Chris Bailey Of The Angels Dies Of Cancer

(Classic Rock) The Angels bassist Chris Bailey has died of cancer. He was 62. He bowed out of the Australian band in January in order to focus on his health battle. He'd known he was ill for some time, but only confirmed the news to fans as he announced his departure.

It followed former Angels frontman Doc Neeson's report that he, too, was suffering from cancer. Bailey said last month: "In July last year I got a tumour in my lower left jawbone, which was removed and replaced with the tibia from my left leg. This was all good – except every time I passed a footy field I began to dribble.

"Subsequently, I have developed a rare cancer of the soft palate, for which I'm currently being treated. The treatment involves chemotherapy over the next 5-6 months, and then maybe some radiotherapy.

"The prognosis is… well, nobody knows for sure right now which way it will go – but I'm fighting hard to stick around for some more partying." more on this story
