The Sunday following not good, not Easter Sunday, but the following Sunday, damn it, gelong. But they have lots of other gigs as well in between their going all over the East Coast and to Adelaide. It's kind of a the road to scar nation tour. So I think it's kind of book ended by SCAR Nation. So will be absolutely brilliant check out. Lost come from monkeys and scar nation and there's all sorts going on. I've seen him live a couple of times. Lost come from monkeys and they are absolutely tremendous. They're gonna blow your mind. If you haven't seen them before, they're on to all the resumes and if you're in Brisbane, blow hard are going to be plain. Oh Yeah, saw them last year at the dead of winter vessel and they blew the roof off. Did they get the crowd going? Oh, yes, they did. So stay tuned. Look for lost come from muggoose and the resonators dates all across the East Coast and Adelaide should be fun. Now, I promised you. The interviewer, ringing Roger. This was done on, I believe, who was New Year's Eve, and he talks about his stroke and he talks about how he got diagnosed with the brain tumors at the same time when they were treating for strokes and he was fine and fit, very, very...

...said. Anyway, I'll let you go. We're here to talk about a surprise turn of events in Roger's life at the end of two thousand and eighteen. Roget, the last line of your book is a slightly paraphrase, but it says the only thing that was stopped me doing what I'm doing will be ill health. The books finished and then the next thing is you have his extraordinary revelation in your life. Can you talk as through the events? Yeah, what happened? Well, we're halfway through touring and obviously we're doing some gigs in the era, or getting ready to do some gigs in the ear, Sweden, I think, and followed by and the first of America, which is going to come up in a couple of months time. Afterwards, and all of a sudden I had the stroke and lost all the use of my right hat. Also found out that I had had a team in my brain, well to team as in my brain, and one had to be operated on as soon as possible, and that was obviously the first time I knew of this. The second one, the said could hold but one day I'd have, might have to have it out, but it didn't seem as bad as the first one. The first one I to be removed immediately and I found out that I've got lung cancer as far as I'm concerned. But give him a treatment for it, immune our therapy, which is meant to be better than the other one, chemo therapy, and it's meant to stop the growth or shrink is so I'm meant to be on that for the next two years now, but it doesn't stop me wanting to go out and Gig, you know, and do the things I do. All that be as inspirational as I can for the people. But it slowed me down a bit. I've had to have about to have rest, which would doctor said first, and this is right, you need you need six months off. You can't do nothing for six months and I've done that. All I can say is I have to wait and see. I'm dying to start rehearsals. I can't wait for that. I think that's going to be really good. So we have to organize that. I know I can sing. I ain't got a problem with that. It's just that I don't think I'll be running around the stage as what as I was, certainly for the first three months or six months, because I wouldn't want to see you on stage, you know. But I'm quite kind of just being honest to myself. You don't want to go out there and be straight after you know, it's like you just hurt yourself. You know, take it as it comes. So I know I can sing still, that's not a problem with the voice, but and I know I can scank still. I never forget how to do that, but I just mustn't get too excited and start darting across the stage again, and I think eventually I probably will be able to, you know, and we'll just see how this treatment goes, you know, and that's all I can say. But I've got a lot of optimism, you know. And now I'll be somewhere around, you know, doing the forty if anniversary. I've got to be on stage age, you know, and and share myself and show my peasants again. Well, it's the music as well, but every time the Gigi is finished or nearly finished, I just see pure smiling faces. So you know I'm not that's what I'm doing, the right thing. And the righteous think, you know, they're not OURC had an aggressive at all. You know, they're a universal bunch, and I think I will survive this. I think I will. You know, I've got a lot of strength in it. And you know, all the fans and all the people, you know I love you, man. You know I mean, and you know I don't want to start crying or anything, but you know, it's it's the most brilliant job you could have. I could have had anyone that could have add it's been in an entertainment as an entertainer, and you can be in front of all those people and you can move them and make an all happy. That's the most joyous thing that I could have done, you know, and I've done it, you know, and I'm also satisfied. I'm not saying it's the end of my life, but what I am saying is the life I have had I've really enjoyed, you know, good or bad, and it's important that I just go on, you know, respecting and enjoying the rest of my life under any capacity. So as soon as I can get out there and I know it's safe, I'll be out. I mean, it was extraordinary last year because when you reformed the beat in the mid two thousands, you were playing to just a few hundred people as twist and crawl, and then the beat featuring will rank and Rogin. You've built it and built it and built it, and last year... did a co headline with the selector. Three thousand people ran to the hill they are and it was an extraordinary night. And I mean I've seen you several times over the last cup few years and the one thing that you can guarantee. When you came to see you play, even up to the very last time last year, and I saw you play, was that the energy level of you on stage. You'd be hard pushed to separate it from one thousand nineteen eight, one thousand nine hundred and eighty one. It's extraordinary. I mean, yeah, Bill A, dancing now I'd say that's the one from the old, as I want you to do. But yeah, I mean it is phenomenal how that music has lived as long as it has. So it's some me. It's got to be special because it it's survived. You know, it's not just like any music. It's a special music and only the beat sound like the beach. So it's it's so what will the steps be for you in two thousand and nine? Is it kind of out nineteen? Is it outline medically? What? What will be happening to you for the next few months? I don't know really. I mean, obviously I'll be on this immun our ferry pippink, and this is the reason why you still got your dreads, because it's Anon as opposed to chemo. That's right, I think half my jeers with a fell that fell out. If it was chemo therapys, definitely, obviously. I've had one session which afterwards I had a seizure right within about two weeks, which I've never had a seizure before, and it scared me. Walk up in hospital, didn't know what was going on and and that's when they operated on the second one all of a sudden, because my speech wasn't really good when I after I had the first one, but after I had the second one, became much clearer and, you know, much more active, you know, hmm. And it's been fabulous support for you, hasn't I mean now, as I'll say in the fans, you know. I can't believe you know that. And now you've found all this. I don't know what you're going to say, but I mean just for a little mini stroke, you were like get well soon, you know, and how you recover quickly and Blah, blah, blah, and we need your back and discern that. It's like intensely more serious what's going on. And I must be brave because I'm not scared. All the mean nuts. I must be broke because I'm not scared, and all I can be is what I've been all my life, and that's positive. You know I mean, and you know you know. Don't despair. Just be positive about all this and if you want, you can say you put us for me. You know, I'm all right for now. You know, I'm feeling every day that my it's getting clearer and I'm a other lot of short term memory, which is quite funny because in ours turning around to people and saying, what did you say again three minutes ago, you know, because it was a lot like that, you know, and some of my own life I was forgetting, but once reminded, he just you know, it's like a little chicksaw building up again, you know. Yeah, well, we need your voice on stage because there's always a prime minister that need shout him down and told to stand down. You're the man to do it. That's right. Thank you. Thank you. Beyond the door, in a moment of time, I take a look outside the circle, just beyond the square. You really care. But I wouldn't want to be like you because you're hiding from I wouldn't want to be like you to afraid to try. Afraid to try. It's open the safety off a stream. There's a snail's a sleester yawning as she did to dream. There's a pyramid of stone slowly putting in the sand. There's a man that feels security's a perfect when I wouldn't want to be like you. I wouldn't want to... afraid to try. I'm not wasting tears in a handker cheek. There's a child is climbing high pine tree. There's a mountain near, on the edge, but he knows he's free. I wouldn't want to be like you to afraid to try your friend to try. I wouldn't want to be like you to afraid to try your friend. I wouldn't want to feel the rock. So you got to come alone of the unity sorrow. See no joy, bright man, and you tell me how I'm so white. Lord, what's a short shot? That's what's a third world stand start. Sometimes wonder if I live and get the judge just to sit with my Juldren in a holiday job. You ever given everybody shout stand down to the city wall? Ten said I love unity all. Tell you why, Lord, shot.

