After being nominated four times, Mastodon finally went home with their first Grammy for "Best Metal Performance" of "Sultan's Curse" at the 60th Annual Grammy awards. But many fans noticed that one of the key figures of the band was absent. Some believed that guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds may have been banned from the ceremony, or kicked out like he was in 2015.

It turns out that Hinds was actually intending on going to the awards ceremony, but while he was riding his motorcycle, Hinds became involved in a nasty hit-and-run accident.

Hinds cleared the air for his absence in an instagram post where he shared some of his injuries, including some bad road rash. He had also been placed in a neck brace, though it is unknown if his injuries were that severe, or if it was used as a precaution by the parademics while transporting him to the hospital.

In his post, Hinds writes, "I was lucky enough to live through playing a Lil bit a guitar on the sound track on January 23, 2018 and that’s why I couldn’t attend the Grammy’s where we actually on a Grammy ..!(because I was involved in a hit and run on my motorcycle that ended me up in -- pistola)..that i got absolutely NO shout out from my best friends/band mates-- ..I know they love me and just be havin stupid nervousness,but still !
