Mumford & Sons Bassist Hospitalized for Blood Clot on His Brain
According to an announcement on the band's website, Dwane was rushed to the hospital Monday after "feeling unwell for a few days." Scans soon revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain, which will require emergency surgery to remove.
As a result, the Grammy Award-winning quartet — which also includes Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett and Winston Marshal — has been forced to postpone three scheduled shows: in Dallas, Tx., Woodlands, Tx., and New Orleans, La. The bands says make-up shows will be announced as soon as possible.
But the folk-rockers have no further plans to call off other appearances, such as their headlining gig Saturday at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn.
"Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery," the statement added. "We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery."
