Rock vet Kenney Jones revealed that he had been battling prostate cancer. He appears to be on the mend.
The drummer, who has done time with The Who and The Faces, learned he was sick last September, which is when his mother, who was 89 at the time, was dying. What a double blow.
"It's been a huge shock and I had some dark moments," Jones told The Daily Mail.
Jones has been undergoing an innovative treatment called brachytherapy, which is a form of internal radiotherapy.
Jones is in recovery and is working to raise awareness for the disease.
"I want to increase awareness – a man dies of prostate cancer every hour in the U.K," Jones said. "Now is the time for me to enjoy my wife and family in a more relaxed way. I intend to live to a ripe old age."
Amen to that, Kenny Jones.
