Kennedy Brock of The Maine recently shared that during the writing and recording process of the band’s upcoming album, American Candy, he had a tumor successfully removed from his thoracic spine. Read what the guitarist had to say about it below.
During our time recording American Candy, a tumor was found on my thoracic spine. I went through a tricky surgery to remove it, but everything went as good as humanly possible and it has since been classified as benign. I am currently healthy and free of my unwanted friend, but still very sore and healing. I am writing to request that everyone please be gentle, with hugs and such, while hanging out with me over the next few months. I love you all and couldn’t be happier to be seeing you all again soon! #AMERICANCANDY #8123 #Nigelthetumor
