Saxon drummer Nigel Glockler will be allowed to go home from hospital tomorrow, following emergency brain surgery last month.
Glockler’s wife Gina tells Classic Rock: “A 100% recovery is expected. He’ll be back to play on the album when Saxon start work later this year, and he’ll play all future dates excluding the ones next month. Thank you all for your support!”
The NWOBHM icons yesterday confirmed that Sven Dirkschneider – son of former Accept singer Udo – will play drums during the band’s February shows, which were rescheduled as a result of Glockler’s illness.
But the veteran sticksman will be at every show to meet and greet fans:
Feb 03: Newcastle Academy
Feb 04: Nottingham Rock City
Feb 05: Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall
Feb 06: Oxford Academy
Feb 07: London Shepherds Bush Empire
