Le mot de Paul 

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE FANS OF THE STRANGLERS........

Dear all,
I would like to keep this as simple as possible.
It is with very heavy heart I have to inform you that after nearly sixteen years it has been mutually agreed that I part company with the band - we had some incredible times and adventures together that will stay with me forever.I wish them every success.
It means a lot to me that I have this opportunity to thank all of those among you who have expressed your appreciation of my efforts - form the deepest part of my heart and soul.
You really are the best fans any band could have.
All I would hope is that you always felt that I gave you and my colleagues 100% - I know no other way.
I wish all of you the very best in whatever you are doing or wherever you find yourselves in life.
I shall miss you all.
I shall of course continue to perform and record with my on-going projects and would welcome you with open arms to the 'Soulsec' website or out on the road somewhere,sometime - so, don't be strangers.
Once again I thank you all with all my heart for your generosity and support over the last fifteen - odd years. We have had some truly awesome times eh??.....please take care.....
Most sincerely yours.

Paul xxxx.
