Tom Hamilton Recovering

Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton will miss the beginning of the band’s upcoming tour while recovering from radiation treatment for throat cancer.

Band publicist Marcee Rondan said Hamilton will join the band on its Route of All Evil tour in mid-October. He just completed a seven-week treatment, the publicist said.

David Hull, a longtime friend of the band who played with the Joe Perry Project, will take Hamilton’s place.

The tour kicks off September 5th at the Germain Amphitheater in Columbus, Ohio.
