Mumford bassist hospitalized with blood clot

Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane received emergency treatment on Monday after doctors discovered that the musician had a blood clot on the surface of his brain.

As the Grammy-winning group explains in a statement on its website, Ted had been "feeling unwell for days," and went into the hospital yesterday for treatment and was sent into surgery after scans uncovered the clot.

"Ted is receiving excellent care, and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery," the band says in the online statement.

But as a result of the medical emergency, Mumford & Sons will have to reschedule three performances that were planned for this week: tonight's show in Dallas; Wednesday's gig in Woodlands, Texas; and Thursday's stop in New Orleans.

If you've already bought tickets for one of those events, hold on to them, because they'll be honored at the rescheduled performances, dates for which will be announced as soon as possible.

"We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour," the band, which is expected to play the Bonnaroo music festival on Saturday, said. "We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery."

    "Feeling unwell for days" sure doesn't tell us a whole lot. What were his symptoms? Perhaps letting us know what he was experiencing can help many more people and save some lives.

    Good luck to him. I had a stroke saturday night after having small clot in my brain stem. I am recovering well and can walk / talk / type but can still not swallow. This is very, very, very scary and I wish him well. I would never wish this on anyone and all I can say if you smoke cigs, crush them right now and never pick up again.

    "Surgery" doesn't always mean open skull. Sometimes they just mean they injected some medication into the area – a procedure that could be recovered from within that amount of time. But, it is possible that they will have a fill-in.

    How can one undergo brain surgery and be able to play that weekend? They will either have a fill in bassist for 'Roo or they aint playing.
