This is the last month so the last blog of our anniversary year. So let’s start this time with a message from Neil to his fans:
Hi everyone & a very merry Xmas. Had a great show at weekend in Austria. Now rehearsing for a big private show in Vienna & finishing my album hopefully, so all recording will be done then mixing it sometime next year! More news in the new year! From your very own rock star! Xx
We had a special secret mission going on on facebook, to send a thank you card for Neil for the past 10 years (and before). Thanks everyone who contributed to it and to Eva for organising it and giving it to Neil on his last solo show of the year.
Here’s his reaction to it on our facebook fan group page:
Merry Xmas everyone & thank you for the xmas cards..I will open them when i’m back home…..
Anniversary activities: Contest.
We selected 10 photo’s of the past 10 years for a glossy collage poster. You can win this unique poster signed by Neil by entering our special anniversary Christmas puzzle contest below.

Looking back on this year.
Of course this month we also look back at this last year of the anniversary year. And i also made an photo album for it.
Today it’s been 2 years already that Steve Torch left us, still a big loss for Neil and us, but it was nice to hear that two of the songs Neil and him wrote (‘Velvet Ghost’ and ‘Love is the Criminal’ ) are used by Claudia Cane for an album called ” Friends”.
Neil was very busy touring of course with Chris de Burgh and making library music with Chris Goulstone. And on top of that has been working and recording for his next solo album, which will be released next year. So now its time for a well deserved break for him and spent some quality time for Christmas with his family.
The same goes for myself. Trying to post a blog and searching for photo’s of a particularly year every month was quit challenging and i only managed to post 8 blogs this year. I don’t think won’t be posting as much next year..but you never know…
For now i wish you all a peaceful, joyful, safe and happy ending of the year and you can stay up to date at our fan group on facebook.
Keep on rocking!
