Biography

Guildford, Surrey, England, United Kingdom (17 May 1949 – present)

Andrew Latimer (17 May 1949, Guildford, Surrey, England, United Kingdom) is an English musician and one of the original members of the progressive rock band Camel. He is mainly a guitarist and singer, but also a flautist and keyboardist.

Latimer’s most common guitar of choice is a Gibson Les Paul, but he is also known for playing Fender Stratocasters and other guitars. From the 1990s onward, he also played a Burny Super Grade, an 80s copy of the Gibson Les Paul Model. The amplifiers he uses range from Fender, Vox, and Marshall.

He established a music production named Camel Productions which released Camel’s new albums: Dust And Dreams (1991), Harbour of Tears (1996), Rajaz (1999) and A Nod and a Wink (2002).

In May 2007, Susan Hoover, Latimer’s wife, announced through the Camel Productions website and newsletter that Latimer suffered from a progressive blood disorder polycythaemia vera since 1992, which had later progressed to myelofibrosis. This was part of the reason why Camel ceased extensive touring. In late 2007, he underwent a bone marrow transplant. As of September 2008, he was back home and finally recovering his strength, even considering the possibility of a smaller-scale tour in the future.

The latest news regarding Latimer comes via a blog from David Minasian, who has directed several Camel video productions over the years. Minasian released his album, Random Acts of Beauty, in August 2010.
