Former Deicide/Obituary guitarist Ralph Santolla has been in a coma since last week after suffering a heart attack. We have an unfortunate update in the story.

Ralph's mother, Sue Santolla-Rocha, offered an update on Facebook saying that Ralph is unlikely to recover:

“My dear family and wonderful loving friends of Ralph Santolla… outlook is very poor. We have been so blessed by so many people to have come to see him, over 100 a day. The hospital has been so great about letting people come in. Any of you are welcome to come between 8am and 8pm. If you come after 8pm you must come thru ER. Bill Hudson II is playing Ralph’s guitar in a concert tonight. I have my boys, Pierre Conze Devin Grubb, Bill Hudson, Rick Maccani, Raul Andes have been with me every step of this difficult journey… I can not do this without them. God bless you all and Ralph-may he make his face shine upon us all and give us peace, now and forever, Ralph’ son Dorian, Melissa Collas DeMarco, John DeMarco, Ralph’sister, SueSue Graham, John Rocha all are thankIng you also for your caring. Deborah Borecki we love you.”

Our thoughts are with the Sontolla family through this difficult time.
