ROSE Crashes Into Tamworth
That dynamic bomb shell, Texas Rose will perform four
special gigs at The Longyard Goonoo Goonoo Room for the Tamworth
Country Music Festival 2005. Last year venues were packed before
performances and many [including the Topp Twins] say Texas was
"the most entertaining and dynamic singer they had seen during
Tamworth Festivals". "She may not be the prettiest, most polished
chick in town but wow will she rock and caress you with her
fabulous voice and unique on stage presence". The great group do
it all from country rock, ballads, Beatles, Janis Joplin and much
more including some classic originals.
Texas is a heavyweight on stage and serves it up to partner "Snow"
on bass with some great comedy slapstick humour that the crowds
love. She had a major health hiccup last year but is back, bigger
and bolder than ever [if thats possible] !!!
Last year Texas packed the Goonoo Goonoo Room at The Longyard with
1300 rages. "The biggest, most interactive crowd the pub has ever
seen " -- so say the staff.

After a pretty scary start, Louie is much better
From Anna Rose
AFTER lots of pretty scary moments, Texas Rose is
finally on the mend.
I spoke to Snow Royle, Louie's husband, on Monday (March
29) and he said she had come through surgery and had all of her
tubes and drains removed.
"She's sitting up now, eating, and things are looking pretty
good," Snow said.
"She's even got the staff singing to her. You should see the two
big windows where she is. They're just covered with faxes, cards
and messages from people - it's great."
He said she would be discharged out of the neurological intensive
care ward on Thursday (no fooling!) and would go into acute care
for another week or so, then they could go home.
"The last thing she remembered was painting the bathroom and the
next thing she woke up in Royal North Shore Hospital after brain
surgery," Snow said.
"She gets a bit confused at times because she doesn't know a lot
of stuff that went on in between those two events.
"Louie had an aneurism on the brain, and when the surgeons opened
her up, they discovered lots of scar tissue on other little
arteries in the brain leading them to believe she wasn't epileptic
as it was at first suspected.
"It may been a series of small aneurisms causing the problem."
Texas Rose was rushed to hospital
SENSATIONAL Narrandera-based country entertainer Texas Rose
was rushed to hospital on Wednesday night and is now in intensive
care at Royal North Shore, Sydney.
She was admitted to Wagga Wagga Hospital on Wednesday evening,
then flown to Sydney in a critical condition.
As there is nowhere in the ICU to accommodate flowers, a hospital
spokesman has suggested cards, photographs, faxes or letters would
be much more appropriate.
The spokesman went on to say Louie was in the hands of one of the
finest neurosurgeons in Australia and the very best team of nurses
and support staff possible.
Your love, prayers and kind thoughts would mean the world to this
fabulous performer and to her husband, Snow, so please feel free
to write away.
Faxed greetings can be sent to Louise Hoare (Texas Rose) on 9926
6480. Other mail should be addressed to Louise Hoare (Texas Rose),
Ward 6C, Royal North Shore Hospital, St Leonards NSW 2065.
