The Enid's Robert John Godfrey 'Not Fearful' Of Alzhiemer's
He's planning to stop appearing on stage with the band in the near future - but he's not ending his creative career. The band turned heads at last year's inaugural HRH Prog festival with their new line-up, featuring frontman Joe "I've Been Naughty" Payne. That following the release of Invicta, their first album with the 24-year-old vocalist.
Later in 2013 Godfrey revealed his diagnosis to Prog's sister magazine Classic Rock, saying: "A point will come when it won't be a voluntary decision for me, it'll be a compulsory one. I'm going to try and provide the means for this band to have a life without any involvement from me. If they want to carry on with it, they can; and if they don't want to they don't have to."
Now the veteran prog musician tells the BBC: "I'm not fearful of the future - I've made the decision to retire and I'm looking to stop participating on stage as soon as possible." A lot more.
