Missing Wes

Did I miss an announcement?

I haven't seen anything from Wes Phillips in ages.  I always enjoyed reading his reviews and read his blog regularly.

Where's Wes?

Best regards,

Re: Missing Wes

Unfortunately, Wes has been having severe health issues for some time now and has not been able to contribute to the magazine.

Bummer, for sure.

Having Wes out on the DL is a total drag.

Wes, if you are out there, give "Feed" by Mira Grant a try and see if it holds up to any of the Joe Pitt books.

("World War Z" is also pretty terrific zombie fiction, too.)

You are greatly missed, Wes.

 

Best wished from our house.

so sorry to hear about wes' severe health issues.  he is one of the  humane, done to earth, authentic good guys.  i, too, have been missing his written presence in sterophile.  i do hope he realizes that he has a 'world' of fans who miss him, miss his writing and wish him the best. i keep my fingers and toes crossed on his behalf.

Hey Dr. Spivey -- Sloooow down there. I don't think Antonio meant any harm in his post or any disrespect to Wes.

Antonio: please keep your post limited to your designated thread.

Huh?

Gee whiz, Ariel,

What Antonio's intentions were, seem to be indicated by his actions. Reviving a dormant thread about Wes to promote his own enterprise is, to me, the epitome of disrespect. I suppose I could take the view that the man is blissfully unaware, in which case I'd have given him a shot anyway.

I do appreciate your efforts to moderate the forum, and I suppose I may have contacted you and let you handle it. I'm just not a real feelings oriented person, once certain lines are crossed. In hindsight, I guess "fuck off and die" was a bit much, but I'm cool with the rest of it. If that sounds like half an apology, it's because it is. cool

The last update was on Audio

The last update was on Audio Asylum by JA and Wes himself - several months ago.

In a reply last year, JA said Wes was in "poor health". Then Wes had a fall (with complications) earlier this year. So it seems like a multi-faceted problem......

Get Well Soon, Wes!

Being about a year behind in my S'phile reading, I had no idea Wes was ill until I happened on this thread.  I have always enjoyed his work.  Hopefully, he will have a speedy and complete recovery, and be back at work doing what he obviously loves.

The last review

I remember reading from Wes was the YG Acoustics Anat Reference speakers, and it was a dandy review to read. Take care Wes and if you need anything you know alot of us guys would step forwards.

I see Wes is still listed in this months issue as an SCE. Can anyone tell us if he will return and if his health issues have improved, please.
