Barry G's stroke of luck
Contrary to rumours that he is infected with HIV, radio entrepreneur Barrington 'Barry G' Gordon is now recovering from a severe stroke he recently suffered.
Barry G, 50, has been involved in media since the 1970s, having worked at JBC (now RJR). The former disc jock was hospitalised in Florida about two weeks ago after he suffered a stroke while on a flight from Montego Bay to Florida.
With a stutter in his voice Barry G told the STAR, "I was airborne when I wanted to use the restroom, I felt like I was stumbling - my wife had to assist me." He had to be wheelchaired off the plane and immediately taken to a hospital.
Since the stroke, he has been experiencing speech difficulties and constant hiccups. he has also been unable to walk upright.
Happy to be alive
However, he says is happy to be alive. "The doctors have told me how lucky I've been. Many people haven't survived it or they have serious deformities, brain damage, the most severe consequence having been a lasting coma," he said.
While the doctors have not been able to pinpoint the source of the stroke, they have the ex-DJ on medication, a strict diet and constant exercise.
This has set back his plans to make a comeback to radio, but Barry G says he is still optimistic.
"My major concern is not the stroke but the hiccup. My hiccup has been holding me off and I'm not as fluent as I should be," he said.
He is grateful for the warm response from his family, friends and fans, and is hoping for a quick recovery.
However, in the midst of his illness, Barry G was disheartened to hear rumours from back home about his hospitalisation.
"My associates in Jamaica tell me all sorts of rumours have been going around," he said. He elaborated that the rumours have said he has HIV, which is far from the truth. His family has not been talking about the incident to the public, but he says having a stroke is nothing to be embarrassed about.
He says that upon his return to Jamaica, he hopes to help others who have experienced this illness.
"We really have serious problems in Jamaica. If I survive I'd love to help people to get machines to do instant tests, which is completely lacking in Jamaica. While I have survived, many people in Jamaica have not. I would like to dedicate my life to helping people, to get the opportunity for higher assistance, " he said.

The entertainment industry has been flooded with rumours of Jamaican dancehall artistes and lovebirds Beenie Man and D’Angel signing a pre-nuptial agreement. The couple could not be reached for comments but according to a source at Shocking Vibes, there was no secret pre-nup between Beenie Man and D’Angel as a number of blogs on the internet have been implying.“We would have known about that because we would have been the ones to have approached a lawyer to get that done, there was no pre-nup that we know of, and people should leave Beenie Man alone so that he can give his marriage a chance to really work,” a high-ranking member of the Shocking Vibes executive told One876Entertainment.com.
Some of these entertainment blogs have made statements that if Beenie Man was smart he would have her sign the agreement as to cover his assets from the former lover of his main rival Bounty Killer.Beenie and D’Angel got married in August last year after a whirlwind courtship that graced the front pages of all the major tabloids in Jamaica and a considerable number of overseas media.
