ELP Drummer Carl Palmer Recovering From Heart Surgery

Emerson, Lake & Palmer drummer Carl Palmer recently revealed that he is recovering from heart surgery.

The 73-year-old veteran drummer underwent heart surgery in London last Wednesday.

“This morning, Carl underwent a successful ablation procedure to restore sinus rhythm as he was previously in atrial fibrillation,” said a statement addressed to his fans.

The statement added, “Carl would to thank his consultant cardiologist, Dr. Tushar Salukhe, who performed the procedure, and all the wonderful attending staff on the Sir Reginald Wilson Ward at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London who have been looking after him today.”

Palmer also shared on Facebook some post-operative photos taken at his hospital bed.

Atrial fibrillation ablation is a surgery conducted as part of treating an irregular and chaotic heartbeat called atrial fibrillation.

Palmer is scheduled to embark on “The Return Of Emerson, Lake & Palmer” 2023 summer U.S. tour in July.
