Some good news

Post by JörgMichael » Fri Dec 24, 2010 1:31 pm

Dear All, this is Jörg speaking, finally.

I hope this message finds everybody well and everybody is in an easy-peasy Christmas mood already. The first leg of the European tour with Helloween is over – time to have a few words with you.

First of all, let's not forget the brilliant emergency rescue action and playing of Alex, thanx again for all what you did for the fans, the band and also for me.

Surely I hate the idea of somebody sitting on "my chair" but this special action needed some special treatment and I am proud and happy that it was you, Alex. Thanx again, we'll get together for a real drink, not like these other Scandinavian pussies in the band :-)

I was overwhelmed by all the wishes, tons of emails and text messages I received from all over the world wishing me a speedy recovery. Thank you so much for supporting me, and it made me feel very strong when fighting these bastards inside of me.

I have some good news to tell you and believe me - I really enjoy to tell the world:

The surgery was done about 6 weeks ago and the first therapy is done as well. All looks good so far and as Jens told me before: "Do not worry Jörg, nothing survives in your body after all what you did to it!"

Finally he was right, there are only small bits and bobs left - I will fight those with another therapy in about 4 months time.

I think I have been very lucky that it was discovered by one of my friends in a very early state. Very good that my friend decided to become a doctor, he was very lousy when he tried playing the guitar.

Besides preparing myself for Christmas, I am currently practicing the drums to be ready and kickin' again when the tour continues in the new year. I will be back, thanx again for everything and let's get alive and kicking once again, see you in Paris and everywhere else......

Best,
Jörg Michael

Great news indeed! Stratovarius is not Stratovarius without you. Now, should I vote yes or yes...

Seems like Yes! is going to win :O

Jörg, wir freuen uns unheimlich von dir zu hören! Wir sind froh und erleichtert, dass du die OP und die erste Chemo gut überstanden hast, und sind fest davon überzeugt, dass du auch die letzten Reste, die vielleicht noch da sein mögen, in der nächsten Zeit schon aus dir raus drummen wirst :lol: Du kannst dir sicher sein, dass deine Fans dich weiter unterstützen werden.

Dir und deiner Familie ein schönes Weihnachtsfest - ich kann mir gerade kein schöneres Weihnachtsgeschenk vorstellen als dich wieder auf den Beinen zu haben :)

Now that he's back, the possibilities to record a videoclip for Darkest Hours (or Infernal Maze) are very high!

German Rock Hard news from today:

Alex Landenburg, the replacement for Stratovarius' drummer Jörg Michael, has thanked Jörg, the band members, the Helloween guys and the crew for the great time he had on tour - in spite of the dramatic circumstances. His statement: "It was a weird situation. Sometimes I felt a little bit guilty for having such a great time. But since I met Jörg directly before the tour started and saw that he felt a lot better already, I knew he'd be back soon, and that made things a lot easier."
