While recording an upcoming Loudwire podcast, Bad Brains frontman H.R. (Paul Hudson) revealed some startling news: He will undergo brain surgery this month. The surgery will hopefully improve a neurobiological disorder called SUNCT (or “Suicide Syndrome”) that causes severe cluster headaches.
The headaches have been ongoing for some time, and in March of 2016 H.R.'s wife Lori even helped set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for treatment. H.R.'s caregiver told Loudwire, that his headaches are often and unannounced, though they increase in severity at night.
