Rocker is recovering in an Arizona hospital after undergoing successful surgery to mend a hole in his heart. Doctors discovered the problem last year and the star checked into St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix for the procedure on Monday, January 24.

The operation has been hailed a success, and Michaels is under the observation of doctors in the intensive care unit, according to the Associated Press.

Michaels cheated death in 2010 when he suffered a brain haemorrhage. Medics discovered the heart condition while they were treating him. The surgery was aimed to plug the hole with a permanent device.
