Billy J. Kramer has taken to Facebook to discuss a recent health crisis.
According to Kramer's post, he recently had minor surgery on his right hand; however, as happens on occasion in hospitals, he contracted a staph infection. Kramer ended up back in the hospital for twelve days as doctor's tried to stop the infection and, even when he was released, had an antibiotic drip for a number of months.
Kramer says he is now fully recovered but he is yet to schedule any new performances. Earlier this year, in May, Billy published his autobiography, Do You Want to Know a Secret?. In 2014, he released his first album in decades, I Won the Fight.
