Tilts — a really rad band with a sound that might remind you of Queens of the Stone Age and its related projects — has revealed some shitty news.
Drummer Ken McCray has been diagnosed with colon cancer, which has spread to his liver.
“Time to let everyone in on a little secret,” says McCray. I was diagnosed with colon cancer two weeks ago. Then, last week was informed that its spread to the liver. Stage 4.”
Stage IV is the worst kind. This is so fucking sad. Our thoughts are with McCray as he battles the disease.
“I start chemo on Monday. Lookin’ forward to kicking the shit out of this cancer, and moving on with life,” he writes. “I’ll keep everybody posted to any new info, as I get it. In the meantime, I’ll be the bald headed baby huey playing drums for Superjam [and Tilts!]“
I like that positive attitude. Good luck, dude.
Please, folks — send good vibes this man’s way. He has a long, difficult battle ahead.
