(hennemusic) Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice has updated fans about his recovery following the news that he had experienced a stroke while the group was on tour in Europe.

Paice had originally revealed the news with the following: "On the morning of the 14th of June," explained Paice, "I woke up to find that the right side of my body was feeling numb and I could not control my right hand and fingers. So I had myself admitted to hospital where I was diagnosed with having suffered a 'mini stroke', or TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack)."

"The hospital staff in Stockholm were amazing and started my treatment straight away," he continued. "After both CT and MIR scans there was found to be no serious or permanent damage. As of this moment all I am suffering is a slightly numb right side of the face a tingling sensation in my right hand. My dexterity in the hand is coming back quickly and I fully expect to re commence touring next month. So now I have a set of tablets which have to be taken every day to ensure it doesnąt happen again!."

Paice has now shared an update on his progress with a message to fans. "A big thank you to all the people who have been in touch with me expressing their concern about my health," wrote the drummer. "I think you will appreciate that there have been too many to answer every one personally. So if I don't reply to you please accept my apologies, but there are only so many hours in a day! Also my one typing finger is having its own 'event' and is starting to get very sore.

"I knew I had a lot of friends around the world but never realized quite how many. Again thanks to you all and I will endeavor to keep you up to date with my progress which so far is great." Find out the details about their rescheduled dates here.
