(hennemusic) Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton says doctors have declared him cancer-free. Originally diagnosed with throat and tongue cancer in 2006, the bassist successfully underwent treatment at the time, and the health issue that returned in 2011 is now gone again.

"My doctor thought I was pretty much done with the cancer that I had in '06 and then it came back a few years later," Hamilton tells Long Island Pulse. "I was faced with losing my way of life…if not my life. But there's a guy here in Boston that Adele referred to [Steven Zeitels], who does novel surgeries and was able to do a procedure that got the cancer out of my throat without having to ruin the rest of it.

"I just saw him the other day and he said, 'You beat this one. You can keep coming to see me if you want, but I don't think you need to worry about this cancer coming back.' I said, 'I'll come back to see you every six months from here until eternity, if it's alright with you!'" Read more here.
