Faulkner was taken to surgery, which eventually lasted up to 10.5 hours. The band’s upcoming tour was then postponed to give Faulkner time to recover. Faulkner underwent surgery at a hospital in Louisville.

Now, in a recent video chat, Faulkner has expressed his gratitude to the heart surgeon who operated on him, Dr Siddharth Pahwa. Faulkner thanks the doctor for saving his life.
