Foreigner guitarist recovering from heart surgery

Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones is reportedly recovering well following heart surgery in Miami.

The New York Post reports Jones underwent aortoiliac bypass surgery in Miami and sources tell the paper that the rocker is “already up and walking around” after undergoing the operation at Mount Sinai Hospital this week.

Mick's procedure involved using a shunt to unite the aorta and iliac artery to relieve obstruction.

A source tells the Post that Jones “is doing great and can’t wait to get back onstage.”

Foreigner return to the road for US dates starting March 1.
