PolkSalad Didn't Hubert just have a heart attack? Jody played at Legends last night but I didn't go.

Yes, Hubert suffered a heart attack and was in a semi-coma just a few weeks ago. The fact that he sat up and spoke a little the next day was deemed "miraculous". I somehow can't believe that his recovery was miraculous enough to allow him to play a gig that soon after - but who knows?

My guess is that this press release was written before, or without knowledge of, Hubert's heart attack.
