Portland-based musician Scott McCaughey, frontman for cult-favorite Pacific Northwest acts the Minus 5 and Young Fresh Fellows and longtime touring member of R.E.M., has suffered a stroke.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help assist with McCaughey's medical bills: https://www.gofundme.com/c3npfr-scott-m ... dical-fund

According to a post on the Minus 5 Facebook page, the stroke occurred during McCaughey's current West Coast run with singer-songwriter Alejandro Escovedo. He is reportedly in stable condition.

Among the many projects he currently contributes to, McCaughey is a member of Filthy Friends, the Portland supergroup featuring Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker and R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck.
