oh no :( :eek: :(

i'm really sorry to hear that it was such an awful gig. not just for the crowd, but for the band too. i can't say i'm looking forward to the negative (and mostly unreasonable, given the circumstances) comments from people who simply haven't got a clue.

:von: , will you please take better care of yourself FFS?

Well, at least he's got a couple of weeks before they have anything scheduled. But still...

Said it before, but I'll say it again: those boys are troupers! :D

History is made in Thessaloniki... :notworthy:
Although the circumstances under which it occurred are distressing, that must have been pretty amazing...especially with Greek-English. ;)

Wouldn't you know it? :roll:

Thanks so much for this information, even though some of it is...rather unwelcome. Any further reports on the state of Andrew's health would be most appreciated. :kiss:

If only it was possible to take the worry that I feel, process it into best wishes of good energy, make a medicine out of it and send it to him, he would be feeling as good as an adolescent kitten fed on the best brands of vitaminised gourmet catfood, climbing the trees and chasing butterflies in a safe orchard on a sunny day of spring, surrounded by adolescent she-cats of all shapes and colours. :| :cry:

This nightmare is getting more and more pathetic... cheers to Ben and Chris, but it sounds like a fainting machine to me. It's time to face up the facts.
