A posting on Sinfield's Facebook page on Thursday made the announcement but did not go into details on when the attack occurred or much about his condition other than it was "non-fatal."
Dear Followers, we have been patiently awaiting the return of Peter here at Song Soup on Sea for the past fortnight, following a non-fatal heart-attack from which he is recovering well in the local hospital. Any well wishes will be passed on and he looks forward to returning home shortly.Sinfield joined what would become King Crimson in 1968, working primarily as their lyricist although he did play some synthesizer on their albums. Among the songs he co-wrote while with group were 21st Century Schizoid Man, The Court of the Crimson King and In the Wake of Poseidon.
He later went on to produce the debut album for Roxy Music and write for Emerson, Lake and Palmer (C'est La Vie, Karn Evil Nine), a solo Greg Lake (I Believe in Father Christmas), Gary Brooker, Bucks Fizz (The Land of Make Believe), Cher (Heart of Stone), Celine Dion (Think Twice) and many more. Sinfield also recorded a solo album, Still, in 1973.
