Nazareth Singer Dan McCafferty Retires Due To Health Issues

(Classic Rock) Nazareth singer Dan McCafferty has retired from the band as a result of the health issues which forced them to cancel two sets of live dates. The veteran vocalist collapsed on stage in Switzerland at the weekend, resulting in rumours that he'd had a stroke. Last month he collapsed in Canada. Both incidents caused the band to call off further appearances.

Now he's shouted down the stroke story but admits a lung disease has brought an end to his 45-year live career. McCafferty tells Classic Rock: "I've not had a stroke. That's completely untrue thank goodness and touch wood. I'm not in hospital in Switzerland at all. I don't know how these things get started.

"I've got Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and it's been getting worse over the years. You don't know when it's going to come on, but suddenly you can't breathe." He had a lot more to say.
