Stone Temple Pilots Cancel Upcoming Acoustic Tour

Stone Temple Pilots have revealed that vocalist Jeff Gutt will be undergoing surgery for a “severely herniated disc.” As a result, the band’s upcoming acoustic tour has been cancelled.

The group commented:

“We are sorry to announce that we must cancel the upcoming Perdida acoustic tour. Our brother Jeff has a severely herniated disc and doctors have advised immediate surgery which will require weeks of recovery time and physical therapy.

Thankfully Jeff is expected to make a full recovery and we will continue with our Australian tour with Live and Bush in April, the summer tour with Nickelback, and we hope to reschedule the Perdida tour later this year.

Everyone who purchased tickets for the Perdida tour will get full refunds for their tickets at point of purchase.

Thank you all for your understanding. We love you all and hope to see you on the road again soon.”

As previously reported, Stone Temple Pilots’ new album “Perdida” will be released on February 7.

Poison’s Bret Michaels To Undergo Procedures For Torn Rotator Cuff & Skin Cancer

Poison’s Bret Michaels has revealed that he will be undergoing two medical procedures. One will be performed to fix a torn rotator cuff, while the other will be performed to remove a patch of skin cancer.

The frontman commented:

“After a very recent kickoff to the new year, physical & MRI it has been brought to my attention that I have torn my right shoulder rotator cuff which would answer the question why it looks like a lump or bone was sticking out of my right shoulder.

A little more complex I will also have to undergo a procedure to remove skin cancer that was detected after a recent biopsy. I’m in the hands of incredible specialists who are both positive for great outcomes.

It may slow me down a bit at the beginning of the year, but if God willing I promise this year will be awesome. Just a few less solo shows & special events until I get this all squared up. As always continuing great diabetic maintenance to keep on rocking in 2020!”

Queen Guitarist Brian May Recovering From Leg Surgery

I’m done ! After a snip to my calf muscle, I’m feeling good ! The theory is that it will release the excess tension in my Achilles’ tendon and get me out of a painful heel situation I’ve been in for many months. I had the problem all through our last tour of the USA – and although adrenaline got me through, my running around was severely curtailed, and there were a couple of nights when I really couldn’t move at all around the stage (nobody noticed, it seems ! 😏). So now I’ll be taking it easy just a bit for a while, but full recovery should be just in time for getting back out on tour in January – hopefully with a good pair of heels ! THANKS for your good wishes, folks. No cause for alarm. Bri

DevilDriver Frontman Dez Fafara’s Wife Anahstasia Given “Clean Bill Of Health” Following Cancer Surgery

Earlier this year, DevilDriver were forced to cancel a number of shows after frontman Dez Fafara’s wife/business partner, Anahstasia Fafara, was diagnosed with cancer. Now, Anahstasia has offered a new health update, saying she has been given a “clean bill of health” after undergoing surgery to remove the disease.

Anahstasia said the following:

“Today I want to share with all of you some Amazing News!
This may be a long post🤷‍♀️

Almost two months ago I was diagnosed with Invasive Malignant Melanoma aka Skin Cancer.

Most melanoma under the skin grows from left to right and mine was growing DOWN,which was not a good sign.
It surely what would have been a much longer time period meaning if we went by the doctors that tried to schedule my appointments months out but my pushy and loving bull of a Husband was not going to let that Cancer just grow in me, so he took matters in his own hands and was extremely involved and had appointments and surgeries scheduled within weeks!!

My surgery was successful🌟 A very large deep incision on my leg returned “Clean Margins” meaning they removed all the Cancer! We were awaiting tests from another incision on my lymph nodes which they removed to check if it had spread. I had an amazing surgical team in Doctor MATTHEW Selleck and his partner RN Garret … FYI as they wheeled me into surgery they were blasting Nirvana Lol I knew then I was in very good and capable hands!😁

Next was an intense months long waiting game as they went over with not one but three pathologists to determine why I had a few dark cells in with my lymph nodes that clearly were not melanoma but were of concern. After 3 pathologists and a round table of Oncology doctors reviewed my cells they all determined that indeed fair haired , light eyed people and others sometimes have some dark cells in the lymph nodes nodes and that these were not a concern to them -Just an Anomy..

this gave me and my family the Clean Bill of Health but I must be seen every four months for the rest of my life to have ultra sounds and scans. I wanted to thank everyone who showed myself and my family love and concern. I know there are many dealing with a much worse cases of this deadly disease all over the World, my empathy and heart goes out to all the families enduring, waiting on tests, having surgeries and basically living at hospitals to try and survive.
This has been a life changing event for myself, my husband and all of our close family.

You truly come to find out who cares and who doesn’t and I have had such an out pouring of love from both those I know and many whom I’ve never met and for this I’m grateful. Thank you for all my DM messages. I read every one.

My husband took incredible care of me, cooked , cleaned , did all the house hold chores as I remained upstairs and unable to walk (I’m still very shaky and can’t be on my feet for to long I get these crazy zingers ) and for this compassion and he already knows but I love you Bradley and eternally Thankful.

My sons Kaleb @kalebfafara and Simon @simonfafara were My Absolute Rocks, going as far as to help build a tiki bar downstairs where I could sit and play vinyl and sing Donna Summer greatest hits (she’s my favorite guilty pleasure but I dare you to put on her greatest hits and not jam!) they Kept me lifted and my Heart Full of Love and Positivity.
To Dan Devita at TKO who made me a Fuck Cancer playlist to jam in the tiki bar and I love you for this.
Also Thank You to Hilde at Ink Against Cancer @inkagainstcancer for the support.

I post this picture above to show you my family as Randy @drandallblythe checked on me daily along with our inner family, all of DevilDriver @nealfingtiemann @michaelspreitzer @fnaustile83 @official_ashes , Coal Chamber @nadjapeulen @mikeycoxofficial @meegsrascon every Oracle Mgmt artist all checked in on me constantly and kept my hopes up, my Mother and father in laws, sister and brother in-laws all for checking on me daily and for this I’m eternally grateful – I’m grateful for LIFE and every day here on Gaia that I can spend with family and friends. Life is precious, friends and family are precious, while your here learn to give, be empathetic, be generous and loving and always Stay Positive!
