Revolution drummer Bobby Z. had a heart attack soon after bidding farewell to Prince

I sure didn't know that BobbyZ had had another heart attack until I saw this link at Dr Funkenberry's page on Facebook::
http://news.heart.org/revolution-drummer-bobby-z-had-a-heart-attack-soon-after-bidding-farewell-to-prince/

I am glad to see that Bobby is recovering well. smile

According to the article this happened in November. I wonder why we are just now hearing about it?

I hope he is well now.

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit
and for that, I am eternally grateful....IDF

wonder if a tour is the most sensible thing at this point?..perhaps guest drummers would be a better option? wishing him all the best.

I agree with BartVanHemelen about Bobby waiting to decide "to use it as a teachable moment for heart diseases".

As Bobby mentioned in the article.....we need to learn to listen to our bodies. We know when something isn't right. The doctor doesn't always know what's going on because it's not his/her body that isn't feeling right. Even the tests aren't always right.

No matter your age, pursue your dreams so that you will LIVE.

That could be said about any number of topics discussed here, captain obvious. Including Prince's business practices, amirite???

I wondered about that too, but apparently everything else is our business except this. Go figure?

it happened because of the stent. Not because he was in bad shape. The first heart attack happened in 2011, so he's been doing really good.

This is such a crazy phase of life, everywhere you turn you see examples of how we're aging and our bodies begin to betray us. When I hear these stories I often think where did the time go? I feel like it was just yesterday when we were young & partying down feeling like we'd live forever without blinking an eye. Prayers out the the Z-Man butterfly
