Stephen Stills, who had surgery for prostate cancer on his 63rd birthday, was expected to return home Friday, his wife said.

Stills, of Crosby, Stills & Nash (and sometimes with Neil Young), had the operation Thursday in Los Angeles, Kristen Stills, said in a statement.

"Stephen's procedure went remarkably well and he couldn't be better," she said. "He will be home by noon tomorrow and the pain will be minimal."

The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist is scheduled to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Utah for the Jan. 25 world premiere of "CSNY/Deja vu," the statement said. The movie was shot during the 2006 Freedom of Speech tour by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

Stills is scheduled for a North American solo tour this spring in support of his recent "Just Roll Tape" album.
