Ex-Rolling Stones bassist diagnosed with cancer


Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

A spokesman for the musician said: "He is undergoing treatment and is expected to make a full recovery as it was caught in the early stages."

The star was a member of the Stones from 1962 until 1993.

Since then, he has recorded and toured with his own band, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings.

The 79-year-old was pictured last weekend at the wedding of Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall.
