10/31/06 - PHIL LESH of the GRATEFUL DEAD Reveals He Has Prostate Cancer but Expects Full Recovery
Phil Lesh, the bassist for the iconic band, the Grateful Dead has revealed that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Lesh said in a statement on his website that "Since we've caught it very early, and it's small and slow-growing, I fully expect to have a rapid and complete recovery." He plans to have surgery in early December to remove the cancerous area. Lesh has been closely monitored since his 1998 liver transplant and it was recently noticed that had elevated levels of prostate specific antigens (PSA), proteins produced by cells of the prostate gland. High PSA levels can indicate prostate cancer. A biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. Lesh continues by saying "I am feeling energetic as always, and all my scheduled appearances will occur as planned," For breaking information or to read the posts, go to his website at
