    Austin Carlile from Of Mice & Men spoke with Christina O’Neill at Team Rock about how he was “clinically dead for three hours” during heart surgery:

    It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever gone through. It’s hard to go through something like that that’s dangerous in general, and just to not know if you’re gonna be there, four, five or six hours later. When I had my heart surgery, my heart was stopped.

    “They put my head in a whole thing of ice, to stop your brain activity, you’re dead. I was clinically dead for three hours while they did the procedure.

    That stuff terrifies me. But even heartburn scares me!

    I met him once at Six Flags when I was working there as a young man. His father was extraordinarily kind. I don't like his music but I'm always sort of rooting for him because he was so pleasant. That's all I got.
