Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner Has Officially Been Discharged From The Hospital

Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner has officially been discharged from the hospital and is now resting at home in Nashville, TN. As previously reported, the guitarist recently underwent emergency heart surgery at Rudd Heart and Lung Center at UofL Health – Jewish Hospital in Louisville, KY after suffering an aortic aneurysm onstage at the Louder Than Life festival. Dr. Siddharth Pahwa, a cardiothoracic surgeon with UofL Health – UofL Physicians, commented:

“He was only four miles away, but miles equal minutes and he did not have many to spare. Mr. Faulkner is alive today because the stars aligned. He had an outstanding emergency care team, he was close to a world class heart center, and he was quick to recognize he needed help.”
