(New York-AP) -- Isaac Hanson, oldest member of pop group Hanson, has been hospitalized for a blood clot in his right arm.

Hanson's publicist, Jill Fritzo, says the 23-year-old musician had a venous clot, or thromboembolism. Fritzo says the condition apparently came from playing the guitar too much.

Fritzo says the Tulsa native will be in the hospital for a few days. She says he's uncomfortable, but he'll be fine.''

The Hanson trio, which includes brothers Taylor and Zac, had its biggest hit in 1997, when ``MMMBop'' helped ignite the boy band craze. They recently played Carnegie Hall as the final stop on their acoustic tour.

They've started their own record label, 3C-G records, and plan to release a new album in March.
