Update from James

Yes folks, we have word from James, and the news is all good. His recovery has gone exceedingly well, he is back out, about and feeling rather good about life. And as he has since this process started for him, James thoroughly appreciates all the support, messages and patience you've all offered.

"My rough road has become smoother reading the show of support from the friends I've met through Metallica," he says. "Thank you. They move me deeply."

And we can say with absolute certainty that (such has become the Metalli-mantra) your patience will be rewarded. "My music and lyrix have always been therapy for me," James added. "Without this God-given gift I don't know where I'd be. And now I TRULY feel the impact and connection it's made with others."

We're sure you join us all in saying "nice one James and see ya soon buddy."
