Hello, I really want to write about recovery,, and how important it is to take care of the things that are important in life. There is no uncertain term when discovering new ground, but what's for sure is that it is really important to have people around you that are in for the ride, regardless of how weathered the storm becomes. My story is long and varied, and full of loss mainly, but within that I have always held onto some faith that we will all meet up again, in the next life. It is…Continue

I have just finished your book Grace, and your story and what you went through as a family and somehow managed to survive has given me renewed hope for the future. My husband suffered a similar brain hemorrhage to Edwyn on 4 November 2011 and spent 16 weeks in the Southern General Hospital Glasgow. He has severe aphasia both…Continue

Does anyone have a recording of this song that they could post?
I'm sure I used to have in on cassette somewhere but I can't find it. It was a b side around the time of 50 shades of blue. I love it and only have it in my head now :(
Thanks to @ jamiemoir for establishing that the night my life changed was:
28TH APRIL - ESSEX, UNIVERSITY
A life changing event for me, aged about 13 or so, I can tell you. My tunes, my clothes, my understanding of pop culture, my hair (that one never worked: a curlytop lad can never really win the struggle for a decent quiff, though god knows I tried) were never the same…Continue

The identity of this mysterious confiture-y sod would be blindingly obvious had Edwyn written this song 15-20 years later than he did. But of course en ceux early jours, il était un grande pike dans un (relatively) small pond.
N'est-ce pas Dada?
PS Vote Gorge!

For many years, if held at gunpoint by rock fascists compiling The Ultimate Top 20,000 Best Albums Ever, I would have had to declare a preference for The Orange Juice as the fullest expression of our boy's genius on a single record. Listening to a lot of the Collins/Juice canon at the moment, and I think if this dangerous critical menace were to burst in on me and my collection and require a choice, I'd have to declare a preference for The Black Session.
If nothing else, this…Continue

One of the front page headline articles on yahoo had a link to Albums Everyone Should Own In The First Half of 2011. Edwyn was featured.

Hi Grace and Edwyn,
Just finished reading your book "The Restoration..." and wanted to congratulate you on an amazing acievement both literay and endurance wise. An incredible journey which touched me greatly. Your prose ensured that the reader was in those hospital wards and waiting rooms and mouths were absently caught smiling when you and Edwyn achieved another milestone or success.
You spoke of the amazing forsight with regard to Edwyn's prophecy in his lyrics to…Continue
I hope you read this blog. I just wanted to say how blown away I was by your set at Latitude on Friday, both musically and emotionally. The journey you've made to making great music again left me feeling tremendously uplifted.

Sorry I didn't know how to contact you apart from your blog but just to say, you sent me a scam email which I just wanted to worn (spelt wrong, I'm sure?!) I have aphasia too!
On a different subject, I got your 'Home Again ' CD last year which is fab!
Take care, Cressida
Here are some photos from the performance at Pure Groove Records 6-7 West Smithfield, London, EC1A 9JX at 6.30 pm on Tuesday July 1st. This was to launch Pure Grooves exhibition of the customised Home Again sleeves.

For all of you who think about going to one of his shows: DO IT!
What a great evening with an extraordinary band and a wonderful singer. Thank you for showing the young ones how to rock'n'roll!

After waiting 30 odd years to see Edwyn live I eventually managed it last night in Germany,after driving up from Zurich what can I say apart from Genius......
the band was tight and Edwyns voice was just about perfect, I felt 17 again. Thanks also to Will for the excellent service in the shop even if I was a well lubricated difficult customer, the guest vocal spot was pretty good too..
So anyone who has the chance to catch up with the upcoming shows in…
