Peter Murphy Posts Update Following His Heart Attack

-

We have finally got an update on the health of ex- Bauhaus frontman Peter Murphy. Earlier this month he was taken to hospital following a heart attack and had to postpone the remainder of his residency in New York City. Murphy has now posted an update on his health.

The attack happened on August 13th when the singer started suffering shortness of breath, and from there it was determined that he had suffered a heart attack. Doctors then placed two stents in his right coronary artery, and Murphy started on medication for his heart condition, said Dr. Jason Song, the cardiologist who treated him, in a prior statement.

Murphy wrote in a post on August 25th: “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,” adding: “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,” Murphy’s statement continued. “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 bandmates.”

Murphy also requested that in lieu of gifts or flowers, those donations be made to The American Heart Association via this link.

Get well soon Peter.
