Default Purdie Shuffle info

Just thought I'd post this to let any interested parties know how he's doing.

I talked to John (Purdie Shuffle) a few times in the last week and he's currently in a physical re-hab facility. Said he needs to regain strenghth and should be going home in a week or so after being in and out of the hospital (mostly in according to him) for the last 2 or so months.
I'll leave it to him to post any details that he might want to share when he gets back to his routine but posted this in case any of his friends here wondered where he was. Thanks, Mick

Yes thanks for the info, I had a thread on him a while back and know one knew anything. Hope he can eventually get to his computer and post again.

once the brass ceases to glitter, and the drum looses its luster, and the stage remains dark, all you have left is the timbre of family.

I finally heard from John and he says hi to all of the guys and he thinks of us all the time. I am sure he will be back here when he recovers.
