Get well soon Jay! Rest plenty! Eat well, SLEEP! ease off the alcohol!

The touring schedule looks too punishing.. has anyone factored in some time off in between gigs? How can anyone give a good performance if their energy levels are drained, consequently vulnerable to infection!

drove 600km. tired now. get well soon! hoping for tomorrow now...

1 hour before the doors would open... Jay did not get docters permission to sing. Last minute cancellation. Think everybody is sad, band And audience. Fingers crossed for tommorow.

someone pump him full of lemsips!

hey " me"...I agree with you..If you think of all the travelling in between, soundchecks, looks pretty hectic to me..but then again I am aware of how much every extra day must cost ( the whole crew has to get paid)...
and everybody who travels around knows that often if you come to a new country you are specially vulnerable to viruses etc...anyway..hoping jay is fit soon again and sorry for all the fans.hope you get a chance to see them anyway. :)

Seeing Paul Turner's message on the off site is looks like Rotterdam is on tonight! Yes. Hope J is well enough to give a 100%. See you tonight everybody!
