For something more positive, how about musicians who narrowly survived this year? I realise 2020's not over of course.

Will Carroll of Death Angel had a close one. Glad he's still alive as I saw them in concert in 2018 and I particularly like it if musicians I've seen live stick around and maybe tour here again.

"While in the coma, Carroll said he had dreams of visiting the afterlife. He saw himself leave his body and plummet down to hell, where Satan — a woman in his case — punished him for the deadly sin of sloth, morphing him into a Jabba the Hutt-like monster who vomited blood until he had a heart attack."

Maynard James Keenan of Tool says he's still dealing with residual effects after having had it in February:

The only guy(s) I know personally who've had it are one or two of the members of band Swallow the Rat, but haven't heard anything from them beyond this article:
