Ted Dwane, bass player for Mumford and Sons was rushed to a hospital for emergency treatment yesterday. Doctors are treating him for blood clot on the brain.

The band issued a statement on its website, "Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment."

"The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation.  Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.

Mumford and Sons will be postponing their next few shows until they know more about Ted's recovery. They said that all tickets to upcoming shows will be honored at a later date.
