Living with Crohn’s is blessing, not a curse, for Black Foxxes’ Mark Holley
BLACK FOXXES’ frontman Mark Holley describes living with Crohn’s disease as a ‘blessing as opposed to a curse’.
And while the condition certainly takes its toll on his health, the British rocker says he wouldn’t take a ‘cure’ if it was offered to him.
‘Those days when you feel really healthy… my God, it makes those days so much better,’ the 29-year-old told GP.
‘If you said to me now, “I could take you back and you could not have this disease, would you do it?” I probably wouldn’t, I’d probably live with it. It’s made me cherish being positive and life a lot more.’
Praising his bandmates, bassist Tristan Jane, 27, and drummer Ant Thornton, 30, Mark labelled the pair his ‘giant babysitters’.
The band — whose critically acclaimed album Reiði is out now — will play Download festival at Donnington Park from June 8 to 10 and Boardmasters festival, in Cornwall, which runs from August 8 to 12.
