Ray Price turned up on the BBC's Joy of Country recently. 86, looking lived in but still all there mentally.

An update on Ray Price...

He's still on the road and singing, but this gig review does give away the fact that he opted not to undergo surgery following his diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. The fact that he is well enough to preform concerts might also mean he isn't receiving dehabilitating treatments such as chemotherapy either, in which case nature could well take it's course quite swiftly.

... On the other hand, he has taken delivery of a new tractor. :unsure:

Alan Price has battled alcoholism in the past, but I don't think he's about to drop dead any time soon.

Ray Price has been in hospital with dehydration, caused by his radiotherapy treatment. I still think he's a good DDP pick for this year.

Ray Price is back in hospital again, after a brief period of convalescence at home. He has kidney stones, a side affect of a side affect of the treatment for his illness.

Price's optimism that he could do 150 gigs this year is starting to look a little misguided.

There's online options: if he's that serious. I bet DL would agree to stream one.

Been spending a pleasant Sunday in the garden reading through Ray Price's wife's Facebook page. Posts updating us on Ray's condition were nearly daily since he was diagnosed but have suddenly stopped in the past ten days. Looking at this picture from a month ago, I can't think why:

The postings on Ray Price's Facebook page are starting to look a little ominous. It could be a real struggle for him to get to 2014.

Yeah, I've been checking in on Ray's FB page every few days, not even his wife is available to post to it now. I think he's gone by the weekend.

Update on Ray Price

"Good morning Face Book Family, just wanted to tell you all that I spoke to Janie this morning and she told me that if Ray continue to improve that the doctors said he will be able to leave ICU. Your prayers and get well cards has really helped him and Janie. We have gotten so many that I hired another person in the office to help open and process them. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the love you all have showed this family. Hope ever one has a good day."
