LONDON (AP) - Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts is being treated for 
throat cancer, a spokesman for the band said Saturday.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the spokesman said Watts, 63, was 
diagnosed in June and had completed four weeks of a six-week course of 
radiotherapy at London's Royal Marsden Hospital.

"He is expecting to make a full recovery and start work with the rest of the 
band later in the year," the spokesman said.

He said Watt's treatment had not interfered with any tour or recording plans 
for the Stones, who have been "relaxing between work commitments" following 
a world tour last year.

Known as the most laid-back member of the band he joined more than 40 years 
ago, Watts has also performed with a variety of jazz ensembles.
