JOHN ANDERSON RECOVERING AFTER HEART ATTACK

John Anderson, in Charleston West Virginia for a performance, suffered a heart attack over the weekend and is recovering in the hospital after surgery.

Publicist Jim Della Croce, said that Anderson had chest pains Saturday afternoon before he was due to perform at the Charleston Sternwheel Regatta and was taken to the hospital, where he had an angioplasty and a stint placed in his heart.

"He's in good spirits," said Della Croce. "He's expected to be released later in the week."

According to the Regatta's director, M. Sharon King, Anderson tried to escape the hospital to honor his scheduled performance.

"The production group told me he tried to leave the hospital twice because he'd never missed a show before," said King.

Anderson's remaining tour dates have been suspended for now -- more news on his tour is scheduled for release later this week.
