Mumford and Sons star Ted Dwane home after brain surgery

Mumford & Sons star Ted Dwane is at home recovering after having brain surgery.

The 28-year-old bassist had emergency surgery last week after a scan revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain, but he is now convalescing and has thanked fans for their messages of support.

In a posting on the band's website - accompanied by a picture of him sporting a shaved head - he revealed: "Bear with a sore head! Thanks so much for all the well wishing, it seems to be working! I'm home."

Dwane was discharged from hospital last Thursday (06.13.13) and the band - which also includes Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett and Winston Marshall - were pleased to report on his progress dubbing him a hero for the way he has handled the situation.

They also joked that it has been "medically proved" that he does have a brain.

Mumford & Sons cancelled several US dates on their 'Summer Stampede' tour including appearances at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

They are due to headline the final night of the Glastonbury music festival, which takes place over the weekend of Friday June 28 to Sunday June 30.

The recent discovery of even more Dylan writings from that fruitful period has helped inspire an unusual project: The New Basement Tapes, ...

Richard Hawley: The Complete Guide

Oct 27 2014 4:31am CDT | Source: Clash Music

As his early LPs are reissued…Across the 13 years of Richard Hawley’s solo career to date, he has never been in step with the times. He has never clambered aboard a passing bandwagon, nor given much thought to the upper echelons of the charts. Instead, he has quietly gone about building up a body of work so consistently excellent that it’s hard to believe he’s not huge. Today, his first three titles are reissued on CD and vinyl, marking the first ...

By Scott T. Sterling Earlier this year, it was revealed that London’s iconic Battersea Power Station was set to be demolished to make room for a “mixed use facility” that will include luxury villas.
