Mumford and Sons Glastonbury show to go ahead

Jun 25 2013, 5:34am CDT | by

Mumford and Sons will play Glastonbury despite bassist Ted Dwane undergoing emergency brain surgery two weeks ago.

'The Cave' rockers' headlining appearance at the British event on Sunday (30.06.13) was thrown into doubt when Ted was rushed to hospital on June 10 to have the blood clot removed, but he has since made a speedy recovery.

Keyboard player Ben Lovett told Radio Times magazine: "To be honest, Ted dealt with the whole thing better than any of us could have imagined.

"And I don't think there's any need to dramatise what is obviously a very dramatic situation.

"All we feel is incredibly grateful and happy that he's going to be OK, and that we're going to get back out on that stage at Glastonbury as four brothers and do what we do."

Mumford & Sons - which also includes singer Marcus Mumford and banjo player Winston Marshall - first played Glastonbury in 2008 and have appeared at the festival every year since.

Ben added: "Whenever we tour elsewhere then come back to Glastonbury it always reminds us of how great it is to be British, and what a great British institution it is."

Mumford and Sons will be joined in headlining Glastonbury by Arctic Monkeys and The Rolling Stones.

Folk-driven Irish duo return...It's a remarkable facet of the current folk boom that so much of it is divorced from trad's celtic roots. Mumford & Sons may aim to sound like a group from rural Ireland, yet nobody within the group owes a serious debt to the Emerald Isle. Which is why The Lost Brothers are so vital. Amid a scene which cloaks itself in a veil of authenticity, the group actually walk it like ...

British rock music is back. No, really, it is.

Sep 4 2014 8:53am CDT | Source: Music Week

There is little more tedious than hearing some hoary old industry sage tell you that ‘rock music is dead’. Then, sure as the BBC turning up early at a Yewtree raid, will follow the bullshit Yin to that Yang: managers of young noise-rampant oiks who are, like, totally going to show the world why ROCK IS BACK! The only way to prove or disprove each hypothesis is with the combative antagonist’s kryptonite - solid, square data - and, well, statistics are usually fence-sitting old buggers. ...
