Tony Wilson has been diagnosed with cancer; typically, he's attempting to argue it into submission:
"All my family tend to have heart attacks in the middle of the night aged in their 70s, 80s and 90s.
"I wasn't too upset when I was told the news. I just think you have to go with it and I see it as another step in life's adventure."
Wilson has thanked the NHS staff who have looked after him at Manchester Royal:
"It's funny that everyone has a moan about the NHS except for people who actually use it."
He's staying in hospital for a while, but hoping a successful release will follow the ingestion of a lot of high-power drugs. Which must be like working with the Happy Mondays again.
Get well, Tony.
