Thanks, BB"
