Madina Lake - Matthew Leone Remains Brave After Attack

Madina Lake rocker Matthew Leone refuses to be intimidated after he was attacked for intervening in a domestic bust-up, insisting: "I'd do it again."
The bassist underwent life-saving surgery for a fractured skull and a brain haemorrhage after he was savagely beaten as he tried to break up a violent dispute between a couple in his native Chicago, Illinois in July last year (10).
He has been left with memory and concentration problems following the attack - but he's adamant he would react in the same way again if he saw a couple having a physical confrontation.
Leone tells Kerrang! magazine, "I would do the same thing that I did last time."
The rocker also tells of the dangers he faced during his recovery from the attack, revealing even a small strain on his body could have triggered a fatal brain swelling.
He adds, "So many things could have killed me. If I sneezed, it could have killed me. If I passed a stool that was too large, the exertion could have killed me. I had to take medication so that my stools weren't too large. There were so many crazy things."
