The guitarist's doc says he is not dying of cancer...

JOHNNY RAMONE is not dying of cancer, according to his doctor.

As reported yesterday (June 16), fellow Ramones Marky said in an interview with Rolling Stone that the guitarist was battling with cancer.

But according to the latest reports, Johnny may be leaving hospital tomorrow.

His doctor, David Agus told MTV news that the illness that led to his trip to the LA hospital was a “complication from the cancer”.

He continued: “He got through it, and he’s now on a new, experimental therapy. He’s fighting courageously, and I think he will be going home in the near term.”

The band’s singer Joey Ramone and bassist Dee Dee Ramone have both already died. Joey succumbed to cancer in 2001, while the bassist died from a drug overdose the following year.
