Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood recovering after lung surgery

Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is recovering following surgery to remove a small lesion from his lungs that was discovered during a routine screening.

The rocker – who turns 70 next week – is expected to make a full recovery ahead of the band’s fall European tour as no additional treatment is necessary.

“I’m so grateful for modern screening which picked this up so early,” says Wood, “and would like to thank all the doctors who treated me.”

The Rolling Stones will begin the No Filter European tour at the Stadtpark in Hamburg, Germany on September 9.

The month-long run will also make stops in Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Holland, Denmark and Sweden before it wraps up with the second of two shows at the new U Arena in Paris, France on October 22.
