We are sending out our best wishes for a speedy recovery to the great Michael Stanley!
The legendary Cleveland rock icon, who hosts the afternoon drive show on WNCX 98.5 FM, recently underwent quadruple bypass surgery. He posted the following note on the station's website on Thursday.
Hey ‘NCX listeners. You may have heard that there have been a few things go wrong in my life here–that would be right. Bill and I have tried to do our part in filling you in on our battles with prostate cancer. As you know, I am done with that, I’ve moved on. Unfortunately, I’ve now moved on to coronary bypass surgery. I thought, “ya know, there are guys out here getting double bypasses, I don’t want to be the low man on the totem pole so I said ‘let’s go for four!’”
Nevertheless, it could be a while until I get back to full strength here. So I know you all took care of your prostates earlier – Bill and I are very glad about that – now go get your heart checked!
I’d like to thank all the well-wishers for your phone calls, texts and emails.You guys keep rockin’ and I will talk to you later.
Stanley revealed in 2016 that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The 69-year-old singer-songwriter powered the Michael Stanley Band to national fame in the late 1970s and early 1980s with hits such as 'He Can't Love You' and 'My Town.' Stanley continues to perform to packed audiences, fronting Michael Stanley and the Resonators.
Get well soon, Michael!
