Josh Abbott Band front man, Josh Abbott, is asking friends and fans for prayers following the stroke his father suffered last week.

Abbott says via Instagram that his dad isn’t doing well, saying he suffered a stroke on Feb. 9, but he didn’t recognize its effects until two days later.

UPDATE:

From his original Instagram post: "This guy needs your prayers, thoughts, good vibes, or whatever you want to send his way...Dad had a stroke last Thursday and isn't doing well. The effects were delayed and hit hard Saturday. Tell your family you love them. You just never know what can happen and then it might be too late."
