Olle from Dada Life posted a very serious message today on their site, here is an excerpt:
“It’s the best cancer you can get.”
The only word I could hear was “cancer” and it kept bouncing inside my head and I don’t think I heard what the doctor said for the rest of the visit.
As some of you know I’ve been away from the touring. And now I want to tell you why. In the beginning of September I went to the doctor. It was a Monday. On Wednesday I had surgery (moving fast is important). Since then I’ve been taking blood samples, going through x-rays and talking to doctors. And now I’m in chemotherapy.
Yes, it’s cancer. But after talking to the doctors I’ve realized that this particular form really is “the best” cancer you can get. Most people that get treatment become completely free from it.....
....I will be away from touring for a while. I don’t know exactly how long right now, but I aim to be back at the end of this year. Stefan will still be doing all the shows and play a full Dada Life-set. It won’t be long until the bass hits you in the stomach and you look up towards stage and see two DADAS bouncing up and down smiling.
I wish Olle the very best, and I hope for a speedy recovery.
