Former ANTHRAX and current RED LAMB guitarist Dan Spitz has posted the following message on his Facebook page:
“Jesus is the reason I still breathe.
“The heart [doctors] tell me I should be dead.
“I had a heart attack a few years back where my main artery to my heart was 98% closed. I have stents in my heart now.
“I’m blessed to breathe and feel love from all, I’m blessed to know adversity and plow through, I’m blessed to recognize betrayal and move on, I’m blessed to have my art to relieve my inner pain.
“Jesus gave me all I am, all I will be. I have no clue where he’ll take me. All I know is I walk by faith and not by site and take baby steps and drink baby milk. He’ll show me if I act and pursue diligently HIS way, and HIS footsteps, in HIS sand box I play…. Only.
“I love love.”
Spitz is a born-again Christian and Messianic Jew who, in interviews, has frequently cited his faith as an influential component to his life.
The musician and his wife, Candi, are raising two identical mirror image twin boys that both suffer from autism.
Spitz took part in the reunion of ANTHRAX‘s classic lineup in 2005 and 2006 but left the band after ANTHRAX‘s last split with singer Joey Belladonna.
