Seasonal Greetings from John Leyton

Yes, it’s that time of year again and I ask myself ‘Where has the year gone?’ As many of you know I had to go into Hospital for an operation at the end of September, which meant that I was unable to tour with Marty Wilde, Eden Kane and The Wildcats.

However the good news is that I am now on the way to a full recovery and am looking forward to 2013.

In the meantime I would like to thank all of you who have sent me messages wishing me well and would like to wish you all a 'Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.'
John

John Leyton Update

John was successfully operated on last week and has just returned home. He now needs to spend a lot of time to recover from what was a fairly major operation. In the Meantime he has asked me to thank the many of you for your ‘get well soon’ messages and hopefully he’ll be able to resume concert appearances sometime during 2013.
Steve.
(John’s Manager)
