During the recording sesssions of the first album, Rudi Edgar fell ill due to a brain hemorrhage which he lost his speech and part of his sensory feelings. Miracoulously he recovered and credited that the healing came from God and said “I’d given my life to Jesus in 1980 and now in 1988 I could speak of his healing”.
