Budgie's Burke Shelley in Hospital

Postby WeeMann » Thu Nov 11, 2010 9:22 am

Budgie's Burke Shelly has been rushed to hospital with an aortic aneurysm which had split. The band were in Poland to start their Polish tour.

Not necessarily a huge profile band, Budgie are, nonetheless, a big influence on a lot of bands - Metallica, Soundgarden and Maiden amongst them. I have to admit they're a band that have completely passed me by, only coming to my attention when my wife's friend joined the band on guitar.

Here's hoping Burke makes a full and swift recovery.

Aortic dissection? That's serious stuff! He's been operated on, so he should be fine, but something like 50% don't even make it to the hospital!
