THE parents of a 25-year-old man are celebrating their son’s decision to abandon his band for a job in a bank.
Nathan Muir’s mother and father opened a bottle of Cava following a phone call in which their dejected son admitted his dreams of a creative life had been crushed forever,
Yvonne Muir said: “It was such fantastic news, especially because we were terrified his demo was going to be on the radio or the band had a great support slot coming up.
“When he told me in a shaking, defeated voice that he had to be realistic and think about his financial future I felt such a wave of relief.”
The Muirs said they were given another boost when they were able to cross out several gigs they were supposed to be attending off the calendar forever.
Brian Muir said: “Let’s get the neighbours round.”
