Default Richard Dashut Health

I used the Search function here and couldn't find any threads with the answer to my question. I'm obviously behind a little, but does anyone know what has stricken Richard Dashut? I've read through the posts on his Facebook page but couldn't tell and I haven't used Twitter in years, so that won't be of help. Sometimes I'm not a good fisher of answers. I feel bad now. I've been rereading Ken's book on the making of Rumours and the way he talks about Richard just cracks me up. It was a shock to see the recent pictures of Richard. I just want to hug him now, but will settle for sending up prayers. Thanks for any info.

dunno if there's something more recent, but he at some point had been in a particularly bad car crash that left him in a lot of pain and possibly with some mobility issues. He often uses a cane. Maybe someone else knows more.

He was in a wheelchair at that last FM show.

Idk if the car wreck was the cause of all his health issues or not...

Too bad it didn't happen to someone mean, instead.

I get a sense of the unsung hero about him. He seems almost like the exact opposite of Ken, personality-wise. Richard has put in so many years with this band, you would think if he hadn't developed a massively thick skin in that time, he would have been out long ago, but I understand that feeling of the need to stick with something you may not entirely love because you need that bread and butter. At any rate, it doesn't look like he's going to write a book and that it was a struggle making that decision, while Ken is busy writing his second one. Makes me wonder if Richard is also struggling financially. Anyway, it's just sad to see this happen to someone who was so much the fabric of Mac's very long heyday. I won't speculate on how the band has been treating him... would likely be a big can of worms that doesn't need to be opened up.

Richard if you are out there, know you are much loved by the fans. We hope for the best for you and don't hesitate to put up a GoFundMe if you need to.
