Musician's musician suffers real heartbreak

I hate it when my American news comes from Holland, but this just in from Kevin Lynch.

Buddy Miller suffers heart attack, undergoes triple bypass

Sunday, February 22, 2009 – Ace guitarist, songwriter and producer Buddy Miller, touring with Emmylou Harris, apparently suffered a heart attack Friday in Baltimore and underwent triple bypass surgery.

Miller, 56, was part of the "3 Girls And Their Buddy" tour with Harris, Shawn Colvin and Patty Griffin. Miller had played in concert on Friday night.

Miller was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, where he had surgery, according to The Tennessean. The web site said, "The surgery was successful, and Miller will likely be recovering in Baltimore for several weeks."

Miller is a recording artist in his own right with a CD with wife Julie coming out March 3 on New West Records. He also was guitarist for the Robert Plant and Alison Krauss tour.

The tour made a stop in Torrington at the Warner Theater.

The tour visited the Warner Theatre in Torrington a couple of weeks ago.

Glad to hear that the surgery was successful. Hope that's totally true.
