Grant Fell, bass player for the Headless Chickens, has sadly passed away.

Grant had been battling glioblastoma over the last couple of weeks. He was declared cancer-free, and was working hard to rehabilitate himself from the toll it had taken on his brain.

The many seizures Grant had suffered during a difficult and frustrating hospital stay have regressed his recovery. A recent scan had also found some small new cancer cells.

Friends and fam have been fighting the fight along with him, raising funds through a #GrantForGrant Give A Little page, funding his stem cell treatment which was the best chance to get him out of a wheelchair and improve his prognosis long term.

Our thoughts go out to all the friends and family this music legend impacted.

More to come.
