The Enid's Robert John Godfrey Announces Retirement From Touring

(Classic Rock) The Enid's Robert John Godfrey says he'll retire from live touring next month. He'll appear with the band for the final time onstage at London's Cadogan Hall on April 2 - the last date on their road trip in support of latest album Dust, which is out on April 1.

Godfrey, who was diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer's disease in 2014, has decided to step back from playing live - although he'll still be involved in the group's studio work.

He tells Prog: "The time has come for me to cross the footlights and devote myself into building our wonderful fan club, The Enidi, into a force to be reckoned with. I still have a few things up my sleeve before the sun sets upon my life's work."

The Enid's live musician Zachary Bullock will take over keyboard duties on a permanent basis after April, while Nic Willes will return on bass and percussion. Frontman Joe Payne will also play additional keyboards where needed. Read more here.
