Singer Michael Bolton Tells Fans He Had Surgery for a Brain Tumor Just Before the Holidays


Michael Bolton has posted a note to fans explaining his ill health. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor before the holidays and had surgery to remove it.

I’ve been told in the past that Bolton has also been battling other conditions that have plagued him. I saw him recently and refrained from asking what was wrong. Michael is the nicest guy in the world, and only deserves good things.

Here’s his statement. Let’s hope he has a speedy recovery.
