The guitar world is breathing a sigh of relief after a health scare this past weekend involving flatpicker supreme, Tony Rice.
During his show on Friday (4/1) in Danville, VA, Tony felt faint and weak, and he was unable to make his scheduled date the next day in Spartanburg, SC. From all reports, the Unit put on a great show in Tony’s absence.
Rice’s doctor was concerned that perhaps there was a heart condition at the root of his fatigue, but a CAT scan revealed no problems. He now believes that Tony’s symptoms were stress-related.
Tony is said to be feeling fine and ready to go for Merlefest later this month.
