    Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton is recovering after undergoing cancer surgery on his throat! We're glad to hear he is RECOVERING!

    Hamilton battled tongue cancer (like Eddie Van Halen) back in 2006, but the disease returned and spread to his voicebox. He underwent a radical new laser procedure to zap the cancerous cells in San Antonio, Texas last week. The surgery was risky, since it could have completely and totally robbed him of his voice. But with a big risk comes a bigger reward.

    Hamilton told KSAT.com, "I was just terrified. I really thought, 'Oh, I am looking at not being able to talk.'" He described the procedure and post-op, saying, "The second I had a tiny bit of consciousness, the first thing I did was make a sound, and it felt normal, and it sounded normal."

    Get better soon, Tom!
