Wow last month did go by very fast hasn't it....
I thought a new month...great time for another lay-out on the fansite....so i dug up an very old black and white photo and placed it as a new background. I will probably will do that more often...not sure if it will be every month though. but if any of you feel creative...please send in your backgroundpics and maybe i will use it for a while on the fansite. For next month it will be great if we can place a nice christmas/new year theme.
So here's a summary of what happened and a preview about whats ahead.
Neil was guest at a few radioshows. 2 of them are placed on the fansite in the interview and review section and another one will follow when i've editted it. You can also hear Neil's 11 year old son Johnny Ray being interviewed...and that is for a good reason....
Johnny Ray has his own song out. Its called "the best dad in the world". Its a real tear jerker and is about dads that are away or being missed. A very cool video is made for it as well. You can see it on the official youtubechannel and here on the fansite. Its available on itunes and a donation from every download will go to the Help for Heroes Charity. Help for Heroes is a charity that support soldiers after they're wounded in battle.
There has even been made a https://www.facebook.com/#!/xmasnumber1" target="_blank">special page on facebook to get him to nr. 1 on christmas...that will only work when you all help out and download the song...its only 79 pence (UK).
So please help out and download Johnny Ray's song and ask all your friends and family to do the same...its for a good cause and its a really great song!
Johnny also turned on the Christmaslights in Trowbridge last night and signed many autographs..he was very cool about it Neil said. They played Johnny's song and as he walked to the stage people gave him a big cheer. Photo's to come soon hopefully.
Like i mentioned in the last newsletter Neil will perform 8 acoustic shows (without Gary this time) as supportact for (ultravox singer) Midge Ure again in Germany. For all the dates and details watch the eventcalender on this website. To warm up for the shows he will do 2 acoustic shows at The Canal Tavern in his hometown Bradford On Avon, this Tuesday and Thursday about 9:30pm. So if you happen to be in that area pay the tavern a visit and make some pics for us who can't be there.
Same question for the Midge Ure support tour...if you'll visit one of the shows...and can make some photo's or even video's for all us who can't be there...that would be awsome and much appreciated.
Talking about video's...some new footage of the gigs Neil did earlier in Germany are now made public.. The songs Shout and No God were made by me at the gig in Hamburg. We didn't put them on before because of the bad audioquality...but the footage is just to great to keep it away from you. You can view them on the fansite and the youtubechannel as usual.
Did you do your christmasshopping already? You have only a few days to profit of this months sale on the online shop. Untill the end of november all items in the holidays section will be 20% off. So don't wait much longer and order now. Also because it has to be shipped from the USA it will take some time to be delivered.
Untill next month hopefully with lots of great footages of the gigs.
