James Morrison Keeps Alcoholic Father Going

Subscribe To:

British singer JAMES MORRISON's meteoric rise up the British charts is keeping his alcoholic father going, as he battles serious health problems. Despite his non-stop schedule, the UNDISCOVERED songwriter, who was born JAMES MORRISON CATCHPOLE, always finds time to telephone his dad PAUL for a chat, and boosts the former handyman's ailing spirits with his stories of success. Catchpole - who lives in Rugby, England - says of his 21-year-old son, "Things really aren't good for me health-wise at the moment. I'm in a bad way. "He rings me every couple of days to check I'm OK. I'm so proud of him and I hope to see him soon."

I really take exception re the aweful, nasty and largely untrue comments made about James's Dad. Im a scouse git and a successful business man living in Malvern now and Ive known Paul for over 30 yrs after spending 20 yrs living in Rugby where I got to know Paul so well and fully aware of his life. Hes a very intelligent, warm, lovely man and lives in a very nice council apartment in Rugby. Hes had his drink problems and quite aware of them but Paul is a real character locally and James loves him so much. I took Paul on a trip to Liverpool just last Friday 6th June 2008 as he has never visited before. We were at the 'Strawberry Fields' famous gates when his mobile rang and was talking to James for 20 mins. James couldnt wait to tell his dad that he had the night before met Stevie Wonder !! I really loathe negative/incorrect comment about a man who is labelled alchoholic when in fact so much is just not true. I can reveal so much more about Paul as so many living in Rugby. I really think you ought to focus a little on Paul's qualities a little.....Regards Kevin
