Statement released on Thursday 7th October 2021.
You've probably now heard that John, Frank & Spencer are bringing The Searchers back for a solo tour in 2023.
I have had the honour of being a custodian of the Searchers drum throne for over 9 years & it was a wonderful experience, one I will never forget.
I was informed on Friday 1st October 2021, that I would not be involved in the 2023 tour, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank the band, & most importantly, you, the fans, for the spectacular memories. We play for you, to bring you the sounds that you love, & the music you hold so dear to your heart.
Enjoy the shows & thank you for making me so welcome & for taking me into your hearts & homes.
Lots of love.
