Drummer Billy Brimblecom interview by Melissa Treolo
In August of 2005, 28-year-old Billy Brimblecom went through surgery to remove his left leg. Earlier that year, doctors had identified the source of the pain
Brimblecom had been experiencing in the leg for several years: Ewing’s
sarcoma, a cancer of the bone. Brimblecom had always attributed the pain
he would feel off and on to an earlier car accident. But worsening pain
had motivated the trip to the doctor’s office, where multiple tests,
including a biopsy, led to the discovery of the cancer.
