Listen to Eagles on iHeartRadio

Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit says he's fine after surgery for throat and neck cancer.

Schmit has posted a note on his website thanking fans for all their well wishes, writing:

"Although my issues were disheartening, and I went through what the doctors called 'major surgery,' the truth is I was only bedridden during my three-night stay in the hospital. I was up and about right after, starting with daily walks on the streets of Manhattan. After another week I received a clean bill of health and headed for home on the West Coast. My voice is coming along nicely, and as many of you know, I was able to perform with the Eagles just before the new year."

"So, not to worry…I love my work, and plan on doing it for as long as possible. I’m chipping away at a new solo album, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you hear of more Eagles action in the near future."
