Aerosmith’s well-known bassist Tom Hamilton was recently interviewed by Music Radar’s Mike Brooks and revealed the latest health status of him while struggling with throat cancer.

Tom Hamilton sadly stated that his ability to sing is fading as the side effect of the radiation.

Music Radar:

“Do you have any unfulfilled musical ambitions?”

Tom Hamilton:

“On the deluxe version of the album there’s a song I wrote called Up On The Mountain, which I actually sang as a duet with Steven.

My first time ever singing lead on a song! So those two songs were the fulfillment of some dreams I’ve had for a long time.

As far as the other material I have saved up, either it’ll become Aerosmith material and Steven will sing them, or I’m going to have to find somebody else to do it.

I had cancer in my throat a while back, and they used heavy doses of radiation to get rid of it. The after-effects of that keep coming, so my ability to sing them is fading fast.”
