Les Beasley in Louisville Hospital

According to a report that went out yesterday morning (link requires Facebook login), Les Beasley had been admitted to the Jewish Hospital in Louisville with pneumonia and congestive heart failure. An update yesterday evening clarified that Beasley was not in intensive care and was ambulatory. The hospital staff is hoping to be able to send him home to Florida by Friday or Saturday.

Beasley, former Florida Boys lead singer and manager, was in Louisville for an NQC Board meeting, probably the meeting at which they approved extending the contract with Freedom Hall till 2014.
