I heard an interview with Edwyn Collins on the radio today talking, along with his wife about his recovery from the brain haemorrhage that saw him hospitalised and doctors fearing the worst. He’s had to re learn so much and his speech is still affected and he can’t use his right hand but has learnt to draw with his left hand. He’d completed recording an album prior to his haemorrhage but had not mixed the album which he has now done.
It was good to hear that Edwyn was back with us and was emotionally touched by the experience that he and his wife have gone through. They recounted a personal and touching story and I admit I was transfixed listening to the interview and not without a lump in my throat at times.
