Claypool said he was sitting in a VIP area near the near the stage when he heard gunshots and began to run.
"It was pretty eerie because Jason (Aldean) kind of hesitated in his song and I'm thinking, 'Wow, he's pretty worried about something' and then all of a sudden we heard the shots and then I saw him drop his guitar," Claypool told ABC News.
I was at the #route91harvestfest when the shooting occurred. My heart goes out to those injured and killed. Praise God for sparing my life— Brian Claypool (@Brian_Claypool) October 2, 2017
