now playing: super seventies internet radio
via my friend jon rosenbaum, i just found out that george grantham, drummer for one of my favorite bands, poco, had a stroke onstage last night during a show in springfield, mass. and was rushed to the hospital. he’s there, in critical condition, as of 4:30 today, and the prognosis is rather gray. he’s regained consciousness a couple of times, but hasn’t been terribly responsive.
his wife and daughter are there with him, at the hospital, and they’re waiting for some definitive word as to his outlook.
george is 57 years old.
keep him in your prayers, if you would be so kind.
i’ve never told any of my poco stories here, just because it’s never occured to me to do so.
i’ll save them for hopefully happier times.
