The Charlatans Drummer Diagnosed With Brain Cancer.

By on 22 September, 2010

THE CHARLATANS drummer Jon Brookes has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

The percussionist was rushed to hospital last week (15th September) after collapsing during a concert in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The band scrapped the rest of its U.S. tour and the musician returned to back to the U.K.. A statement from the group has now confirmed Brookes is suffering from brain cancer and they have thanked fans for their support as the star continues treatment.

The message reads:

“The band and Jon would like to thank all well wishers for their kind messages of support.”

As a result, the band also revealed they will be hiring a “short-term replacement” while Brookes battles the brain tumour.

Hope Jon manages to beat this awful illness!
