WARRANT Drummer STEVEN SWEET Declared Cancer-Free

February 28, 2019

WARRANT's longtime drummer Steven Sweet has announced that he is cancer-free.

The rocker made the announcement three months after it was revealed that he had been diagnosed with moderately aggressive prostate cancer.

Sweet's first concert with WARRANT after beating the disease will take place on March 15 at Gas Monkey Live! in Dallas, Texas.

Last fall, a GoFundMe campaign was started by Steven's friend Glenn Noyes to help the drummer raise $35,000 to cover the drummer's medical expenses while he was unable to perform live and support his family.

Although prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer found in men and is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men, it can also be one of the most treatable forms of cancer.

On average, approximately one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.

Three years ago, Sweet underwent emergency surgery after his appendix burst. Four years earlier, he had a cervical spinal fusion operation.

WARRANT's latest album, "Louder Harder Faster", was released in May 2017 via Frontiers Music Srl.
