This is really sad

Submitted: “Bassist Bradley Quinn Andress of the up-and-coming rock band Close To Home was recently diagnosed with a deadly form of cancer while on tour with his band across the U.S. Andress, 20, was told he would die when flu-like symptoms brought him into a hospital after a show and it was discovered he had a seven-inch tumor on one of his lungs. That lung was removed, but Andress will still have to undergo an additional surgery to see if the cancer has spread. Andress was already a cancer survivor of the deadly disease liposarcoma, for which he received treatment less than a year ago, but he now faces another battle. “They say I’m going to die. At first, I was so scared after hearing it, but I’m going to be okay, I’m going to fight this. I did it before, I will do it again,” he says. “All I want to do is go back on tour.” To make a donation to “Brad’s Fight For Cancer Fund,” visit Close To Home’s website at www.closetohomerock.com or
contact Christina Ahadi at Christina@indie-fusion.com. Andress can be
emailed directly at Brad@closetohomerock.com. “

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
