The 42-year-old was rushed to hospital the same day and was diagnosed with a 3cm mass on his brain.

The following morning, Kenny had to have emergency surgery to drain life-threatening fluid from his head.

He was later told that he would require major surgery to reduce the size of the tumour.

But due to it’s dangerous location, they cannot remove all of it.

Kenny, endured eight hours of surgery on Monday, September 19.

He is currently waiting for biopsy results to find out the nature of the tumour and MRI results to find out if it has spread to his spinal cord.

The former rock star toured the world with the band who were formed in 2003 in Glasgow.

They sold over 30,000 albums and had two singles in the UK Rock Singles Chart.


And they supported Bon Jovi at Hampden in 2008.

The group then split in 2014.

After his rock star life, Kenny settled down with his wife Lynsey and they have two kids – Ella and Lewis.

Kenny recently handed in his resignation after his career in teaching to start his dream job.

However, he cannot start his new job until he is fully recovered.

A fundraising page has been set up in a bid to raise money for Kenny and his family during this traumatic time.

A statement on the page reads: “The reason that Kenny requires financial help is that he has no means to support his family throughout this traumatic ordeal.

“The timing could not have been worse. Kenny had handed his resignation into his much loved place of work, of 16 years, to begin his new dream job.

“Kenny cannot start this job until he is fully recovered.
