Will White of the British electronica duo Propellerheads has

been hospitalized with a serious illness, causing the duo to cancel all of

its summer tour dates, according to the New Musical Express. The article quoted an

unnamed spokeswoman as saying, "Without wishing to discuss Will's health in

too much detail, he's been extremely unwell and he's in a hospital undergoing

treatment. Then he'll require quite a few months' convalescence. The most

important thing is to try and get him well again." Though the group was second on the bill when the Red Hot Chili Peppers performed at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., on June 12, just White's partner, Propellerheads DJ Alex Gifford appeared to spin records.
