Good lord, death just really had it in for this guy. RIP :(

The reason the "cure" isn't used is the only reason he is cured is that his treatment for leukemia involved killing off his existing bone marrow and replacing it, and it's the original leukemia that came back that killed him. It isn't used on purpose because you not only have to have your bone marrow replaced, you have to develop graft-versus-host disease, where the new cells actually go and attack your existing cells and kill them all, for it to work.

This isn't actually practical and is worse than being HIV+.

Jesus Christ ... that's goddamn rough. Guess it's a minor miracle he made it as far as he did, then.

Which means, now we have to check on Slash to see if he’s okay

I am amazed most musicians with history of substance abuse can live past 40.
Lemmy (may he rest in peace) alledgedly could not have blood transfusions because the clean blood would have caused his body to go into shock and kill him. Amazing he lived to the age of 70 despite the fact he drank a bottle of jack a day and did tons of speed.
