Original ALICE COOPER Guitarist STEVE HUNTER Hospitalized With Irregular Heartbeat

According to the Alice Cooper fan site SicktThingsUK, original ALICE COOPER guitarist Steve Hunter is currently in hospital in Phoenix, Arizona with atrial fibrillation (the most common cardiac arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat). The doctors have kept him in overnight to allow medication to get his normal heart rhythm back and do tests to discover the cause. Steve's heart has since reverted to its normal rhythm after 19 hours.

Hunter toured with Cooper throughout 2011, but opted to leave the legendary rocker's touring band in 2012 to concentrate on solo projects.

Hunter appeared on five classic ALICE COOPER albums: "Billion Dollar Babies", "Welcome To My Nightmare", "Lace And Whiskey" and "Alice Cooper Goes To Hell". Hunter was also featured on Cooper's 2011 album "Welcome 2 My Nightmare", which was produced by Bob Ezrin, who helmed the original multi-platinum "Welcome To My Nightmare" album in 1975.
