Joe Lynn Turner, who sang with both Deep Purple and Rainbow, has suffered a heart attack and is hospitalized in Minsk, Belarus.

RIA, the official Russian news agency, first reported the situation saying with a statement from the Ministry of Health of Belarus (translated), “Yesterday, a patient with myocardial infarction entered the hospital, he was treated with all possible modern methods, and now his condition is stable.”

Turner’s friend Graham Bonnet confirmed the situation, saying “My friend Joe was hospitalized in Minsk with a heart issue last night and myself, Beth-Ami [Heavenstone] and the rest of the Graham Bonnet Band wish him a complete and speedy recovery. We love you, Joe.”

Turner, 66, is married to Maya Kozyreva, a lawyer originally from Belarus and, according to the RIA report, they are considering moving to the country, a former part of the Soviet Union.

The singer started his career with the band Fandago before playing with Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow from 1980 to 1984. In 1990, he did a short stint in Deep Purple, recording just one album with the group, 1990’s Slaves & Masters. He has recorded ten solo albums and also recorded with Yngwie Malmsteen, Mother’s Army, Brazen Abbot, the Hughes Turner Project, Sunstorm and others.
