About Neil's Health--

To break the scary rumours about Neil. The official statment has been changed from ''laid down by nasty tropical flu bug'' recently

Matter of Fact--

Neil has been diagnosed as having ME. The British Medical
Council's definition of ME is a viral fatigue syndrome which often
follows a chest, throat or stomach infection from which the
patient does not fully recover. Fever and headaches are
followed by muscle pains, tenderness, weakness and severe
muscle fatigue particularly after exertion. In a few cases
symptoms persist over a number of years and are sometimes
exacerbated by stress.

Neil is currently resting and there are no plans to cancel the
band's UK tour. A spokesman for the band has made this
statement:

"Neil has been diagnosed with ME, but he fully intends
continuing with the UK tour. The problem with touring is that it's
just not just about appearing onstage and making a few
movements, it's all the travelling. They've done about 40 dates
around the world this year and i don't think he can take it as
much as other people"
