on the new album is coming along - slowly but surely - we say
slowly but surely for a particular reason; Andy has a chronic
shoulder problem which he's suffering with, he was hoping it was just
a cramp and has been working through it aided by pain killers, but it
seems to be something more; some days he can't lift his arms above
his shoulders and finds it difficult to do the simplest of things at
times; he is under the doctor but nothing conclusive has been
suggested as to what the problem is.
fitted in recording when he has good days and in not too much pain,
and shall continue this way when he feels up to it.
and God willing everything will be sorted out and he will be fit,
pain free and back to his old self.
that you keep him and the band in your thoughts and prayers.
Pete & Graeme.
