Aerosmith Bassist Says He’s Cancer-Free
Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton has declared that he's cancer free, according to Gibson.com. Hamilton, who was diagnosed in 2006 with both throat and tongue cancer, battled back against the disease only to see it return in 2009. Now, Hamilton finally received a clean bill of health. Hamilton passed the good news on to BackstageAxxess.com, saying, "I'm feeling really good. The doctor who treated me in 2009 said, 'Listen, I can help you in a way that is going to preserve your way of life. But you're going to have to come in here a lot afterwards for a long time.' I said, 'Sign me up!' I go in there about every two to three months. I get looked at by having the doctor put a scope down my throat. It's a nerve-wracking process, but I don't have to worry about it for a couple of months and I'm feeling great."
