Bad Company guitarist Mick Ralphs is in a hospital in England recovering from a stroke.

A statement on the band’s Facebook page says, “Following the Bad Company U.K. 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 he 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, who was previously in Mott the Hoople, has had numerous medical issues over the past few years. He is 72.
