Crowbar and Soilent Green drummer Tommy Buckley is currently recovering from surgery for prostate cancer. He had a prostatectomy, which means that his prostrate was removed at a doctor’s urging to prevent the spread of the cancer.

Buckley, an original member of the NOLA sludge barons known as Soilet Green, underwent the surgery on Aug. 13. The band posted an update on Facebook to let fans and friends know Buckley is doing well post-op. That’s excellent news.

Below is the band’s post updating everyone on Buckley’s condition and their optimism on his future. He wanted to share the news of his condition and surgery as a way to urge fans and headbangers to consider their own prostate health. He also is ready to get back to playing as soon as he is healed. We are glad his recovery is going well.
