Thanks to Paul and each and everyone of you at KISSin UK!

I just wanted to drop you a line to bring you up to date with my progress; I’m still having
re-education twice weekly, with another 6-8 weeks left to go before I consult the pecialists again (they tell me that every thing looks very positive, but I’ll need to take it easy!). I’ve started practising behind the drums (something I’ve been itching to do for many months now!) and things are going well!

 I now have a copy of the gig poster for the upcoming Room Service gig featuring Leigh Marklew (Sat 7th July). Click on the poster for a larger version.

Just a short message to let you know about a gig that is happening in Bradford on July 7th. Our new, and rather different KISS tribute band ROOM SERVICE are playing our first show at Bradford Gasworks Club on Saturday July 7th 2007. Doors I think at 8pm. All the tunes are taken from the 1973-1979 period. The band features Mozza, ex-Paradise Lost drummer, Kes Loy (from numerous bands including Leafeater and Malibu Stacey) and me, Leigh (who used to be in Terrorvision for my sins!). Should be lots of fun with a set list to die for!!
