Update On Aerosmith’s Tom Hamilton

Report: Aerosmith Bassist Dealing With Health Setback

Aerosmith has hit a snag in its tour Down Under with reports of bassist Tom Hamilton’s latest health setback. Hamilton has reportedly left the band’s Australian run to get treatment for what’s described as a “chest infection.”

The website Noise11.com says backup bassist David Hull flew in to Australia to replace Hamilton at Aerosmith’s Sunday show in Melbourne. Hamilton reportedly plans to rejoin the band once he recovers.

The 61-year-old rocker was diagnosed with throat and tongue cancer in August 2006. After extensive radiation and chemotherapy treatments, Hamilton declared himself cancer-free that same year, only to have the cancer return in 2011. He again underwent treatment and has been responding well to the treatments.
