Mac Reynolds Talks Ankylosing Spondylitis Diagnosis and Symptoms

In the season finale of This AS Life Live!, Dan Reynolds and Mac visit The Bunkhouse Saloon in their Las Vegas hometown, where Imagine Dragons got its start. Dan and Mac discuss what it’s like going back to the venue where the band played some of its first shows.

Mac also discusses his AS journey, recalling his initial AS symptoms and how he went undiagnosed for years before seeing a rheumatologist. Mac felt relief and distress following his diagnosis, but with some lifestyle adjustments, he’s been able to maintain his busy schedule– whether he’s on the road with the band or at home with his four kids.

Stay tuned for season 2 of This AS Life Live!
