Hi Zarrs people.
I've left the last blog posting up because it is maybe significant. I don't know. It's certainly been a long time between posts anyhow. Certainly in my life it has been significant.
It's been over two years in fact, yes that's TWO YEARS since the last Zarrs blog appeared. I read it, too. It's not very good is it? Not very inspiring at all. All a bit blah.... No, it's all right (or alright) you can agree without hurting anyone's feelings. Certainly not mine! After all we're only here to make music, not anything else, right?
Although, is that absolutely true? An absolute say, like absolute zero or something? Well maybe not. Anyhow what is true is that I, Eddie, have been preoccupied with other things and one of them has been a serious 'bout' of depression. Serious enough to get me into serious trouble (which I won't go into here) and serious enough for me to eventually seek medical help. Serious enough that I haven't felt 'worthy' of reaching out to you to remind you that we have some really nice tee shirts and a great Zarrs hoodie on our website. Since the last blog post I have been seeing someone to help and working with him to find my old (or new) self. I think we're finally bringing me out of the mire. Which is great because remembering lyrics (yeah, I know I wrote them but still...) and remembering to take my pills has been really difficult. I see now that men do have a basic multi-tasking problem! Like being in a band though, I was unable to get out by myself.
So anyhow, The Zarrs are back (thanks for staying with me guys throughout) and we've got some serious new stuff coming up in the next few months so do stay in touch.
Please don't get me wrong I'm not looking for sympathy or donations at all (though tee shirts sales would obviously alleviate my problem lol) but just wanted you guys to know that The Zarrs are back and back with a passion and we hope to see you at a gig soon - starting with the 6th of March in Uxbridge.
Please come if you can but, more importantly, please be a little less judgemental of our fellow beings. They may look great but unless they're boiling bunnies we really don't know what is going on behind the scenes.
Thanks for reading and be well.
