With so many aging rockers still touring, I think it’s rather amazing that we haven’t heard more stories like this. After all, most of these guys did not take care of themselves when they were younger.
Dan Cafferty, the razor-voiced singer for Nazareth, has collapsed twice onstage this year. The first incident was in Cranbrook, BC back on July 9. First, the show was delayed by 90 minutes. Then he collapsed 30 seconds into the first song.
Last Thursday, the band was at a Swiss festival when it happened again. When he was examined by doctors, it was determined that he had suffered a stroke.
Dan’s 66. There are many others his age and older still touring. Let’s hope that we’re not going to see more of this kind of stuff.
