Louis Pain: One day out of the hospital after a major heart attack...and a new album Coffeeshop Conversations @ Catfish Lou's #188

By TOM D'ANTONI // Louis Pain had a major heart attack on a gig over the weekend, but he's here to talk about his new album and a couple of new stents.

Keyboardist Louis Pain was releasing a new album and I thought it would be a good idea to have him do an OMN Coffeeshop Conversation @ Catfish Lou’s so we scheduled for this week.

And then last weekend, while playing a gig at Bluehour, he had a heart attack and almost died. I was ready to postpone but his wife Tracy Turner-Pain said nope, she’ll drive him.

I said what? She said yep. So here he is  at Catfish Lou’s, 2460 NW 24th St, twenty four hours after he was released from the hospital with two stents in him after having what is known as a widow maker heart attack.

Hard to believe, I know. We’ll finish with a tune from the new album, but with the whole story is Louis Pain.

Here is his GoFundMe page if you want to help out with his recovery.
