Rolling Stones bass player Bill Wyman, who played with the band from 1962 through 1993, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, according to an announcement on his official Facebook page.

“Bill has been diagnosed with prostate cancer,” reads the statement. “He is undergoing treatment and is expected to make a full recovery as it was caught in the early stages. The Wyman family has asked for their privacy during this time.”

Wyman joined the Stones in late 1962, replacing Dick Taylor (who later went on to form the Pretty Things). Wyman played on the Stones’ debut album, 1964’s England’s Newest Hit Makers through the 1991 live album, Flashpoint. He rejoined them for a few songs at a couple of shows in 2012, but afterwards said that he wouldn’t reunite with them again.
