Galahad update & DVD Print E-mail
Tuesday, 19 September 2006
Galahad drummer Spencer Luckman will be rounding off 2006 with a week on the road around Europe as the band take in a short tour in support of a new DVD release "Resonance - Live in Poland". It's a tour Spencer is extremely glad to be on.

In April this year Spencer was taken ill after collapsing; Doctors initially thought he may have Multiple Scoliosis or Epilepsy. These conditions were ruled out and Spencer was confirmed as suffering from a brain tumour which needed immediate removal. His operation was delayed slightly to allow him time to travel to Poland to play in Katowice. Galahad's performance supporting Pendragon is to be released shortly on DVD. .........continued below:
Upon returning to the UK Spencer underwent surgery (while fully awake!) in early June to remove the tumour and he required a short amount of physiotherapy to assist him in learning to walk again. The tumour was confirmed as cancerous and Spencer then underwent 6 weeks of radio therapy.

In July Galahad recommenced rehearsals to allow Spencer to get the feel for drumming again. Since then he has made steady progress behind the kit and is almost back to full strength. Spencer commented "having suffered paralysis in my left side after the operation, I had to relearn how to play the drums and relearn all the Galahad songs, it's not been easy!" Preparation for the tour continues and the band are now putting the finishing touches to the live set with their first date being at the Classic Rock Society in Rotherham on Saturday 11 November.

Lead vocalist Stu Nichcolson added "Spencer has gone through something which is unimaginable for the rest of us, he's done really well to come back from it like this. We can't wait to get out on the road, and we're only too glad that Spencer is with us".

Spencer and the band would like to thank all of the medical staff at Southampton General and Poole Hospitals involved in Spencer's case, as well as our fans across the globe for their support during this testing time, but as we always say:

It's only a matter of going!
