GERRY MARSDEN HAS TRIPLE HEART BYPASS OP

The Scouse music legennd is expected to make a full recovery...

LIVERPOOL legend GERRY MARSDEN of THE PACEMAKERS has undergone a triple heart bypass operation at LIVERPOOL’s BROAD GREEN hospital.

The singer, 60, was admitted yesterday (September 14) and will have to take three months off in order to recover from the surgery.

His daughter Yvette said: “We don’t know how long he’s going to have to stay in hospital for. The operation is supposed to be routine, so hopefully he’ll be out soon.”

Gerry And The Pacemakers were pioneers of the Merseybeat scene of the 60’s and are most famous for the chart-topping hits ‘Ferry Cross The Mersey’ and ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

Marsden’s wife, Pauline, stayed with him last night at the hospital.

According to BBC News, Yvette has said that her father will find resting a challenge, as he still tours with many bands from the Sixties.

She said: “Keeping him in the house for that long will be the most difficult thing. As soon as he’s out, he’ll be raring to go, and will want to get back out there on tour.”
