    The Charlatans drummer Jon Brookes released a lengthy statement regarding his on-stage collapse in Philadelphia last month via the band's website. He thanked fans for their outpouring of support and revealed that he had a seizure on stage and that a brain tumor was the cause.

    Brookes said that his "my memory is patchy but I can still hear the screams of my own voice echoing out as I felt hands struggle to hold me still as I was attended to by friends and paramedics alike" about the night he collapsed.

    The tumor was removed.

    The band's singer Tim Burgess had already recently revealed that Brookes could return to playing for the band within six weeks. His current temporary replacement is ex-Verve member Pete Salisbury.

    Best wishes for a super speedy recovery for Brookes.

    Have you sent out good thoughts and prayers to Brookes?
