Post Scott McCaughey

"Scott McCaughey, the ever-smiling, sunglasses-wearing front man of the bands The Minus 5 and the Young Fresh Fellows, and side man to countless bands — including M. Ward, The Baseball Project, Tired Pony, and R.E.M. — suffered a stroke while on a West Coast tour with Alejandro Escovedo.

He is in stable condition.
Loved by many and a best friend to all, Scott brings a very bright light to the stage. In his ever-changing hats and loud sports coats, Scott exudes such joy while he performs.
“Scott McCaughey is one of the unsung heroes of rock n roll. A true believer and one of the most creative people I have ever met.” says guitarist Peter Buck.
The road to recovery will be a long one, and we believe it will come through music. We can’t wait to see him back in action. The collective energy of the entire creative community is powerful enough to overcome this hurdle. With the love and support of all of you, Scott will be continue to share his love of music with the world. We promise to provide continued updates and will share any messages of support you want to send with him.
Sent with love from Mary Winzig (Scott McCaughey’s wife) and the entire R.E.M. community."

Bummed to hear this, i spoke with Scott briefly at the Boom Boom Room prior to Ian's September gig in San Francisco. Hope he can make a full recovery.

This explains the why AE's Bay Area gigs were cancelled.

Check out Alejandro's FB for a post describing how he and Scott originally hooked up based on a mutual love of Mott the Hoople. A great, versatile musician and wonderfully quirky fellow. Hang in Scott and best wishes for a full recovery.
