Former Rolling Stones Bassist Bill Wyman Battling Cancer

Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. His spokesman says, “He is undergoing treatment and is expected to make a full recovery as it was caught in the early stages.”

The 79-year-old Wyman once told us he doesn’t “worry about health things.”

Bill Wyman on his lifestyle:

“I don’t do exercise, I smoke. I’m not a great food gourmet either. I just think of food as, you know, in the garage, fill up and get out, you know, like you do with a car. And I feel the same way about sleeping. I sleep when I’m tired. When I wake up I get up, you know, I don’t think I have to go to bed from 11 ’til eight. I’m that kind of person — I just do the necessary things.”

Wyman is the second member of the Stones to be afflicted with the C-word. Drummer Charlie Watts was diagnosed and successfully treated for throat cancer in 2005.
