Mumford & Sons double bass player Ted Dwane has been hospitalised with a blood clot on his brain.
The band told fans via their facebook page: “Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment.
“The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.”
The band, who are on tour in the US, have postponed shows in Dallas on Tuesday, Woodlands on Wednesday, and New Orleans on Thursday.
Get well soon Ted from all of us at FFS.
