Symphony X Drummer In Heart Scare
Symphony X drummer Jason Rullo has revealed he was rushed to hospital last week with an emergency heart condition.
But he’s hoping to make a full recovery, although it could take up to six months.
Rullo, whose band’s most recent album was 2011′s Iconoclast, says in a statement: “I am happy to be home with my family after what was quite a week. We had a few scary days in there, but I made it through what was hopefully the worst of it.
“Doctors say I have a very good chance for a full recovery – I plan to be back at 100% even if it takes a while. I will go through cardiac rehab so I can be monitored while returning to form, so that I’ll know when it’s safe for me to return to drumming the way I always have, if not better.
“Thanks to my friends and family for the support; and to the fans, I love you all!”
The band add: “Jason has been told his recovery will take a minimum of three to six months under doctors’ care. We are all hopeful that J will be back soon.”
The band haven’t revealed what they intend to do while Rullo, 40, is receiving treatment.
