Three-time Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer was rushed to an Albuquerque-area hospital after cutting short a concert.

 

Setzer, former frontman of the Stray Cats, had performed three Christmas-themed songs with his Brian Setzer Orchestra when he left the stage Monday night during a sold-out concert at Isleta Resort and Casino.

 

Let's keep him in our thoughts and prayers.

flyingarmadillo, thanks for the good news, we have lost so many greats this year, I just want 2009 to be done.

 

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- Grammy Award-winner Brian Setzer was unable to complete a performance in Albuquerque and was briefly hospitalized because of dehydration, high altitude sickness

and vertigo.

 

But a posting on his Web site says Setzer recovered quickly and will perform as scheduled Tuesday night in Phoenix. The rest of his current tour will continue as planned.

 

Setzer is the former frontman of the Stray Cats. He performed three Christmas-themed songs with his Brian Setzer Orchestra and then left the stage Monday night during a sold-out concert at Isleta Resort and Casino.

 

An announcer came on stage about 9 p.m. and said Setzer had been taken to a hospital.

I had a conference in Keystone, CO in August a few years ago. It happen to coincide with our 10 year marriage anniversary. So I booked a reservation at the best restaurant in Breckenridge, which is very close to Keystone. During the day the wife and I decided to go hiking. This was her first time in CO. I'd be there many times and knew to drink a lot of Gatorade. I easily drank a gallon of it during our hike, but she didn't do it. So that night at the restaurant there we are all set for a romantic dinner when my wife says "I feel ill and need to go back to the hotel." She got a "mild" case of altitude sickness. It was not fun for her at all. The really strange thing is that they didn't deliver oxygen to Keystone. To this day I still don't know why....

Rocketman...

 

No O2 'cuz the locals don't need it.

 

Tell yah' date=' though, it's something visitors oughta think about. I'm only at some 3,000 feet, and I can feel the diff at my brother's place that's a bit over 5...[/quote']

 

Yeah it's amazing how much ones feels even a small altitude change. I took the t-bar up the mountain to the peak at Breckenridge one time. I hadn't been skiing in a while and got very nervous when I saw the "experienced skiers only" with the usual "you will die if you aren't good" warning under the sign. The "good" news for me was that when I got to the top I had a real hard time breathing because of the altitude change. It was so bad that I didn't even think about the situation I put myself into. I just wanted to get down the mountain so that I could breath again. Fortunately, I went down just fine without falling...

Most people do fine when the come to colorado the first time as long as they drink plenty of water.

my Doc told me that for those who move here from lower altitude that it takes around 6 months for your body to regularly produce more red blood cells to compensate for the lack of oxygen.
