Heart attack has Prince drummer Bobby Z in critical condition


Bobby Z, 55, the music producer best known as a drummer for Prince, is in critical condition in a Twin Cities hospital after a heart attack.

“He had three arteries that were blocked, and the doctors on Sunday night were able to take care of two of them,” Adam Rivkin, his son, told me Wednesday. “They wanted him to get stronger in order to go through the final phase and take care of the third one. He’s in critical condition and resting. He needs to build his strength so his heart can work on its own. Now they have him on help. That’s why he’s in critical condition,” said Adam, who sounded as if he was holding it together, although clearly shaken up.

Now that text messages are flying around about Bobby Z’s heart attack, Adam said it was OK to write something, even though he could not reach his mother, Vicki Rivkin, by phone to discern what she was comfortable with disclosing.

Bobby Z was selected by Prince for his first tour, according to Wikipedia, because he was a white guy and Prince wanted a racially diverse band.

Get well, Bobby Z.

HOPKINS, Minn. - The man who kept the beat to hits like Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ suffered a heart attack over the weekend, but doctors say they expect him to recover.

Vicki Rivkin said her husband, Robert, is sedated and resting, but is expected to pull through.

The man known as “Bobby Z” helped create what became known as the “Minneapolis Sound” in the 1980s, and he holds a special place in the state’s music history.

When Prince became an international superstar, Bobby Z kept the beat for his band, The Revolution, joining him on tour and appearing in music videos until he left to produce an album with his bandmates.

Now, however, the drummer at the heart of hits like “Uptown” and “Raspberry Beret” is having some trouble with his own heart.

Family members said Rivkin started feeling pain in his neck, arms and chest on Saturday, but he thought it was a pinched nerve from his years of drumming until his family convinced him to go to the ER and doctors discovered three of his arteries were blocked.

So far, they’ve unblocked two of the arteries and are waiting until his body to be strong enough to take care of the third.

Vicki Rivkin said she got a call from Prince on Wednesday afternoon, and her husband’s former bandmates are on their way to the state to be with their friend while he recovers.

non, en fait, il n'est pas encore décédé.... donc espérons qu'il s'en sorte et qu'il aille mieux....

Pour moi Bobby Z reste immanquablement LE batteur de Purple Rain (la chanson), avec son coté métrominique hypnotique, et aussi LE batteur du minneapolis sound
