Hello O people of the Frostiverse.
 It is with mixed emotions that I must tell you that I'm to take an
 indefinite break from playing the drums with the band that is known to you
 as Frost*
 I have recently become a full-time teacher of music at the College of
 Kidderminster and  my duties with the talented youth of it's environs will
 place a great strain on my ability to travel in various planes, boats and
 white vans about the place doing gigs.
 After a big big big chat with Jem we decided it would be best for me to
 stop gigging with the band known as Frost*  although I hope my total
 involvement with the said band won't stop (as there are so many things a
 band can do as well as gig!)
 'What' I hear you ask!
 and also you may ask
 'why stop gigging?'
 My reason for doing music is coz I like to do music. Write it, record it
 and think of different ways of doing it. Of all the bits involved in
 making it the bit I like the least is gigging.
 If my time is going to be restricted then it is that bit which I would
 like to curtail.
 I also feel that the music business is about to change dramatically. I
 think Frost could play a vital part in that change and I want to be free
 to be involved in that if I can, not spend the little spare time I have
 rehearsing and travelling to gigs.
 I love Frost*. I love the guys so much too. I have laughed so much and had
 a great time. I thank everyone who has supported the band and allowed us
 to make and break the rules.

 I hope this change of affairs will allow us to make and break the rules
 even more.
 Here's to the future and all who sail in her.

Wow ... didnt expect that, I thought you'd landed a life changing gig and were about to travel the world ! .. completely the opposit in fact .. when you've only got limited time, best to use it doing something you love ! Good luck !
... it was like watching a peach jelly f##k a steel drum ..  


Can you buy shares in the College of Kidderminster?? Cos they will be going through the roof!!

Pleased for you Andy, really am. Although you will be missed onstage with Jem and the lads, the knowledge and enthusiasm you will be able to share and give to others is priceless. Good luck with it all.   :D

Hmmm..  :idea: 'The Frost* Academy of Music'... now there's an idea!!!
I am out of the office. Messages can be left with Mr. C Lyons on 020 7722 3333


Sorry to see you go, Mr. Edwards.  We hardly knew ye.  Brilliant work with Frost*, iQ#, Acoustic@ Treat% and your work on "Progressive^."

Congratulations on your new endeavor.  Your CoK students are in good hands.  :?

I look forward to hearing what you come up with next.

Best of luck.
...and I can feel the world is turning...turn around


All the best Andy, good luck with the career move!


I think that the first 'teaching' job will be explaining to your replacement how to get that mysterious 13th beat into place  ;)

...and of course you can teach keyboards as well
cue 'oboe' solo  :shock:
When the future\'s looking dark, we\'re the ones who have to shine...


Andy, all of us hear wish you success and are absolutely delighted for you and also your plans to not leave Frost* totally. We wish you luck and enjoyment.
What about your involvement with IQ?


We'll miss you, but it's difficult to sulk when someone gets to do something they really want to do! Good luck!

Quote from: "Andys Blog"Recently IQ has reduced it's live output more and more. This year we are doing 3 and 3/4 gigs so I do hope with my restricted schedule to still be able to carry on with IQ.

Answered my own question.


Quote from: "eponymous"Frost*warts.

Ooh! That sounds painful. Is that like some kind of carbuncular growth commonly found on Frost*bitten extremities?

...All the best in yer new thang Andy. It's been a pleasure listening to your work with the band.


You're an amazing drummer and you'll be missed. But I'm glad you have the opportunity to do something you've always wanted to do. Good luck and all the best!
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)



Go for it Andy!

Life's too short for regrets, so take the chances and do the things you love!

Hope it all goes really well :)
So many keyboards, so little time!


Splitter  :D

Please see previous compliments
I used to have a signature


All Power to the Professor of Prog! (not to mention funk and punk).
Oh, and will the gents tailors of Kidderminster be having a run on tweed jackets with leather elbow pads? ;)

All the very best for the future Andy.
