Word out of Toronto this afternoon (Wednesday Jan. 13) Kim Mitchell is recovering in hospital after suffering a heart attack on Tuesday.
A Facebook message was posted by Alert Music, his management company, saying Mitchell underwent emergency surgery. He’ll remain at the hospital for another couple of days before going home.
Kim Mitchell is no stranger to 100.3 The Q!’s 9 listeners. We rock out to his Go For Soda, Patio Lanterns and I Am A Wild Party on a regular basis. And he’s played a ton of great shows in Victoria, most recently at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney, and several summers ago opening for Joe Walsh at Bullen Park in Esquimalt.
Get well soon, Kim. We need you back rockin’ as soon as possible.
