He will remain at the hospital for another day or two before returning home.

Mitchell has been a staple of the Canadian music scene for decades, first as the lead singer and guitarist for Max Webster in the 1970s before going solo.

Some of his best-known hits include “Go For Soda,” “Patio Lanterns” and “I Am A Wild Party.”

Last year, Mitchell left Toronto classic rock radio station Q107, where he worked for about 11 years.
