The Charlatans’ Drummer Jon Brookes Diagnosed With Brain Tumor

The Charlatans have confirmed drummer Jon Brookes has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

As previously reported by Spinner, Brookes collapsed and stopped breathing during a show in Philadelphia last week (Sept. 15). After receiving treatment in the US, he returned to the UK where the diagnosis was made, the BBC reports.

A representative for the band, which earlier this year celebrated the 20th anniversary of their debut album, ‘Some Friendly,’ said, “The Charlatans’ drummer Jon Brookes is currently undergoing treatment in the UK for a brain tumor following the postponement of the remaining dates of Charlatans’ North American tour. The band and Jon would like to thank all well wishers for their kind messages of support.” Full Story at Spinner
