Primus drummer Tim Alexander has successfully underwent open heart surgery (at least one of his friends said it was in fact a triple bypass operation.) Alexander required the procedure after having suffered a heart attack late last week that was apparently caused by arterial blockage around his heart.
Primus just announced the good news on Tim‘s current condition with the following statement:
“Tim Alexander Is Out of Surgery
The Mighty Tim “Herb” Alexander has pulled through surgery, the blockage from his heart has been removed with no complications and all signs point to a glorious and speedy recovery.”
