Bad Company guitarist Mick Ralphs has unfortunately and sadly suffered a stroke, just days after the band completed their 'Swn Song' UK tour.

An official statement released by the bad reads as follows:

"Following the Bad Company UK tour that wound up last Saturday at London's 02 Arena, the family and representatives of the band's co-founder, guitarist and songwriter Mick Ralphs are sad to announce that Mick has suffered a stroke.

"Mick is receiving excellent medical care and is recovering in hospital, although all his public engagements are necessarily on hold, pending his improvement.

"Everyone is wishing Mick a speedy recovery, and further news will be announced at the appropriate time."

Ralphs, 72, sat out Bad Company's earlier summer dates across the US and was replaced by former Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson.

He said at the time: "I've decided to sit this upcoming US tour out. The travel required to do these dates is something I'm just not feeling up for at the moment. I'm glad the band found Rich to take my place for this run. I'm sure he'll be great."

We wish Mick all the very best.
