      Hi Linda

      Alfie has been living in the States for some time now, about a year I think (Utah, to be specific). We don’t know why Alfie and Brilliant have gone their separate ways as neither has spoken about it xx

        thanks so much for your answer. I wonder if now he’ll begin a really serious US tour/career. He already has my vote….and my heart
        Best wishes, Alfie
