Collins Has Further Surgery

Scottish rocker EDWYN COLLINS has undergone further surgery in his gradual recovery from two near-fatal brain haemorrhages earlier this year (05).

The A GIRL LIKE YOU singer, who fronted ORANGE JUICE in the 1980s, suffered the first of two cerebral haemorrhages on 20 February (05).

Last Wednesday (13APR05), doctors performed another operation to remove a piece of Collins' cranium they had replaced earlier this month (APR05) after he contracted an infection.

Collins' wife GRACE MAXWELL writes on his website: "Well, Edwyn's surgery went off without incident. He was understandably wiped out for a couple of days. He still has some infection in there which they are doing battle with.

"His fighting powers against these predatory infections is consistently ridiculously strong but I'm sure you all get it when I say I'm right back in the worry zone.

"By the way, he has been singing these past few days. His tuning needs working on."
