Stryper’s Oz Fox health is improving, following the brain surgery he underwent 2 months ago.
Michael Sweet made an update about the guitarist health state:
“He’s doing really well. Believe it or not, he bounced back so quick, and the surgery was flawless. He’s doing fantastic. Obviously, the big scare was the ‘C’ word.
”Because it’s a low-grade tumor, we’re all assuming, and it’s not a hundred percent confirmed, but we’re pretty certain it’s not cancer, which is great news. He has another surgery to get through, and that is happening probably sometime in July, maybe August. And that could be potentially a 12-week, 16-week healing process — recovery.”
According to Sweet, Oz is feeling strong enough to partake in a couple of livestreams next month at SpiritHouse studios in Northampton, Massachusetts.
“In between surgeries, in just three weeks, they’re all coming out here [to Massachusetts], and we’re gonna rehearse and do two live albums at the studio we record at — get that done before his surgery.
And he wants to do that — we’re not forcing him to do that. He’s ready and willing to do that.”
