Ted Dwane, the bassist for popular English band Mumford & Sons, has been released from the hospital following a successful surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain.
“It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from the hospital and is on the road to a full recovery. The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress,” the band writes on its Facebook page.
“He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it is medically proved that he does indeed have a brain,” the band adds.
Dwane was hospitalized on June 11, causing the band to have to cancel shows in Texas and Louisiana throughout the week.
Based on doctor recommendations, the band has now canceled the remainder of its Summer Stampede Tour, including performances at the annual Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee.
“If we could’ve we would’ve, you know that about us. We trust that you
can respect our collective desire to encourage Ted to make a full
recovery, and that this is based purely on the medical advice we have
received,” writes the band.
