In a singular interview published on the University of Miami Health System website in September 2021, missed by the media and picked up by Blabbermouth this morning, McBrain said he initially knew something was wrong in 2019 after noticing a change in his voice.

“When you’re lying in a quiet room and you’re talking and hearing your voice in your head and you have a cold, you sound different,” McBrain said. “It happened to me. I thought it reminded me a lot – of that voice different from mine – when I was finishing a tour or after a show. I didn’t have a cold at all or any symptoms of illness. I started to feel like I was clearing my throat more when I was in conversations, so I just took it upon myself to call my doctor.

The article notes that McBrainThe cancer has been removed and is considered cancer free. As for his early diagnosis, MrBrain urges anyone who has noticed anything different in their voice to consider getting checked out.

“I highly recommend anyone who might feel there is something different with their voice to go and have it checked out,” McBrain said. “And don’t delay. It was very good for me that I caught him in Stage 1.”
