Camel ~ Fans Images

This picture was taken following the recording of the "Camel Special" radio feature, at the ARfm studios in Tamworth, UK, on 25th November 2006.

Shane "Camel" Carlson did all the presenting with the help of the professionals Paul and Ralph. I was just there to make up the numbers and record a bit of video.

It was a very memorable day - We did have a few glasses of lemonade afterwards

Last week I saw a photo from a nice Guy ( Kevin walker) with Andrew. Now the
link does not work, bet you'll find it interesting. An old Andy Latimer...

I think a simple case of mistaken identity.

I'm Jean-Pierre Delbart, an old fan of CAMEL. I'm 46. I live in Belgium and I learn english at evening school. Obviously, I' ve chosen "CAMEL". So I look on different websites for some ideas and I found yours.

I saw CAMEL six times.1982 SERAING B

Dear Andy,
A few days ago I was having lunch with my sons Andrew & Rudy and my wife, we were talking about my brother and sisters, when suddenly my son Rudy (6 years old) asked me:
“Daddy, Andy Latimer is also my uncle?” I stayed thinking for an instant, and I answered:
“Yes of course, Andy is also your uncle”
We continued having lunch, and I wonder why he does asked me that, and I found the answer easily…
“...Andy is so inside into my heart and so present everyday in my life as anyone of my brother and sisters...”
I truly thank you for giving happiness to my family not only with your wonderful music also with your valuable friendship.

God bless you forever…


Warm regards,

Inspired by RAJAZ. I spent some time last year in the Morrocan Sahara. Cycling through this land, living on the rhythm of the minaret, enjoying the rich culture, made the music even more inspiring to me. I did a camel trek for 4 days, and spent some time with a nomad family. My desert guide on the picture is Asou Boramden from Mauretania. He is a farmer's son. His dad owns 20 camels, and other cattle. The family lives in the desert border area of Morroco/Mauretania/Algeria. After couscous diner Asou played on his drums, and told me a lot about his childhood ("a nod and a wink"?). He travelled a lot with the big camel caravans to Timbouktou, and told me about the musicians and poets. The dialogue between us during the days, made us friends.

I missed the farewell concert in Holland. But the music accompanies the traveller in his heart.

Kind regards, JOHAN GERRITSE, Delft, Holland.

David Pagden from Canada,

Apparently Steve is not a Camel fan but enjoyed the concert a lot.

Yes, that time has come when Rajaz reaches the half century, but who could wish for a better 50th birthday cake. It took me a while before I plucked up the courage to cut into it. After a week all that was left was Andy's head, sad I know but could you eat Andy's head ?

By the way that's my wife Janet. That night she was really proud of Rajaz.

As you can see - there wasn't so much traffic around in the 1960's !
