While overseas in Belarus, singer Joe Lynn Turner was hospitalized for what is being described as a “heart issue.”

The Russian state news agency RIA Novosti was the first to report the news, stating that the onetime Deep Purple and Rainbow vocalist was “stable” after being treated at a Minsk facility for “myocardial infarction,” which is also known as a heart attack. A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health stated that the vocalist was transported by ambulance to the hospital and that he’ll continue to receive treatment.

One of Turner’s peers, Graham Bonnet, also commented on the news via social media sharing a photo of he and Turner together and adding, “My friend Joe was hospitalized in Minsk with a heart issue last night and myself, Beth-Ami and the rest of the Graham Bonnet Band wish him a complete and speedy recovery. We love you, Joe.”

The singer also received well wishes from vocalist Jeff Scott Soto, as seen in the tweet below.
