Mark Hoppus Plays Bass For The First Time Since Cancer Diagnosis
Mark Hoppus has shared a video of himself playing bass for the first time after being diagnosed with cancer.
The Blink-182 musician revealed last month in a statement to fans that he had been undergoing chemotherapy. He then later confirmed that he’d been diagnosed with 4-A diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and that it was at “stage 4.”
Earlier this month, Hoppus provided fans with a positive update on his treatment saying: “Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news.”
During a Twitch livestream on Monday, July 26, the bassist picked up his bass guitar and proceeded to perform Blink’s 2005 track ‘Not Now’ stating that it was the first time he had played in a long time.
“Not only is this the first time that I’ve tried to play these songs in well over a year, this is the first time that I’ve felt well enough to play my bass since I was diagnosed,” Hoppus said.
