Rod Stewart just revealed that he was diagnosed with cancer, but the diagnosis came in 2016, and this July he was given the all-clear, CNN reports.
The British music legend, whose hits include “Maggie May” and “I Don’t Want To Talk About It,” went public with his illness at a fundraising event for the Prostate Project and European Tour Foundation charity in Surrey, England on Saturday night.
“Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer,” the singer revealed at a fundraising event for the Prostate Project nonprofit Saturday in England, per the Guardian. “I’m in the clear now, simply because I caught it early. … I’ve worked for two years and I’ve just been happy, and the good Lord looked after me.” He added, “No one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody.” Stewart, 74, also urged men to get themselves checked: “Finger up the bum, no harm done.”
