Calvin Harris Remembers Dying In 2014 But Doctor ‘’Restarted’’ His Heart
Famous DJ and song producer, Calvin Harris, recalls how he almost didn’t survive a serious heart issue that forced him to pull out of appearances at the end of 2014. The 35 years old DJ took to Twitter on May 19 to reminisce on that year of his life after a fan posted a throwback video of his Electric Daisy Carnival set from that summer.
“Interesting year for me, 2014,” Calvin responded. “Started with me knocking myself off number 1 in the UK and ended with my heart getting restarted in the ER…this sort of stuff happened in between.”

This is the first time that Calvin has opened up about just how serious his heart problems were. Back in Nov. 2014, he was scheduled to perform at the MTV Europe Music Awards, but pulled out at the last minute. At the time, he tweeted (now deleted), “No EMAs for me this weekend. Got some heart problem. Heading home to see if it can be fixed x.” He never commented further on the situation and did not share the scary details of his near-death experience until six years later.

The tweet, as expected, sparked major concern amongst fans, who were completely unaware that Calvin had dealt with something so serious during one of the biggest years of his career. “I remember!” one fan responded. “All that you said was you had heart problems to fix but damn! You never said your heart needed to be restarted!” Another added, “Calvin, you can’t just say something like that and not tell the story. That’s just rude.”
In 2015, he went on to release songs like “Outside” featuring Ellie Goulding and “How Deep Is Your Love” with Disciples. So, let’s hope everything is now good for Calvin and that he is healthier than ever.
