Erasure star Andy Bell is HIV-Positive



LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts) - Erasure frontman Andy Bell has announced that he has the HIV virus. "I found out I was HIV-positive in June 1998 when I had a bout of pneumonia in Mallorca. Since then I have been taking combination therapy and I am feeling fine, in fact I have never felt better," he said in the statement.
"Being HIV-positive does not mean that you have AIDS. My life expectancy should be the same as anyone else's, so there is no need to panic," he said.

Bell formed Erasure with band member Vincent Clarke in 1985. Top singles including "A Little Respect", "Sometimes" and "Ship of Fools" helped push five of their albums into Britain's No 1 spot.
Last sumemr (2004) Andy Bell collaborated with the In_Vox in the recording of "Will I ever?"

Andy Bell as a member of Erasure has enjoyed fifteen top 10 singles and 5 number 1 albums! Erasure will release their new album 'Nightbird' in January next year.
