THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT MY HOSPITAL STAY....


I have to come clean here chaps, the papers have this picture, so it's best you learn it here first.........
As you can see I've had a hair transplant, and I don't know about you, but I think it's worked a treat!

-MORE BREAKING NEWS-
it has been revealed that sam has designed a new guitar amp
it has always been a dream of his to create the perfect guitar amplifier and his enforced break has given him the time to do just that
at a press conference yesterday held at the greggs pie shop in pudsey he said 'it has always been a dream of mine to create the perfect guitar amplifier and this enforced break has given me the time to do just that'

- BAD FORM -
.
we had a call from part time eric Wilkses former band splinter who were going to cover for us on boxing day but had to pull out (oooer!!) due to other commitments
they wanted to let people know that they are still at the new roscoe on new years eve , £5 entry , even though someone has been contacting various music sites saying that thay are splitting up and had cancelled all their gigs
this is rather bad form and i dont think whoever was behind it is going to get many pressies from santa this year.
.
PRAT!!!
.
so why not get on down and see 'em for a good old boogie and a load of beer
.
.
BOXING DAY GIG AT NEW INN CANCELLED
.
I have visited Sam in hospital, he seems to be on the mend but is still awaiting some test results to see if he can come home before Christmas. Sends his thanks for all the good wishes.Hopefully he will be back in action soon.
