Larry Miller suffers stroke

Larry Miller is undergoing “intensive rehabilitation” after suffering a stroke.

The blues guitarist’s management say it’s too soon to speculate on his prognosis, but add that he’ll not be able to perform live for the foreseeable future.

In a statement on Miller’s Facebook page, his management say: “It’s with shock and great sadness that we are posting this statement. Recently, Larry Miller suffered a stroke and he is now undergoing an intensive rehabilitation programme.

“If you have bought tickets in advance for any up and coming gigs, please contact the venue. They should all be aware of the situation. All CDs and merchandise continue to be available through Larry’s website.

“Please feel free to send any messages to Larry via email or via Facebook. We will ensure they are communicated to Larry appropriately. In light of these circumstances, we would ask that you respect the privacy of both Larry and his family at this time.”
