Tim “Herb” Alexander, drummer for Primus, suffered a second heart attack this past Saturday. The first of which struck in July 2014.
Alexander posted an instagram in which he expressed his disbelief that this could happen after undergoing a triple bypass after the first heart attack. He also updated fans on his condition letting everyone know that he is “doing well”. Check out the full instagram below.
Alexander’s career with Primus has been on and off. He first joined the group in 1988. Then, he left in 1996 to then re-join in 2003. He left again in 2009, but returned in 2013. He’s played on eight of the group’s albums, including their most recent one Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, which was released in 2014.
Besides Primus, he has also worked with Puscifer and A Perfect Circle.
I had a second heart attack the other day. I did not think this could happen after having a triple bypass almost exactly 2 years ago. I was overwhelmed with sadness, not because of the fact that I could die but that I would have to say goodbye to my family. It can happen at any moment, and remember IT WILL HAPPEN ONE DAY so tell the people in your life you love them. Enjoy the days you have with them, they are limited. We are all here for a short time.
