Stryper guitarist Oz Fox will undergo a brain biopsy after he reportedly fell down during a concert last weekend.

Fox suffered a seizure while performing with Sin City Sinners Saturday night (August 11) at Harrah’s in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was immediately transported to a local hospital, where medical personnel ran extensive tests to determine the cause of the seizure.
