Thank you once again John.

Great to see, in his answer to the last question, that Andy feels an affinity, dare I say responsibility (?) to the still loyal fan base.

I know Manzo's still as keen as mustard on the Roxy front, so we'll just have to wait and see (although none of us are getting any younger, band included!)

Having so enjoyed Roxymphony at the QE Hall, I'd love to see a continuation of that idea, on the grounds that I can actually live without lyrics, but not music.

Glad to hear activity on the Metaphors front as well; I managed to miss their first gigs and am determined not to make that error again!!!

Thank you John. Great interview.

@Andy :

You are so right !!!

Pulling Bryan's ears off, he's also in charge ... even the Roxy fans are getting older and can not wait forever ...

@Stabbs MacKenzie :

You're saying that Manzo is spicy like mustard ... Do you have any information how Bryan is sorting the situation right now?

Hmm, milking it comes to my mind. This article says much of the same as the previous one. We`ve heard, more or less, this story from the 2007 recordings before. It is a bit vague. Bryan comes across as a very introverted guy. -Wouldn`t write lyrics for a whole new group album. -Had some songs from before that he wanted to develop. What to think? However, the sessions started well.

Here is an interview or statement from Manzo, dated 07.02.2018 Ultimate Classic Rock. From this I take it carefully that he is not as hot as mustard ... sounds more like a later rectification ...

Yeah, an 180 degree`s turn from Phil. "I can`t write lyrics anymore" - we know that isn`t true. He released Avonmore after that.

Pretty much proving the point.

To be fair, there weren't many 'new lyrics' on Avonmore and some were quite weak, especially compared to Bryan at his best. I think a whole album of lyrics, (half-decent, or otherwise) is beyond him now, and coupled with his fading voice it might be best if they don't finish the album. That said, an instrumental album could be interesting.
