Rockers The Replacements have reunited to record a limited edition Ep to raise money for the band's former guitarist as he recovers from a stroke.

The band now only boasts two of its original members, singer Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson, after drummer Chris Mars opted out of taking part in the project.

They plan to auction off 250 copies of a vinyl Ep to raise funds to help the group's former guitarist Slim Dunlap pay for his medical treatment after he suffered a debilitating stroke earlier this year (Feb12).

Westerberg tells Rolling Stone magazine, "He's in rough shape. He's sort of paralysed, he can move his leg a little bit. When I mentioned this, it seemed like something he really wanted to happen. 'You guys get together,' he said in a whisper. 'Go play a song.'"
