Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit has been diagnosed with throat and neck cancer.

His assistant, Julie Freeman, tells us he received the diagnosis in October and had surgery in New York on November 17th. She says, “The good news is that the surgery was successful and Timothy has received a clean bill of health. The final pathology report stated that he appears to be cancer free, both in his throat and neck. He does not need to have chemo or radiation. Now he just has to keep an eye on things every month for about a year to be sure it stays away, and then not so often. Timothy is healing nicely, though his throat is still a bit sore, but he’s already out and about. He says that this has been a life changer in many ways, and that it has only bolstered his resolve to, in the words of [the late] Warren Zevon, ‘enjoy every sandwich.’” Schmit is 65.

If you would like send Schmit a card or letter, please send it to: Timothy B. Schmit c/o ETC 1100 Glendon Ave., Suite 2000, Los Angeles, CA 90024

Other artists who’ve had throat cancer include George Harrison and Levon Helm.
