Angels Frontman Doc Neeson Fighting Cancer Again

(Classic Rock) The Angels frontman Doc Neeson is fighting cancer for a second time, he's confirmed - but he remains as determined as ever to beat the disease. He announced in 2013 that he'd been diagnosed with a brain tumor, and vowed he'd be among the 20% of victims who'd survive. His statement came just days before Angels bassist Chris Bailey retired from the band to deal with jaw cancer. He died last April.

Neeson tells ABC: "The news is grim - but some people can get through this, and that's the way I try to think about things. I'm looking forward optimistically to the future."

He reveals he was given 18 months to live when first diagnosed, saying: "It was a shock when someone put a use-by date on me, but I still hung on to a shred of hope that I'd get back on stage at some point." more on this story
