RE: [Harp-L] Randy McAllister Critically Injured in Auto Accident

Since I posted the initial bad news, I supposed I get to post the updated good news:
Friday, January 11th Randy was released from the hospital and is working on a fast recovery. He is getting back to completing his new CD, writing and plans to make all scheduled live performances.
That's quite a turnaround from critical to not missing a gig.  I hope it isn't overly optimistic.  Nonetheless, this is remarkably good news.
(Also, for the record, when I sent my long post on when I first met Randy, it had paragraphs.  Somewhere between here and there, it was smooshed into one long rambling paragraph.  My stuff is hard enough to follow with paragraphs...)

His e-mail address is available on the frontpage of his website. I don't know his stance on spirituality, but I've added him to my prayer list. I'm sure he'd appreciate it if others did the same.> > >From his website (> > 1/10/08 - Monday, January 7th while returning to Texas from Louisiana, singer/songwriter Randy McAllister's car was struck by an on-coming 18-wheeler.

Please no phone calls, emails of encouragement are appreciated. > > > I learned the news in a response to a post of mine on another forum. I'll post that story separately so as not to mix serious tragic news and my at least somewhat humorous first encounter with him just a little over a month ago.> > Jonathan Compton_______________________________________________> Harp-L is sponsored by SPAH,> Harp-L@xxxxxxxxxx>
