Aerosmith ‘s Tom Hamilton treated for cancer, but will tour with the band in the fall

Tom Hamilton, bass player for the legendary rock band Aerosmith, has just completed a seven-week radiation treatment for throat cancer, but the rocker still plans to join his band on their current tour by mid-October, according to statements made by a band spokeswoman.
Hamilton, 54, will be replaced by bass player David Hull until he is ready to return to the road with the rest of Aerosmith – who have just announced a fall tour with fellow rock legends Motley Crue. Hull also played with Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry during the Joe Perry Project during the 1970s.
Hamilton is just the latest member of Aerosmith to face health problems this year. Frontman Steven Tyler was forced to have surgery on his right vocal cord earlier in the year to fix a broken blood vessel. The surgery had forced the group to cancel 20 planned concerts that would have taken place during the spring. The band’s upcoming tour, ‘Route of All Evil’ is set to kick off on September 14th in Holmdel, New Jersey.
