Veteran Welsh entertainer Max Boyce feels he has been given a second chance at life after undergoing major heart surgery.

The singer/funnyman, 70, had a quadruple heart bypass last month (Jun14) and he has praised doctors at a hospital in Cardiff, Wales for the successful operation.

He tells, "I feel like I've been given a second chance at life."

Boyce has axed a 13-date tour scheduled for later this year (14) to recover. He hopes to be back onstage next year (15).
