Veteran Foreigner founder/guitarist Mick Jones is recovering from heart surgery, following illness that had caused him to miss a number of recent Foreigner shows.

Jones had a bypass procedure at Miami Beach’s Mount Sinai Heart Institute earlier this week, according to Page Six. Sources say that the surgery “was more urgent because Mick had needed it for some time.”

Reportedly, Jones, who recently turned 67, is recovering well from the surgery and was moved out of intensive care recently. His former wife Ann Dexter-Jones and their two children Anabelle and Alexander Dexter-Jones are by his side as he begins his recovery.

Foreigner toured successfully last summer with Journey and Night Ranger, but Jones was forced to miss some of the shows due to his illness. A planned acoustic tour in support of their recent ‘Acoustique’ release was reconfigured and converted into regular electric shows with a stand-in guitarist when it became apparent that Jones would not be able to make the dates.

Our best wishes go out to Mick Jones for a speedy recovery!
