The Enid's Robert John Godfrey 'Not Fearful' Of Alzhiemer's

(Prog) The Enid mastermind Robert John Godfrey has confirmed he's "not fearful" of dealing with Alzheimer's disease, after revealing last year he'd been diagnosed with the condition.

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.
