Nazareth frontman Dan McCafferty apparently is experiencing some more serious health problems. According to U.K. magazine Classic Rock , the band's set at Switzerland's Summerdays Festival on Friday was cut short after the singer reportedly complained of shortness of breath.
A message posted on the website for Belgium's Vosterfeesten event, which Nazareth had been scheduled to headline this past Sunday, reported that McCaffery was in a Swiss hospital "after he suffered a stroke," adding that it was "the second [he'd had] in a short time." The veteran rockers have been forced to cancel additional shows in Germany and Sweden.
Last month, Nazareth canceled most of the dates it had scheduled for a Canadian summer trek after McCafferty collapsed on stage at a July 9 concert in Cranbrook, British Columbia. In addition, earlier this year, the band postponed a series of March U.K. dates after the frontman suffered a chest infection.
Nazareth is best-known for its hard-rock anthem "Hair of the Dog" and for its 1975 rendition of the old Everly Brothers hit "Love Hurts," which reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.
