Long John Baldry Update

Long John Baldry Update

Following our report yesterday from various sources, Long John Baldry is recovering well from his treatment in Canada for respiratory problems.

SONIC NEWS learned from various sources yesterday that the blues legend, who was the voice actor for Dr. Robotnik in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, was in a “critical condition”. Some reports had even stated he had died.

Despite the report from SONIC NEWS perhaps being the closest on Baldry’s “stable” condition, the singer was reportedly “peeved” at various British media sources for laying outrageous claims on his health.

Frank Garcia, Long John Baldry’s agent, stated: “He’s doing well. He’s on the mend… There’s been all kinds of rumours and we don’t like it”. Baldry is expected to make a full recovery, much to the delight of his fans and Sonic fans admiring the voicework of “Dr. Robotnik” and SONIC NEWS.

We trust that we hope not to run into such displeasing rumour from outside sources again. Just like we have with this story, SONIC NEWS will endeavour to report as much fact as possible without spilling into rumour. We wish for a speedy recovery for John.
