News from the World of Blood Clots and Music

Motorhead’s Lemmy is not feeling well these days.  Earlier this year, he was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat that required an implanted cardioverter-defibrillator to shock his ticker whenever it strays from a proper rhythm. 

His latest issue is some kind of blood clot–a hematoma–of some sort, somewhere in his body.  We’re not sure where it is, how it formed (Injury? Congenital condition?) or how long Lemmy will be out of action. (Via Loudwire)

Still with the world of blood clots, Mumford & Sons will be back to perform at Glastonbury this week following emergency brain surgery on bassist Ted Dwane.  After falling ill on tour in the US–thankfully, they had out-of-country health insurance–doctors found a clot in his skull which required immediate removal.

Ted’s recovering nicely, although his head still hurts from the hole they had to drill.  He posted a picture the other day.  See the scars?
