Neckár was released home the very next day, and in September speculation about his health began for the second time. He was missing the unveiling of the memorial plaque of Oscar-winning director Jiří Menzel. He did not arrive at the event, because he had to undergo a medical examination.

“I’m still in the hospital,” admitted Václav Neckář to Expres, saying that it was just a simple inspection, which he has unfortunately been ordered to do and which are already a part of his life.

This was also confirmed by his brother Jan. Twenty years have passed since the fatal stroke. The singer was afflicted in 2002, and because of it, Neckář had to relearn his lyrics, speak at all and even sing again. Since then, he has been in the hands of doctors, constantly going for check-ups and undergoing various examinations.

Although he still has some difficulty speaking, he sings with ease. A reader made for him by his son Václav also contributes to his confidence on stage.

Václav Neckář has energy to perform.

Since the speculation about his health, the musician appeared in public for the first time ever at the prize-giving ceremony as part of the Send a Message with a Story competition, which also produced a book.

He refuted all speculations about his poor health, yet he admitted to the Expres.cz editors that he will undergo a minor operation in the near future.
