Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

Just back from a whirlwind trip around the UK to see Dennis Dunaway, Al Bouchard and Joe Bouchard (Blue Coupe) bring a lesson in how to rock to some pretty obscure parts of the country! A big thanks to everyone who turned out to see the guys play and made it a great few days, and especially to Dennis, Al, Joe and Cindy for being so cool and friendly, and even inviting a rather nervous, not-so-special guest, to play 'Eighteen' with them last night in Clitheroe!!! You guys are the best! If you haven't caught the show you still have one last chance tomorrow night at the Grand in Clitheroe. Don't miss it if you're in the area. Word is Blue Coupe are hoping to return to the UK sometime later in the year so let's hope it works out!

Slash has one of the best bands around, and he has joined me on stage many times. It was great to return the favor in Dubai!"
