’Dogs drummer battling cancer


Sheepdogs drummer Sam Corbett says he’s been diagnosed with cancer. In a Facebook post, Corbett says the disease was caught early and has a survival rate of 96 per cent. But he says he won’t be able to join his Saskatoonb­ased band on tour in the United States and Europe. Corbett didn’t say what type of cancer he has, but notes that he had surgery over the summer to remove a tumour. He says he began further treatment on Monday. No shows will be cancelled, and other drummers will perform.
