Oasis guitarist Paul Arthurs – better known by his stage name Bonehead – has given fans a promising update on his cancer status after undergoing treatment in June.
In a new update, shared on Twitter on Thursday (29 September), Bonehead wrote: “I had a full scan 10 days ago and it’s all clear, it’s gone.”
“Thank you so much all of you for the messages I’ve had throughout, you’ve helped more than you know,” he said, further thanking the team at The Christie NHS foundation.
“Into recovery now and see you all soon,” he added.
Gallagher celebrated the news, writing on Twitter: “Yes Bonehead, we knew you’d kick its arse. Sooooo f***ing happy Guinness.”
The good news comes shortly after his course of treatment in June, which included radiotherapy and chemotherapy sessions.
At the time, he told fans: “I’m feeling the pain right now but I’m in recovery and things can only get better from here.”
