This summer, Nick Barker, ex Cradle of Filth and current Dimmu Borgir and Brujeria drummer, shared that he was diagnosed with kidney failure. Recently, he gave an update on how he’s doing on the Royalty Free Radio show.
About his current health situation, Barker says:
“I’m feeling great. I’ve got dialysis treatment first thing in the morning. I get picked up at six; I’m plugged in by seven, and I’m back home for around lunchtime. Yeah, I’m doing okay.
“Treatment has its ups and downs. Sometimes it can wipe you out physically; you feel completely drained. And other times you feel great. It’s a bit of a roller coaster. But I’m doing great. I’m keeping positive, and I’m working towards getting a transplant as soon as possible… I’m really working on getting my health back on track. And I hope to be back behind the drum kit and touring the world again very soon. And I’m gonna come back with a bang.”
Those who want to support Barker can donate to his GoFundMe to help him reach his goal of treatment.
