Unsung Guitar Great : Andy Latimer Of Camel

I'd like to take this time to send out my extreme best wishes and encouragement to one of the all time greats of rock guitar, founding Camel guitarist Andy Latimer, who is going through a rough time right now. Andy has suffered from a progressive blood disorder since 1992, which has since progressed to myelofibrosis. Latimer has responded well to treatment, but suffers from fatigue. This was part of the reason why Camel ceased extensive touring. In late 2007, he underwent a bone marrow transplant and his doctors are currently monitoring his progress. Currently Andy is back in the hospital since early February, and hopefully it won't be for much longer. Get well soon Andy and keep the faith!

Check out this classic clip from the Camel DVD 'Coming Of Age', a stirring version of "Ice":
