Calvin Harris died in 2014 before being resuscitated


2014 was an "interesting" year for Calvin Harris.

The DJ recently shared on Twitter that he had a very serious health scare at the end of the year.

"Interesting year for me 2014, started with me knocking myself off number 1 in the UK and ended with my heart getting restarted in the ER," he wrote, commenting on Dancing Astronaut's tweet of him playing a set in 2014, "this sort of stuff happened in between."

The 36-year-old, who was later diagnosed with arrhythmia – the irregular or abnormal beating of the heart – at the time of the incident, cancelled several gigs and eluded to having "heart problems". Upon his diagnosis, he gave up alcohol to prevent the symptoms, reports E! News.

Before his sobriety he would drink two bottles of Jack Daniel's before every set, he said back in 2018.

"The last thing I want to do is down 2 bottles of jack daniels a night, live on greggs pasties and sleep on an absolutely stinking bus all year, scream down a mic for 55 minutes and pretend to play a keyboard 5x a week those days are behind me son," he told a fan on Twitter.
