    The star was born William Perks in Lewisham, London and was a member of the Stones from 1962 until he quit in the early 90s.
    He went on to make music with his own band, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, and also toured with the group.

    Talking about leaving The Stones, he told The Telegraph in 2013: "When I said I wanted to leave they told me I was probably giving up £20 million for the next two years. But I had three great houses and some nice cars."
    Asked if he felt he had enough, he responded: "Yes, and I got married again and worked on books, and started a band to subsidise my living expenses.
    "And I don't regret it because I've never been happier. I’m sure I’m happier than they are in their lives, I really do."

    The star has been married three times
    Bill has been married twice to before to Diane Cory, with whom he has a son, and Mandy Smith.
    He met his third wife, Californian model Suzanne Accosta, in Paris in 1979. They tied the knot in 1993.
    The musician, who has three daughters with Suzanne, was known as a ladies' man back in the day but insists he has always treated women with respect.
    Bill once said: "Before I joined the Stones, a workmate gave me a piece of advice.

    "Always treat a woman like a lady, and I always did that, even when I broke up with one.
    "There are some who I still write to, a friend in Australia who I used to go out with in '63, '64. She has grandchildren now.
    "And I'm still in touch with a girl I used to go out with in '64, '65. I never treated them like s*** and threw their clothes out."

    Almost every old guy gets prostate cancer. Old age will get him if it is treated early. Watch your PSA numbers kids.

    The medical profession says that everyone will eventually get some form of cancer if they live long enough.

    Yeah even if it kills him, he can live with it for 15 years. That's assuming he hasn't had it for a while already. Besides that, the worst part is probably the erectile dysfunction. Hope for the best.

    Maybe he's just trying to sell a gutter system. They're very persistent

    Poor Bill. The oldest and oddest Stone.
    Got to give him props for is unusual bass style. He was in a basic 4/4 band and always played like he wasn't.

    I once read somewhere that if you take real old men when they die that near 100% of them had it to some degree
    most would have been completely unaware they had
    but they did


    is that true--no idea--but sounds like it could be true

    He caught this shit early enough that he is supposed to make a full recovery. I'm still angry with him that he left the band, but I don't want him to go out with boner cancer. Fuck that.

    He did one truly memorable song that appeared on Satanic Majesty's: In Another Land.
    Love that song.
