ASHCON 2004
30:10:04
Pix by Linda Chilcott

Ashcon was at Mansfield again this Year..... and was a truly stunning success.
All sources reckon it was the
Best one ever and the Boys performance was Breathtaking..... 
......and I would totally agree with that statement 110%.

Moreover, it was the start of a 'new era' with Ben Granfelt leaving and Muddy Manninen joining. 
There were guest appearances from ex-member Mark Birch
and Jaz Morris from the Morris Brothers Band (who did a fantastic support for Ash)
and then of course the Introduction of Muddy to the Wishbone Ash Family.

...who have both taken some wonderful pix.
These are a must see...


There is quite a bit more to come on all the topics in this section..... 
and we'll be adding to it over the next 12 months at least.

There are many more pictures to be sieved through and uploaded for all the sections above,
but we are hoping we can get all the sections pretty well sorted by the end of 2004.

If you want to ask any questions at all about Andy's Angels, Royal Guitars, or Guitars in General 
or what is in the Royale 'pipeline', please drop us a mail at.....

kev_royale@yahoo.co.uk
.....and we'll do our best to get back to you as soon as we can.

There is a new dedicated Royale Guitars website coming soon.
We hope it'll be 'up' in the next couple of months.
