The Berlin musician Frank Zander (81) was released after a week in the hospital. “The whole family is very, very happy that he was allowed to leave the hospital,” said son Marcus Zander when asked by the German Press Agency. The musician should then receive further treatment in January. “We are confident that he will be back to his old self.” Previously, the “B.Z.” reported about it.

Zander was taken to the hospital a week ago and treated at the Berlin Charité. His son Marcus explained that he was tired and weak and almost fell asleep while eating. Next Friday, the traditional Christmas party organized by Frank Zander for the homeless and needy in Berlin will take place again. If his father is well again, he will take part and at least briefly greet the guests on stage, said the son.
