Ronnie Wood says that his Rolling Stones bandmate Mick Jagger is “doing well” following heart surgery.
The Stones’ guitarist told Hello magazine that he and Keith Richards have been sending Jagger humorous homemade videos to help lift his spirits.
“Sally [Wood’s wife] and I went on a break to the Caribbean with Keith [Richards] and [his wife] Patti and sent him videos of us playing and singing get well songs on the guitar,” Woods said.
“That cracked him up,” he added. “We’re all so pleased that he’s doing well… He is doing really well. I spoke to him yesterday and he’s feeling great.”
The Stones had to postpone their tour earlier this month so that Jagger could undergo the procedure to replace a damaged heart valve. The surgery was successful, and the charismatic frontman was soon back on his feet.
“Thank you everyone for all your messages of support, I’m feeling much better now and on the mend,” he posted on Instagram in early April.
In a statement, the Stones said they will announce rescheduled dates for their upcoming US/Canada tour soon.
