British rocker VINI REILLY has lost some feeling in his left hand after suffering a stroke.
The Durutti Column frontman, 57, was hospitalised for four days after falling ill but discharged himself and is now recovering at home. It is not known when the stroke happened.
According to the band's official website, the guitarist and pianist has lost some use of his left hand but is determined to return to music and has been playing his guitar.
A message on the website reads, "Vini Reilly recently suffered a minor stroke but after four days in hospital and then discharging himself he is well on the road to recovery.
"He's slightly unsteady on his feet and has lost some feeling in his left hand but is in good spirits, has been regularly playing his Juan Montero Spanish guitar and is steadily rebuilding his strength."
