The post Judas Priest’s Richie Faulkner Is Shredding on Guitar 10 Weeks After Life-Saving Surgery: Watch appeared first on Consequence.
Faulkner took to Instagram Live, streaming himself lighting up the fretboard for nearly two hours. Faulkner is clearly in fine form, ripping off the kinds of impressive leads and solos that landed him his illustrious position in Judas Priest.
The footage is certainly good news and a major relief for the many of us who’ve been concerned for Faulkner following his brush with death. The guitarist’s aorta ruptured and started bleeding during a performance of “Painkiller” at Judas Priest’s Louder Than Life set in late September. Faulkner was rushed to a nearby medical center where he underwent a major open-heart surgery.
Faulkner recently offered an update on his condition during the seventh week of his recovery, writing that he is “feeling very strong and positive.”
“My incisions have healed very well and I can definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel,” Faulkner added. “I’m walking well and moving freely, I’m pretty active and I’m starting cardiac therapy very soon. I’m playing guitar everyday and with the love and support of my family, the continued support from you guys and the inspiration that I get from the guitar, I’ll be back on stage in no time! My surgeons are very pleased with my progress and have all reserved front row tickets for the next Priest show haha.”
