Foreigner Star Diagnosed With Cancer

(Classic Rock) Foreigner keyboardist Michael Bluestein has been forced to bow out of the band's upcoming US tour after being diagnosed with colon cancer.

He'll take an indefinite break while he undergoes 28 radiotherapy sessions but reports his illness was discovered early enough to be successfully treated. It follows Foreigner mainman Mick Jones' heart surgery in February.

"I recently went to the hospital following some symptoms and it was discovered I have colorectal cancer. This has required me to take a leave of absence from the band for a significant period," Bluestein says. "The good news is that I caught this early enough so that through chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, I will be able to treat this and return to normal life after it's over. And of course, normal life for me includes rocking with Foreigner."
