30 aprile 2018


Grande apprensione sta suscitando tra pubblico, estimatori e colleghi - tra cui notoriamente i Westbrook - la notizia dell'improvviso aggravamento delle condizioni di salute di Jon Hiseman, storico fondatore di Colosseum e Tempest impegnato proprio in questi giorni in un giro di concerti in Europa a sostegno del nuovissimo album Heroes (Repertoire, 2018) realizzato in trio con Clem Clempson e Mark Clarke in memoria degli amici ed eroi musicali di sempre, tutti scomparsi: Graham Bond, Jack Bruce, Gary Moore, Dick Heckstall-Smith, Ollie Halsall, John Mole, Larry Coryell e Allan Holdsworth.
L'annuncio della cancellazione dei concerti è esplicito: "Jon Hiseman was taken ill during the course of the tour and was discovered to have a cancerous brain tumour. He will be undergoing life-saving brain surgery as soon as possible and wishes you all to know how touched he is by the overwhelming show of support. It is our hope that he will be well enough to resume the tour later this year. Thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this time."
Auguri Jon!
