Bad news folks. Legendary Primus drummer Tim Alexander has suffered a heart attack late last week and should be heading onto the operating table today or tomorrow. Our thoughts go out to him and his family and we hope for his speedy recovery. It certainly takes huge heart to drum on the side of Les Claypool or Maynard and we hope it can carry him through this.
To those unaware Alexander is the current drummer for Primus, having previously been a member of the band from 1988 to 1996 and 2003 to 2009. He rejoined the Les Claypool-led group in 2013. In addition, Alexander has appeared on Puscifer’s two studio albums and one EP. We again wish him a speedy recovery so he may grace our ears with his undeniable talent.
