Positive news regarding my hands. They seem to be functioning as normal again, allowing me to ease my way back into playing. The forced break has allowed me to re-define my approach and ambitions for the future, so I am looking forward hopefully, to new beginnings and continued musical nonsense :-) All the best everyone, and thankyou for stopping by.. some latest news below..

March 30th 2009
Plans for any live appearances by Rob with either Fula or The Rob Gould Band have had to be put on hold for the time being as Rob is suffering from Reynalds Syndrome. The condition, effecting Robs hands, seems to have been brought on by our long cold and damp winter this year in England.
This won't stop studio work, and Rob, has been recording 2 more tracks for David Winstanley's CRS Follies. The songs, penned by Mr. Dave, are in complete contrast to each other; one, a heartfelt ballad entitled When You Walked The Earth (think Peter Hammill meets Kate Bush - and you're not too far off the mark!)..the other, a longer experimental, almost atonal, atmospheric piece, called Portrait Of a Lost Soul.
Rob has also contributed keyboards to a track composed by John Patterson, (Fula drummer) which will be used as backing for a special "drum-off" between John and The Verve's Pete Salisbury. More details on date and venue for this one-off charity performance soon.
More recordings have been added to the next Rob Gould solo cd (working title: The Lightness Of Being). It is hoped that the new album will be ready for release in the summer.
