In July 2014, we reported that Primus drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander had suffered a heart attack and would need to undergo triple-bypass surgery. Fortunately, Alexander fared well through the surgery and that was that. Over the holiday weekend, Alexander took to his Instagram to post a short-but-sobering post to let fans know that he had suffered a second heart attack.
He posted the same picture twice, the first of which you can see below and the second of which had a caption that says "Thank you all for the love. I am home and doing well. Just taking it easy."
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. ?
