Post Roy Mayorga suffered a minor stroke...
:shock: GET WELL SOON ROY!!! Thoughts and prayers!!!

Former and current members of DREAM THEATER, STONE SOUR and DEVILDRIVER have offered their words of support to STONE SOUR drummer Roy Mayorga, who recently suffered a "minor stroke," causing the cancelation of the remaining dates on the band's current U.S. tour.

Writing on Twitter, the following musicians have commented on Mayorga's health scare:

Mike Portnoy (pictured below with Mayorga; DREAM THEATER, AVENGED SEVENFOLD): "All my love and positive vibes going out to my good bro Roy Mayorga...get well soon, buddy!"

Corey Taylor (STONE SOUR, SLIPKNOT): "Thank you so much, everyone. I know Roy appreciates all your love and thoughts. I do as well. We will keep you all posted about everything."

Dez Fafara (DEVILDRIVER): "Heartfelt goes out to Roy Mayorga from STONE SOUR who suffered a stroke! Fast recovery, brother. Love and endurance golden orbs around you, Roy."

The canceled STONE SOUR concerts include stops in Rapid City, South Dakota, Fargo, North Dakota, Detroit, Libertyville, Illinois, and Columbus, Ohio.

Mayorga joined STONE SOUR in 2006 after the band's previous drummer, Joel Ekman, was forced to leave the group in order to spend time with his son, who was diagnosed with brain stem cancer.

STONE SOUR bassist Shawn Economaki was forced to leave the band's current tour to deal with undisclosed "personal issues." STONE SOUR has used a replacement bassist for some recent shows.

The band's third album, "Audio Secrecy", has sold more than 170,000 copies in the U.S. since its September 2010 release.
