Dennis Lyxzén heart attack

Refused vocalist Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, INVSN, Fake Names) faced a serious health scare today as he suffered a massive heart attack in the morning.

Currently hospitalized in Uppsala, Sweden, Lyxzén had to cancel his upcoming performances on his doctor's recommendation of "no rock" due to his health condition. 

Taking to social media, he shared the harrowing experience of the heart attack and shared his thanks to the medical staff at the hospital. Despite feeling sore, tired, and shaken from the ordeal, Lyxzén remains hopeful about his recovery. 

He says:

So this morning I had a massive heart attack at my hotel room. It's was extremely painful and wildly scary.
Thanks the the wonderful doctors and nurses at the Uppsala hospital I'm still around to fight another day.
Under the circumstances I feel ok. Sore and tired and really shook up.

I real really hate cancelling show but the doctor said no rock for a couple of weeks.
Which means that the @refused show at @rosendalgardenparty is not happening.
A complete bummer as I was really looking forward to it. But hopefully I/we will be able to make up to you soon.

The good news is that with medication I can get back to my rocking self hopefully sooner than later.

Life is weird and precious. Take care of each and tell your loved ones that you love them.
