MOTÖRHEAD Guitarist's Mother-In-Law Dies After Refusing Blood Transfusion

July 20, 2007

icWales reports that MOTÖRHEAD guitarist Phil Campbell's mother-in-law died after refusing a blood transfusion because it was against her religion.

Margaret Rose Cornelius, 72 and a grandmother of seven, died from a heart attack after a routine hip operation at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, Llantrisant.

Her daughter Gaynor Campbell, wife of the MOTÖRHEAD guitarist, today claimed Jehovah's Witness faith elders had visited Margaret in hospital to ensure she would stick to the religion's strict ban on receiving blood transfusions.

Gaynor, of Llantwit Fardre, near Pontypridd, believes she may have been able to persuade her mother to accept blood had religious leaders not intervened.

She and Phil were on holiday in Penzance when she received a chilling phone call.
