Allen Mills recovering from back surgery

Allen MillsAllen Mills, founding member of the legendary Lost and Found, is recuperating in the hospital following back surgery yesterday. He had been experiencing some discomfort of late and had to bring his nephew, Jason Moore, along to play bass on some recent band shows.

He reports that the surgery went well, and that he hopes to be back home this Thursday.

Sammy Shelor, who visited Allen at the hospital yesterday afternoon, reported on Facebook that “Allen Mills is out of surgery, awake, and mean as ever!” Seems like a good sign.

With 8 weeks of scheduled time off for Lost and Found, Allen expects to be fit as a bass fiddle and ready to go by then.

He shared a word of gratitude for all the friends and fans who had reached out…

“Thanks to everyone for the prayers, kind comments, positive thoughts, shares, etc. We appreciate them!”

Well wishes can posted on Allen’s Facebook page.

Get well soon, Allen!
