UPDATE: Young Rocky icon airlifted after heart attack shock

UPDATE: 1.30pm 

BUSBY Marou's manager Josh Jones has confirmed that Jeremy Marou is on the mend in a Brisbane hospital after suffering from a heart attack last Wednesday. 

The singer was flown from Rockhampton to Brisbane's Prince Charles Hospital last week immediately following a game of Oztag. 

Josh said Jeremy, who is only 34, is in good spirits and is being well looked after by all the hospital staff. 

"Basically he had his right coronary artery blocked and they flew him down and straight into surgery," Josh revealed. 

"He has been really positive about it though and we expect him to get back up on his feet very soon. He actually says he feels better now than ever. 

"All jokes aside though, it was very serious and he has a family history of heart disease."  

EARLIER: 

ROCKHAMPTON'S Jeremy Marou is recovering well in hospital after suffering from a heart attack.

This morning via Facebook the band confirmed the one half of the region's favourite Blues and Roots duo was playing Oztag when he went down. He also suggested too much dugong was possibly to blame for the health scare.

The news comes days before the band were set to begin their national tour and it is unknown still if that will affect it.

The band have encouraged fans to send in their well-wishing thoughts and messages to a very bored Jeremy.

Jeremy posted on his personal Facebook to lighten the situation.    

"Hey all, Wednesday night I had a heart attack, common with 34-year-old men," he wrote.   

"I had a stint put in my heart two days ago and I'm feeling better than ever already.   

"Thanks to all the nurses and docs and you amazing people at the Royal Flying Doctors Service. You guys aren't paid enough.   

"I can't wait to be singing you all songs soon."
