The Rumour Mill Thanks Matt, In reply though to your post, I will just pick up on one section if you dont mind, make a comment, and then finish with a brief statement. This is all I will say on the matter. You said:- "I know the band that Kevin's gone to. Know a few people there who are very excited to have him, so I can understand what a loss he will be to your band." The rumour mill is working in full production again. I know the band you refer to, and I think that It is probably one of 4 or five that Kevin is supposed to have joined in the last week ("according to someone in the band who told me personally"). From what Kevin has told me (himself), he has no immediate plans to join any band as MD although will probably and quite rightly, do so when a suitably interesting and attractive opportunity arises. He has certainly not "gone to" any band at the moment. I am also certain that any announcement would be done publicly rather than second and third hand in a pub etc. It is true that Kevin is working with a couple of bands at the moment on specific projects, as he has done throughout his time as Flixton's MD. Those who saw us last weekend at Kirkby Lonsdale (We did rather well by the way), would have seen that there was still a good relationship between Kevin and the band. I'm sorry if the real facts are not very "juicy" to people in the band world, but quite simply, after 3 sucessfull years as MD of Flixton Band, Kevin has decided the time is right to move on in order to pursue other challenges and projects. He has not made any decisions as yet regarding his future, and is currently honouring his prior commitments of with 2 or 3 bands on specific projects. Flixton Band still have the same players, and the same ambitions. We will continue working as hard (as we have with Kevin), with whoever takes over. Thanks again Matt, for your kind offer.
