Tony Macalpine suspected intestinal Cancer

Damn!!! Terrible news. Tour is cancelled....understandably of course.

One of the biggest influences on my playing. There is no better guitarist
than TMac imho!

From his FB page today:

Hey it's Mike, Tony's manager, with an update:
Tony's surgery is scheduled for Friday morning CEST time, and he'll be in recovery on Saturday - his 55th birthday. Your responses and well-wishes have really lifted Tony's spirits. The outpouring of support has been overwhelming, and beautiful. Thank you. Please help me in sending him positive vibes from around the world especially during his operation and recovery this Friday/Saturday by celebrating his music and playing it loud and sharing it with those you know.

We'll have an update for you post-surgery.


Best of prayers and luck sent to you Tony!!!

Hate to hear that. Hoping for a speedy recovery so Tony can back to kicking ass on guitar and keyboards.

They need to find a cure already!

The problem is, pharmaceutical companies and doctors make too much money treating the darn thing!

Good thoughts Tony!
Get well sooooon!

Re: Tony Macalpine suspected intestinal Cancer

Some positive news guys:

Hello it's Mike, Tony's manager, checking in with some good news on Tony's birthday!
The operation yesterday lasted over 6 hours, and was a success. Doctors removed the tumor and it does not appear to have spread to other organs. It will be a few days before we know if Tony will require additional chemotherapy, or if he gets a clean bill of health, so we are of course hoping for the latter.

Re: Tony Macalpine suspected intestinal Cancer

That is very sad - he's too young to have to go through that...sounds like some positive news from his manager - keeping fingers crossed and sending healthy happy thoughts!
