H.I.M.'s Ville Valo Was Victim of a Drug-Assisted Robbery

HIM HIM frontman VILLE VALO fell victim to a brazen robbery after his drink was spiked in a Minneapolis, Minnesota, bar during his recent US tour - and he has vowed to stay sober ever since.

The Finnish rocker was drinking with strangers the evening before a gig (21OCT05) when the drugging took place, leaving him suffering minor injuries and with his pockets cleaned out.

And the singer is now so terrified of a repeat incident, he is staying off alcohol for the foreseeable future.

He says, "They put some drugs in my pint of beer. I blacked out and woke up in a hotel room I'd never seen before.

"Somebody had stolen my jacket, my asthma medicine, my fags (cigarettes), my credit cards and my cell phone.

"I had a couple of scratches, probably from falling down, but nothing worse.

"I've been sober ever since."
