Rick Parfitt - Rick Parfitt's Heart Scare

Status Quo's Christmas (11) tour was nearly derailed after frontman Rick Parfitt was hospitalised in London just hours before the rockers kicked off the shows.
The singer underwent a routine operation to clear a blocked artery on 2 December (11) - a day before the musicians played their first festive show to fans at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England.
A spokesperson tells Britain's Daily Mail, "Rick briefly attended hospital for a straightforward procedure pre-tour but has been cleared to perform on the inaugural QuoFest tour."
The stars are playing 12 dates as part of their QuoFest tour, which wraps up in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday (17Dec11).
