The Editors Saved My Soul
From : Trevor Hewson
I’d been enthralled by the Editors doing Racing Rats on Later With Jools Holland. However I’d stopped going to gigs thinking all that was behind me. Then almost exactly 10 years ago I broke my leg horribly, nearly losing it. That made things worse, I’d lost the other things I enjoyed, sports, hills and being me. I became very low and my wife tried loads to help but I was adrift. She then bought me tickets to go to my first gig in years, the Editors in Birmingham. I watched enthralled on one good leg and a knackered one. I started to get back the energy you only get from seeing a band play live. The energy turned into a buzz that turned into the first joy I’d had in months. That night the Editors saved me and I’ve never looked back. Cheers lads.
