Saxon Drummer Recovers From Brain Aneurysm

Nigel Glockler returned to the kit for London show February 7



Nigel Glockler is a lucky man.

Two months ago, Glockler suffered a near-fatal brain aneurysm.

That’s when one of the blood vessels in the brain balloons and fills with blood. Most time, they hemorrhage.

Somehow, Nigel had fully recovered from his brush with death, and is already back working with Saxon.

The drummer endured two surgeries in December, but was back behind the kit earlier this month.

A statement to Saxon’s Facebook page from Glockler says:

“I am pleased to say that the neurosurgeons have informed me that I have made a full 100 percent recovery and there is zero damage at all from the ruptured aneurysm, mainly due to the part of the brain it was located in. This means that I am okay to get back to work, but I am told to ease back into it and on my own timeframe — meaning whatever I am comfortable with. To that end, I have started to work on getting my stamina back up and I look forward to being back full time very soon. Thank you all again for the support and well wishes!”

Glockler played with the band at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, England, on February 7.

Congratulations to Nigel for beating the odds.
