AFTER being rushed to hospital after a show to have a titanium plate inserted in her cranium, Vixen singer Janet Gardner has boasted: “I am literally a metal head!”
Gardner, 55, is recovering after a hole was drilled in her head to remove a subdural haematoma that was placing pressure on her brain.
A titanium plate was then placed over the hole. Gardner felt unwell after a show with her solo band at West Hollywood’s Whiskey A Gogo on Thursday night.
“I wanted to take a moment, and catch everyone up on the last few, very eventful days,” Gardner said on Facebook.
“First, I would like to thank everyone who came out to our show in Los Angeles, at the Whisky a GoGo, on Thursday. We had a wonderful time, and the crowd was amazing!
“Unfortunately, on Friday, things turned a little upside down on us. I was rushed off to the hospital, and had to have emergency surgery to remove a subdural hematoma (sic) that was putting pressure on my brain. They had to drill a hole into my head to remove the hematoma and put a titanium plate in to cover the hole.
I am literally a metal head!
“I apologize for having to cancel the Vamp’d show last night. We will be rescheduling that soon. I will keep you posted on my recovery. Thank you for all the love and support!💜”
Vixen, who plan to release a new album this year, remain on the bill for the Monsters Of Rock Cruise which sails from Florida in the first week of February.
