Primus Drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander Suffers Second Heart Attack

In 2014, Primus drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander suffered a heart attack, resulting in Tool drummer Danny Carey filling in for several dates Primus had scheduled for a tour with its classic lineup while Alexander recovered.

Saturday, Alexander revealed via his Instagram, that he recently had another heart attack:

Alexander is currently home and resting according to a follow-up Instagram post Saturday. Primus is next scheduled to play festival dates at Joshua Tree and Sacramento in October.

Primus played Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown last summer on a tour with Dinosaur, Jr. and Sean Lennon’s Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, a tour that led to the recent Claypool Lennon Delirium album and tour. Below is a fan-shot video of “Southbound Pachyderm” complete with fireworks display.
