John Cowan is recovering after heart attack. Known as a soul music and progressive bluegrass vocalist and bass guitar player, the sixty one year old is now at his home in Nashville getting some rest form a mild heart attack. What happened to the star, as he returned back to his home following a solo tour he was feeling unwell, and what followed a hospital stay because of one blocked arteries. After Cowan was given an angioplasty and placement of two stents, he was released.
On Jan. 31, just four days after his heart attack, Cowan played a sold-out show at City Winery. However, at his next concert, in Frankfort, Ky., Cowan left the stage early because he was unable to catch his breath. A subsequent show in Chattanooga was also canceled so that Cowan could concentrate on his recovery; both concerts will be rescheduled.
According to manager Brian Smith, Cowan is feeling much better and plans to join his bandmates in The Doobie Brothers for a private performance in Texas later this week.
