Actually with a full recovery he'll be healthier than he was before. That's what happened with my grandpa after he had his double bypass. With the bypass, the blood will be able to circulate through his system much better than before and he should be able to tour again. Touring will help his health since he'll burn a lot of calories up on stage. I wonder if the reason his arteries became so blocked had something to do with not touring for the last 5 years or so and doing nothing but sitting around because of his back problems?
I'd still give it a year or two before we hear anything about a tour.
