Musician David Crosby is recovering after undergoing surgery Friday to open a blocked heart artery.
 
A statement said that Crosby, 72, did not have a heart attack but would have been at high risk for one if he hadn't heeded his doctor's advice to have the procedure, in which the blockage was removed and two stents were put in place to keep the artery open, CBS News reported.

"I am very glad that I listened to my doctors and my family. It seems I am once again a very lucky man," Crosby said in the statement.

He is expected to make a full recovery. He had to postpone some upcoming shows but plans to begin touring with Crosby, Stills & Nash next month. Crosby, who has type 2 diabetes, had a liver transplant in 1994, CBS News reported.
