Rocker Jim Keays hospitalised

6/18/2014

Veteran rocker Jim Keays has been admitted to an intensive care unit at a hospital in Australia after coming down with pneumonia. The Scottish-born star, who fronted Australian rock group The Masters Apprentices, has been battling a form of blood cancer called multiple myeloma for several years, and he fell sick with the potentially deadly lung condition last week (ends01Jun14). He was hospitalised just days after performing a gig in Melbourne, Australia, and the 67 year old is now said to be in a "stable condition". A statement released by his publicist Dianna O'Neill reads, "Australian rock legend Jim Keays has been admitted to a Melbourne hospital with pneumonia due to complications from his seven-year battle with multiple myeloma... He's a fighter, if anyone's a fighter he's a fighter, and he's got things to do." Keays fronted The Masters Apprentices from 1965 until 1972, and went on to enjoy a successful solo career.
