As previously reported, McCullough suffered a heart attack last November.  Seiwell gave the website the sad update on the guitarist's condition, resulting, he said, from a lack of oxygen to McCollough's brain during the heart attack. He says the McCullough's long time partner Josie is praying for a miracle. "Josie is very hopeful,” Seiwell says, “but some of the doctors, according to friends, don’t think that he’s going to have much of a recovery. He’s going to need constant care the rest of his life.”

The 69-year-old musician played with Paul McCartney and Wings from 1971-73 and was a member of Joe Cocker’s Grease Band and Spooky Tooth.  He also performed with Cocker  at the Woodstock festival in 1969.
