BELOW is a letter I got from a Fan Jim Daykin, I'thought it would be good for other fans to see this.

First introduced to the band when my brother, Paul, bought me a copy of "The Unexpected Guest" CD and have bought every CD since. Seen the band lots of times from the early days at Edwards in Birmingham and saw them last at Winking man last year - sounding better than ever. Even remember seeing them at Leicester City football club and as I recall there was only me and our youth there!
A couple of weeks ago, after a short illness, Paul passed away and it was his funeral today
I would like Dave and the lads to know that Half way through the service, the Revd Denise asked a packed Sutton Coldfield Crematorium to listen to "Time has come by Demon" - actually made me giggle as she said the words.
Not morbid, just very emotional and very powerful - all the family and friends have asked me to pass on their thanks
Jim

Very sorry to here this dreadful news. I remember that gig at the 'Half Time Orange' there was only a handful of people there that night, and a couple of days later we played to about 10,000 in Sweden. Nice to here that a song that means or meant so much was played at the service.
My love and sincere condolences to your family.
