Famed Black Sabbath Producer Tsangarides Recovering From Coma

(Classic Rock) Grammy-nominated British record producer Chris Tsangarides is now recovering from a medically induced coma in a Kent hospital, his family has confirmed.

He was admitted two weeks ago suffering from symptoms which suggested pneumonia, but he was later diagnosed with Legionnaires' disease, which he is thought to have contracted during a business trip.

Tsangarides, known for his work with Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore and The Quireboys, among many others, appeared in hit 2009 movie Anvil! The Story Of Anvil when he agreed to work on their album This Is Thirteen.

Specialists performed a lung bypass before moving him to a support unit in London. He has now been returned to Kent, where he's conscious and able to talk, although he remains in intensive care. Read what his wife had to say here.
