Stephen Stills has successful surgery

Musician recovers after cancer operation

Crosby, Stills And Nash star and singer Stephen Stills is recovering after undergoing surgery for prostate cancer, his wife confirmed yesterday (January 3).

In a public statement, Kristen Stills said the “procedure went remarkably well and he couldn’t be better. He will be home by noon tomorrow and the pain will be minimal”.

Stills is scheduled to attend the Sundance Film Festival in Utah for the January 25 world premiere of ‘CSNY/Déjà vu’, a feature movie directed by Neil Young under his cinematic pseudonym Bernard Shakey.

The singer is also scheduled for a North American solo tour this spring.
