Saga Drummer Suffers Heart Attack

According to InsideOut Music, SAGA drummer Brian Doerner recently suffered a heart attack and will not be able to participate in the band's upcoming European tour. Chris Sutherland from Kim Mitchell's band will replace him.

Doerner has issued the following statement:

"To the Fans of Saga, I am lucky to be alive and recovering at home with my family today, October 8th, 2007 after suffering a heart attack on Friday, October 5, 2007 and I anticipate a full recovery and look forward to playing drums again in the future. Regrettably, I will not be drumming for the 10,000 Days tour under medical advice. I wish the band the best of luck with this great new CD and I would like to say that working with Saga has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career and I will miss them greatly as friends and as talented musicians."
