Prince's former drummer BOBBY Z is fighting for his life after suffering a massive heart attack.
The former Revolution star, real name Robert Rivkin, is in critical condition after collapsing last weekend (29-30Jan11), according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Doctors have been able to clear two of three blocked arteries and they are currently waiting for the 55 year old to regain some strength before continuing treatment.
His son Adam tells the newspaper, "They wanted him to get stronger in order to go through the final phase and take care of the third one.
"He's in critical condition and resting. He needs to build his strength so his heart can work on its own."
Rivkin was Prince's original drummer in the Revolution. He was replaced in the band by Sheila E.
