Mumford Bassist Takes the Stage After Brain Surgery

Mumford and Sons had a triumphant reunion with bass player Ted Dwane on Sunday when he joined them at Britain's massive Glastonbury Festival -- just weeks after undergoing brain surgery.

The band, which closed the festival before a crowd estimated at 80,000 strong, had suggested it was prepared to cancel the appearance if Dwane had suffered any setback in his recovery. Keyboard player Ben Lovett told the BBC, "Was the show ever in doubt? I think it's fair to say it was. Nothing was more important than Ted's health."

Mumford and Sons first played Glastonburyin 2008, drawing just 200 people to their stage that time around.
