In June, Mumford & Sons postponed several tour dates when bassist Ted Dwane was taken to the hospital after a blood clot was discovered on the surface of his brain. Now fully recovered, Dwane and Marcus Mumford talked with Chicago radio station WXRT (a Radio.com station) about the medical scare before their headlining set this past Saturday (Aug. 3) at Lollapalooza.
Dwane confessed that he didn’t know what was happening other than suffering from “a brutal headache.”
“It’s a bit of a weird one. I think it happened during a gig. We didn’t know what it was for about ten days so we just cracked on, did a bunch more shows.” Dwane said. “Eventually they put me in a scanner and found it and operated the next day. We had to reschedule a few gigs. But apart from that, all is well.”
Marcus Mumford remains impressed at Dwane’s ability to keep performing despite the blood clot that formed.
“He was a brave little bunny,” Mumford added. “He played to over 100,000 people that week with that thing in his head. Badass.”
