I'm not sure if this is the right place to post but Rod (username Beach) is currently in hospital. Some of his friends here may know that he has been battling cancer for some time. He is hoping it is just a lung infection at present and not something more sinister.
Rod is one of Australia's great jazz/blues/R'n'B singers, certainly my favourite. He's also a great mate. I'll try and keep up with any postings so I can pass them onto him when I speak to him next.
In the meantime check out his talent, this is a great one!
