Heart Attack Notwithstanding, Tommy Hall Is OK

The mystery of what happened to former

Thirteenth Floor Elevators electric-jug player Tommy Hall

has been solved. Happily, he seems to be OK, all things considered. George Ripley, who posted that Hall had been hospitalized Wednesday on the

Texas '60s Music Refuge

Yahoo! message board, sent Rocks Off an update yesterday evening. "On or about February 12th, Tommy Hall suffered a heart attack." Don't worry, it gets better.

"He had been shopping for groceries and had a seizure. Luckily some passer-by called an ambulance and Tommy made it to the hospital on time.

"Tommy is being treated at California Pacific Hospital in San Francisco. He received a stint in his blocked artery and appears to be well on his way to being released (within the next two or three days).

"He spent the afternoon with his brother and sister.

"At present, we hope for his speedy recovery."

As do we.
