Prayers for John Blackwell

I read on instagram that while he was performing at a show he went numb in leg and arm. He went to the doctor and found he has two brain tumors. Just keep him lifted up

[There is no proof at this time of tumours as he is going through medical tests to find out what is wrong - luv4u]

Such a nice guy who has had too much tragedy in his life. Met John 2 weeks after Prince hired him, in Maui. He was so happy and excited and spent the week going into local clubs with Prince and just jamming! The first time I saw him he was wearing an NPG hat and I walked up to him and said, "you a Prince fan?" He say's "yea, and I'm the new drummer" with a big grin. I was like "Yo, John Blackwell and gave him the congrats hug that guys do." After he lost his daughter, he just never really seemed happy. Prayers for the man...

Can someone confirm that this is indeed true? I saw the Instragram posting and wasn't sure if it was real. 2016 really needs to give it a rest if so.... sad

pray God bless everyone. NO exceptions. pray

Well, now she deleted it. But Elisa Fiorillo did as well. Strange.

I really hope it's not as serious as it sounds...

I consider myself very lucky to have seen him play with Prince on the ONA tour in 2002, dude is a madman on the drums!

2016 can indeed go eat a dick, worst year in music history so far...

Let's not assume. Just wait for the testing to be completed.

I agree. Testing isn't difficult. I mean, it's tedious, and a chore, but it's probably one of many tests he's undergone to find out the source of the problem(s). Let's not plan a funeral before he's diagnosed.

Who is assuming what here? Being tested can be a stressful period of doubt and uncertainty...

Testing can be difficult too. For example, the dye they inject into people to take some scans makes some people sick.

A pap smear can be excruciating for a woman with endometriosis.

A mamogram can be very painful for a woman with fibrocystic breasts.

So let's just send good thoughts and leave it at that.

I did a contrast CT once. It gave me electrical crackling sensations in my mouth and a warm feeling throughout my body. Fun fun fun.
