- Check here the photos from the "Uriah
(s)Heep Market": http://www.uriahsheepmarket.tk . A lot of Heepsters
showed up and enjoyed the "Heep Quiz". Ralph Pluym was proclaimed
as the winner. He won the Uriah Heep statue made by Evert Achterberg and
a huge Arrow Classic Rock poster. Sinister Purpose played a few excellent
versions of Heep songs like "Easy Livin'", "Stealin'",
"Lady in Black"... and some excerpts from "The Park".
The Touch played well known Nederpop hits from Golden Earring, Cuby &
the Blizzards, The Outsiders and others. Focus, with Thijs van Leer, ended
a great day with an outstanding set.
- A newspaper reviewing the Arrow Classic Rock Festival pictured not
only Uriah Heep and the other bands but also one of the Heepfans, Arnold
the Wit: http://angel.regioportals.nl/gelderlander/cgi-bin/imageFolio.cgi?
. Many heepsters will recognise Arnold as the Heep photographer in many
Heepy occasions. At http://www.classicrockfestival.tk more links to reviews
and tons of pictures were added! The main opinion from the guestbook writers
is that Heep was far out the best set that day! Pictures from both the
Festival and the Market can be seen also at http://members.lycos.nl/uriahheep/
, thanks to Evert Achterberg.

- The Charity Auction at Ken Hensley's site is now over! A list with
the winners can be seen following the link at http://www.ken-hensley.com
. Here's a message from Ken: Hi everyone! I just wanted to say a
huge thank you to all of you who bid in the auction. I really
didnt doubt that you would come through but I was really pleasantly
surprised that we raised so much money! And an enormous thanks to Rodrigo
for putting it all together too!! Well begin processing the details
on Monday and start shipping as each order is cleared. Then,
once we are finished we will present the cheque to Father Paco and he
has already said that he wants to write to all of you too! We have also
donated some sports equipment and some school desks that I came across
(quite by accident) so, all in all, were going to make some under-privileged
kids very happy!! Later this year we will do another auction as well as
a benefit concert but, for now, please enjoy the pleasure of having given
to some very needy kids and please accept my sincere and grateful thanks.
God bless, Ken Hensley <><"
- Breaking news!!!! Bernie Shaw and John Lawton will be recording the
"Shaw/Lawton" project, at some point this year!! They have been
talking about it for quite a while now and finally found a record company,
that will back it. Obviously, their plans have to take into consideration,
what Uriah Heep and the John Lawton Band are doing, but they think they
can find a spot... The album will consist of some Heep tracks, some originals
and maybe a couple of classics! So they are asking the Heepsters to write
in and suggest what Heep songs they would like to hear and maybe even
some suggestions for the Classics (definitely not "My Way"
;-)! Suggestions can be sent to JLB@ntlworld.com !
- The brand new John Lawton Band studio album, "Sting in the Tale",
is now in stock and ready to be shipped on Monday July 14th!! For orders:
