- Messages from John Lawton and Ken Hensley to the fans:

" To all my friends out there, I hope you had a good Christmas and are looking forward to great New Year....
Iris and I plus the guys from JLB, have had a busy 2004, it seems to have been non stop in one way or another.  From the Holland / Belgium tour with JLB, the gigs in Norway..... Bulgaria where I guested with the band BTR and then Lithuania, again with JLB......
So many highlights, so many new friends, culminating with the Stay On Top gathering in Hamburg, with Paul Newton, Keith Baker and of course Ken.  The trip to Japan (Iris and myself) for the Circle Of Hands Heepvention, was memorable in so many ways, the sights, the musician's.....doing a duet with an Opera singer on July Morning ;-)) and so many young music students from the college in Osaka, wanting to play Uriah Heep songs.....simply amazing.  To the guys in Japan, who took such good care of us, we thank you.....
To all the web masters, Rodrigo, Louis, Dave White, Staf and "Eddie", Oliver and Carsten in Hamburg  and friends (to many to name) who have helped us in so many ways, we thank you from the heart.
To all our fans(friends) who seem to take up the first few rows at every concert we have played, again we thank you from the heart......maybe 'somewhere sometime' we will meet again....
We wish you a Happy and above all, a Peaceful 2005.......
Lotsa love
John & Iris,
and JLB ....Benjy, Steve, Leon and Erol"

"Hi Everyone,
Just a quick note to thank all of you for your great support over the last few years and to say how much I am looking forward to sharing a lot of new music and video with you in 2005.  Apart from the two Anthologies which we are all very excited about, I have already started work on my next solo CD of new songs which will be released in the Spring and then there?s the book.....
I have completed the outline for the musical, 'LIFE' which I will start to develop in the Spring and which I hope will see its theatre debut in the Spring of 2006.
So life is busy here on the farm but I am always reminded of the simple fact that without all of you, none of this would be possible at all!!
So, thanks again from the bottom of my heart, stay safe and well and love one another!
God bless,
Ken
<><"

- There's some negotiations going on in order to bring the Ken Hensley Band to play in Australia.  If you want to help, you just need to visit
http://www.coppel.com.au/html/c_tr_fs.html , click on "Tour Wishlist" (the fourth link on the top menu), and choose 3 bands (so, you can also ask for Uriah Heep!).  Call your friends to vote too, it can make the difference!

- Help the people in Southeast Asia!

You are all aware of the terrible catastrophe that has hit Southeastern Asia one day after Christmas, killing thousands of people (the number of losses is now around 100,000 people, although it is hard to know for sure).  The countries affected include Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, India, Malaysia, the Maldives, Burma, Bangladesh, Somalia, Kenya, Seychelles and Tanzania.  A number of disaster funds have been set up to help provide the desperately needed aid these countries now need.  If you would like to make a donation to any of these funds then please visit the links below:

Kim Fletcher is a dedicated Heepster living in Thailand who has already written some articles about Uriah Heep's music for the local newspaper.  He also runs an Irish Pub called Shenanigans (
http://www.shenanigans-pattaya.com/) in the city of Pattaya.  After the tragic events in Asia this week, he's organizing a collection of clothes at Shenanigans Pattaya to be taken down south.  If anyone is at present in Pattaya and has some spare old clothes, shoes, blankets etc., please bring them into Shenanigans for collection.  Please remember a lot of these people now have nothing, and will be grateful for your compassion.  There is an urgent need NOW for blood down south.  If you have "RH, Negative" blood, of any group ('A', 'B', 'AB', 'O', etc.) please help.  A bus from the Red Cross Hospital in Sriracha is in Pattaya, with nurses to do the collections.  They park on Pattaya 2nd Road very near the Grand Sole Hotel and are working in the small clinic located directly behind where the bus is parked.  They will be here again TODAY 30/12 from 9am thru 8pm.  If you are unable to go during these times, you may then go to Somdej Red Cross Hospital in Sriracha (038-322-157).  To contact Kim, please go to http://www.shenanigans-pattaya.com/ .
