Ugh, say it ain't so! Get well soon Tim!

Tim Alexander, drummer for Primus, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, suffered a heart attack over the weekend according to this tweet from Puscifer:

He's only 49 years old. Tim will be undergoing surgery sometime this week. According to the below status from Primus' Facebook, Alexander will be having bypass procedures done this week to remove a blockage from his artery near his heart:

Hello all,

As some of you may already know, our friend and über drummer Tim 'Herb' Alexander is having a bypass procedure to remove blockage from arteries near his heart. He is a strong Herculean fellow and we all expect him to be up and around in no time but with all surgical endeavors we want to make sure he has the best energy working for him so let’s all throw our coins in the nearest fountain, wish on the first star of the night, blow out the birthday cake candles with him in mind, pray to whichever deity seems appropriate and generally send good thoughts his way so we can soon, once again, experience the glory that is the magnificent percussive rhythm of the mighty Tim Alexander.

Unfortunately this is all we know currently and we wish Alexander the best of luck with his surgery! Get well Tim, the world needs you!
