Roy Rogers Show Cut Short Due to Chest Pain; Guitarist Recovering in Santa Rosa Hospital
At Saturday night’s benefit concert in Guerneville (Sonoma County, California), after the power went out during the show, Roy Rogers suffered severe chest pain and was taken by ambulance to Sutter Hospital in Santa Rosa. A quick-on-their-feet Emergency Team and Cardiology Unit assessed the pain, then diagnosed and treated a mild heart attack. A stent was inserted quickly, and Roy is now resting comfortably and recovering well.
“God pulled the plug on the power so that He wouldn’t have to pull the plug on you,” said long time friend and co-writer Donna Johnston. As the doctors told Roy, “It wasn’t your time.”
