Deep Purple drummer Ian Paice is recovering from a mini-stroke suffered while the band was on tour in Scandinavia last week.

Paice wrote on the band’s website he woke up last week with the right side of his body feeling numb, so he went to a hospital right away.

Paice says currently the right side of his face is slightly numb and his fingers tingle, but no serious damage.

He expects to have enough dexterity to return to touring next month. He says his one good finger is getting sore from typing thank-yous to all the well-wishers.
