"Thanks for all the kind messages of support just a quick update, Im about 60% through treatment and everything is going very well. I feel pretty good and looking forward to the Spring when I will be done. Working on lots of new musical projects with lots of interesting new people and instruments... X"

Message from Robert:

“I am very proud to be a patron of Heart Research UK – their determined focus on pioneering research into the understanding and treatment of cardiovascular disease, and their drive to improve the heart health of the UK is inspiring.

Someone dies of heart diseases every 5 minutes in the UK – I have very sadly seen too many friends and family fall victim over the years.”
