Help Our Brother, Scott Sorry

On December 22nd, our brother Scott Sorry was diagnosed with a cystic brain tumour.

He will be undergoing surgery on December 26th, with the hope the surgeons will be able to remove it successfully, but as Scott lives in the US, the costs of his medical treatment are very large.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help raise some funds to help Scott and his family out – there’s no good time for news like this, but Christmas time seems to add an extra cruel twist to the news. If you are able, please spare whatever cash you can – the cost of a pint with your mates, for example, would all go to help out Scott with his recovery. You can donate at www.gofundme.com/scottsorry

Thank you for your support!

Scott Sorry bids farewell to The Wildhearts

Scott (who joined the band in 2007) played bass on three albums – 2007’s self titled album, 2008’s covers album ‘Stop Us If You’ve Heard This One Before, Vol 1’ and 2009’s Chutzpah! Below is a statement from Scott:

“Throughout my career as a musician I have never been more proud to be a part of something as I have in The Wildhearts. I’ve had the honor to play with the most talented musicians/songwriters that I could have ever dreamed of. The only thing I love more than being a Wildheart is my family. With my oldest son being diagnosed with Autism, I need to give them the most stable environment possible. Unfortunately, that stability does not include me playing in a band across the ocean in a different country.

So with much respect and a heavy heart I am bowing out of my favorite band. I just can’t commit to the time the band would need from me anymore. I love those guys like brothers and wish them and you all the best. I’m sure I’ll see you all again as retirement doesn’t really stick well to guys like me, but for now I bid you a fond farewell. Thank you for everything.

Sincerely Scott Sorry x”

The Wildhearts would like to thank Scott for all of his efforts in the band over the past 5 years and wish him the very best in the next chapter of his life.

Former Wildheart (and long time player with Ginger), ‘Random’ Jon Poole will again be stepping back on-stage as bass player for The Wildhearts.
