Two weeks ago, Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy suffered a heart attack in the middle of his NYC residency where he was doing full album shows of most of his catalogue. Murphy was rushed to a hospital and shortly after the injury, it was unclear when or if he would recuperate. Well, there's good news. Murphy stated via instagram that he has made a full recovery.
He said: "Following my recent episode in New York City with my heart attack and being admitted into Lenox Hill Hospital and seeing myself go through the rigors of intensive care, I am very happy to say that I have made a full recovery. Thanks to the superb team of doctors, specialists, nurses and care staff. I am so glad to say I am up and running again.
My tour manager Brian Lowe and my assistant Chantal Thomas were directly instrumental in saving my life and to whom I cannot thank enough. I also want to thank every single friend and fan who has been supporting me throughout this ordeal. I remain grateful especially to my Bauhaus band mates . xxx Peter In lieu of gifts or flowers, Peter has asked to make a donation to The American Heart Association at https://tinyurl.com/peter-murphy-heart."
