Madina Lake - Matthew Leone 'Scared' Of Live Return

Madina Lake rocker Matthew Leone has returned to the stage less than a year after he was left fighting for his life in a coma - and he admits he was terrified of performing live again.
The bassist was subjected to a savage beating in Chicago, Illinois in June last year (10) after intervening in a domestic dispute between two strangers.
He made a remarkable recovery after undergoing brain surgery following the attack, and he wowed fans by returning to the stage at the band's gig in their hometown of Chicago last month (23Apr11).
Leone tells Kerrang! magazine, "I was really scared. By the time we started with Never Take Us Alive, everything came back to me and felt normal. All that fear just disappeared and the energy of the fans carried me along the whole way."
Frontman Nathan Leone - Matthew's twin brother - adds, "We wanted to do this show so badly so we could be Madina again... We're all so proud of him."
