On July 6th, Robbie underwent multiple bypass surgery. He is home and recuperating. He sends the following note: -
"The dedication and support that was given to me by the staff at St. Peter's Hospital in Albany New York was the reason for my quick recovery. I was in the most capable of hands from the minute I entered the facility. My deepest thanks."
Robbie also sends his message to his Japanese fan:-
"All my friends in Japan should not worry for my health. The
surgery was long and difficult but I am in recovery now and expect to
reschedule my recording project "Blue Noir" and the supporting tour, for
sometime in the near future. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes.
As Ever, Robbie"
