UPDATE: Bruce Corbitt Likely Has Cancer of the Esophagus, Retires from Singing
Just this morning, we learned that Rigor Mortis/Warbeast frontman Bruce Corbitt has been hospitalized with an esophageal tumor; now, in an (understandably) emotional new video update posted on Facebook, Corbitt reveals that he likely has stage three cancer of the esophagus, and has to retire from singing as a result (transcription courtesy of The PRP):
“I was just told an ago I more than likely have stage 3 Esophagus cancer. Still a chance for stage 2. I get into more details on what that means and our plan of attack soon.
“But after much discussion with the doctors and specialist. ..they’ve told me there’s no chance within in any reasonable time that I’ll ever be able to perform again.
So it breaks my heart at this time that I’m forced to announce my retirement from singing. I’m sorry to all of my band mates for letting them down. I’m devastated with all of this hitting me so fast. I’m still in shock.
“Thanks for all of the great support all these years. You’re the best fans and I love all of you! We at least have a great Warbeast album and music video coming soon.”
To say this is terrible would be a massive understatement. Corbitt is fighting for his very life… it’s hard for most of us to even fathom what that must be like.
