Artis The Spoonman Suffers Serious Heart Attack

Jean Godden of the Seattle Times reports Artis the Spoonman, the man made famous by Soundgarden’s Grammy-winning song ‘Spoonman’, suffered a serious heart attack last Thursday, and is still in intensive care at Swedish Medical Center/ Providence Campus in Seattle. Artis’ friend Jim Page, who plays guitar and performs with Artis, often in front of Starbucks, is hoping MTV will let people know where to send a buck — to Artis the Spoonman Fund at any Key Bank — to help with the medical bills. Said Page, “Send much more than a buck and Artis probably wouldn’t accept.”
