Television Personalities' Dan Treacy 'critically ill' and in hospital

Cult frontman currently in intensive care and being treated in London

Television Personalities frontman Dan Treacy is critically ill and receiving treatment in hospital, NME has been told.

The cult singer-songwriter – whose first full-length Television Personalities album 'And Don't The Kids Just Love It' was released in 1980 – is currently receiving treatment in intensive care after undergoing major surgery to remove a blood clot to his brain, and has been in an induced coma for the last 48 hours.

At present, it is unclear as how Treacy sustained the injury, but a police investigation is reportedly underway.

A statement released by Television Personalities members TexasBob Juarez, Mike Stone and Arnau Obiols said:

"The band is very much concerned for our dear friend and Brother Daniel at this time, and we are all praying for a recovery."

(i'm the new boy, and to be honest, i only dropped by to add my two penn'orth to this thread, but found out that i had to join up.
So, i'm happily joined up.)

i heard about Dan's situation on another forum i post on last saturday and i've been deeply affected and saddened by the news.

Much like Womble, i'm a non-Faceb**k user, so Paul's post was greatly appreciated!

My thoughts are with Patricia and all Dan's family, friends and all those who love and care about him.

There has been no change in Daniels condition as he is still on a ventilator and not responding to anything we must keep on praying that he opens his eyes and comes back to us all. I am with him everyday and have told him of all the love and prayers you have all sent him just in case he can hear me. We have been told it is a waiting game with no guarantees to the outcome. PLEASE KEEP PRAYING LOVE TO YOU ALL

Update from Patricia (Dan's sister) Sat 19 November

Today Daniel managed to open one eye for nearly 10mins on and off. He is aware of people around him and is starting to move his right hand fingers when asked, it takes a lot of effort and he cant always manage it but it is a start we never thought we would see. There are however a lot of other health issues on top of everything else and as i have said before we have been told there is no guarantee as to the long term outcome as the damage he suffered from the blood clot was so serious that it was only the fantastic efforts of the Neuro Surgeons that saved "Daniels" life . PLEASE keep praying that as each day passes Daniel gets stronger. I have told him of all the love he is being sent every day. GOD BLESS you all for your kind words. Much Love Patricia XXX

Thanks for the update.
Although still serious at least there is some signs of improvement in Dan's condition. I'll keep praying for him.
