Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner “Stable & Resting” Following Emergency Heart Surgery

As previously reported, Judas Priest recently postponed the remaining dates on their U.S. tour after Richie Faulkner was hospitalized with “major medical heart condition issues.” Now, the guitarist’s significant other, Mariah Lynch has since revealed that he had to undergo emergency heart surgery:

“Thank you to everyone for all your messages 🙏🏼 I will try to get back to you as soon as I can ❤️ Richie underwent major emergency heart surgery. He is stable & resting 🥳 If you know him, you know how tough & strong he is. So tough that he finished the show & kept the hair flips coming. There’s no one like him. We’d be lost without him 🌹”
