Best wishes and prayers to one of the main cogs of Elvis' great (and still under-rated) '70s sound! Rock on, JB!

Be careful James. I have seen you two weeks ago at the Palais de Congrès in Paris and I wish to see you again with the TCB Band on stage.

Gotta be careful at those intersections out there... In Sweden they have this roundabout construction frenzy, wich makes it more safe, but anoying as hell to drive in. Anyway, hoping for quick a recovery for you James.
