(Metal Hammer) Eyehategod frontman Mike Williams has undergone a successful liver transplant. Mike's wife, Michelle Maher-Williams, says a donor match was found on Wednesday, and the operation was carried out hours later.

She adds: "Everything went well. New liver is functioning and making bile. They're taking him to ICU now and I can see him in about an hour." The news comes less than a month after the crowdfunding campaign she launched to help pay for her husband's life-saving treatment smashed its $50,000 target. According to Maher-Williams, the singer was staying in hospital and was not allowed a transplant until a number of medical bills were settled.

So far, more than 2000 people have contributed to the fund. The Williams are still taking donations on the YouCaring page, with anything over and above that will be used for any other medical expenses going forward. Read more here.
