AATA Podcast: Multiple Sclerosis and the Musician

Multiple Sclerosis and the Musician — (Raymond Meade, Dr. Mark Janicki)

May 25, 2022 • 1 hr 1 min

Raymond Meade has been in the UK music industry for over two decades, first as a singer/songwriter for the Ronelles, a solo artist and session musician, and current bassist for Ocean Colour Scene. He also made a BBC documentary about the music of Auschwitz. His life is literally in his hands.

So what happens when those hands start tingling during a concert…and it doesn’t stop? When you suddenly can’t play music? When your doctors tell you that you have Multiple Sclerosis?

Listen to Yasi and Steven’s interview with Raymond as they talk about him facing his own mortality, the strength of friendship and family to survive, and the perils of a music career on the edge. Also, meet Dr. Mark Janicki, an neurologist and MS specialist from Indiana, whose “always leave a patient with a smile” approach and early intervention from across the pond helped Raymond tackle the biggest challenge of his life.