Please done, no, Mong starn, no mom and please done stund no, man, please donum mom stund no, please don they say history never repeats. But stand down, Margaret or we got stand down theres and I would have been the next single from the beat. I reckon, because the UK going through turmoil as we speak. Well, there you go. What a show it's been today. We're still going strong, we still paying tribute to ranking Raja and the beat. Hope you've been having fun. I'n'T had an absolute ball. That interview is so, so telling that the guy was still up for life whatever was thrown at him. You know, he had a stroke, diagnosed with brain tumors and then when they were treating his brain tumors, the realize he had lung cancer as well. So incredible, incredible but, like I said, still up for it. Was Keen to get singing. Got told of a bit of time off, which probably didn't and then obviously this week succumbed to whatever was going on inside the man's body. Sad said, week. Really am still trying to get over it because sir one of my favorite bands on I first started getting into scat and live music, and obviously you can hear from all the live stuff I've played today that what a band. What a band live and just the energy just absolutely incredible. Anyway. Benarta, London, Essex, in fact called death a guitar pup. I love this tune is called a rickety old train. It's just awesome. Time seems other peoples with the drive just an outbody say wake up.

Or was that the noise of my love? Isn't that time I take again? Not Enough Coffee, too much. Now I want memory to say. Made me say was for the job. Forget the lead. You back lest drink. I thought it was always love to people from the whole thought you were stuck looking flow away to get remage. I could have done it easy, but I'm thinking back a way. Something special made me sick. Was for the job. I thought I was. I guess I forget a little. Dans last special you think make me sick was right for the job.

I love that tune from the porker is absolutely love it. Make Hay I was the kind of late track off. There new music from last year playing a few gigs as well. It just a n's another area seven versus the pork is Gig as well, Adelaide, June eight. So that will be phenomenal. Those gigs, those two bands on a bill just for Menus. They also put a teaser out last week about what city is next. There's obviously more of those area. Seven versus the pork is gigs to be a name. So hopefully it'll be Melbourne. But wherever they go they're gonna draw crowd absolutely special. Well, hopefully you have enjoyed this little tribute to ranking Roger and the beat done my little bit. I'm truly truly gutted really, because we saw him last year. So I've seen the beat probably four or five times and one of my favorite live bands of all time. So I'm hoping, hoping that it carries on best you can, but it's going to be very, very difficult. Please enjoy your weekend, get out, have some fun, go and see a live music act, whether it be scar, whether it be pop, whatever you want. Celebrate the good times, because it's can all finish up tomorrow, unfortunately. So thinking of the family, thinking of everyone, thinking of the Scar Community and hopefully you've had a bit of fun as afternoon celebrating the life and times of ranking Roger and he's great. Great Music, the energy, everything else. It's yeah, fantastic. Give us a shout on the facebook page that just look up the scar show with me, beefy. If you're in a band, please send me your music.
