Hi Everybody
I'm sure those of you who saw my last Instagram post will know that I have the virus but good news is that today I feel immeasurably better and feel it's reaching its end. I've felt better before and it returns but this time I really feel it's turned a corner. I wanted to post to show that we are all in the same boat and anyone can get the virus. I've now removed the post as its done its job and who wants that bringing them down? Life's bad enough! There's lots of very funny visual jokes going round at present, most of bad taste, but we need that humour.

Nothing can protect you from the virus but your common sense and nothing is totally foolproof because even going to the supermarket is fraught with risks every time you touch something. Please be careful and responsible and think of others. Look after yourselves and follow the advice by the Government. Just because maybe you don't follow Boris or the Conservatives, please don't think "I'm going to ignore him"; everybody is singing from the same sheet in the end. Social distancing, isolation, gatherings of no more than two, no panic buying - the warehouses are full of stock and produce and the factories are making more food products and toilet rolls every day. Just get what you need and try to eat healthy.

Needless to say there is virtually no music business or entertainment industry at the moment, ironic as we need it now more than ever. Many of my concerts have been cancelled or postponed until Autumn or early next year. Quite a few things still in for Autumn, fingers crossed and with all the hope in the world, but we can only see. It will take a while for things to recover but when it does I hope to see you fit and healthy. For those people whose jobs are at risk at present my heart goes out to you and I hope something can be salvaged for you from this mess.

Listen to music, discover new music, read books and watch all your favourite films. Have a life clear out.

I hope its not long before I can bring you good news.

Lots of love and warm safe wishes

MARC
