Rocker Stephen Stills
has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, according to his Crosby, Stills, and Nash
bandmate Graham Nash
The 62-year-old is set to undergo an operation on his birthday on January 3, after an early diagnosis of the disease potentially saved his life.
And Nash insists Stills is very lucky to have spotted the condition, unlike late singing star Dan Fogelberg
, who died on Sunday after a three-year battle with the disease.
Nash tells TV talk show host Larry King
, "Unlike Danny (Fogelberg), who left it too long to be seriously checked, Stephen found his at an early stage. And he, I believe, is going to be operated on, on his birthday on January 3rd."
