Tim ‘Herb’ Alexander, drummer with Primus, has returned to the band following heart surgery.
Alexander suffered a heart attack in July of this year and underwent emergency surgery during which his heart had to be stopped.
However, the sticksman was back in the drum stool at Primus’ show in Philadelphia last night. Primus announced the news via their Facebook page with a picture of the drummer and the message “Ladies and Gentleman… Herb is back!!!”
Primus released their latest album, Primus and The Chocolate Factory, this week. In a Willy Wonka inspired move, the band have hidden five golden tickets within copies of the album. Fans who find a lucky ticket in their LP will win free tickets to Primus gigs for life.
