Kompas.com reported that the keyboardist has been living with diabetes for over 15 years.

Jockie was scheduled to get a liver examination, as he had been vomiting blood and had a low hemoglobin count. He also reportedly needed a blood transfusion.

On Saturday, Jockie posted a status on Facebook, explaining that he, indeed, had a medical issue. However, he asked people not to exaggerate it and pray for him. (jes/asw)
