Founding Oasis guitarist Paul “Boneheard” Arthurs has some good news regarding his battle with tonsil cancer.

In a tweet Thursday, Arthurs shares he “had a full scan 10 days ago” and his cancer is “all clear.”

“It’s gone,” Arthurs writes. “Thank you so much all of you for the messages I’ve had throughout, you’ve helped more than you know.”

Arthurs first revealed his diagnosis in April. At the time, he called the cancer “treatable” and said he was “going to be taking a break from playing for a while.”

An original member of Oasis, Arthurs played on the albums Definitely Maybe, (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? and Be Here Now before leaving the band in 1999. More recently, he’s been playing in Liam Gallagher‘s solo band.

Following Arthurs’ good news, Gallagher responded in his usual way tweeting in all caps, “YES BONEHEAD WE KNEW YOUD KICK ITS A*** SOOOOO F***ING HAPPY.”
