After telling Spanish fans on the various Project tours how much he would like to live in Spain, Ian has carried out his threat and has bought a villa south of Valencia!

"Leila and I drove 2000km around Spain before finally choosing this house. During the trip we heard a programme on Radio Nacional Espana featuring the history of the Project and playing many of the songs. I think that was an omen that we were in the right place at the right time. We are looking forward to moving there in March of 2003 and although we will still have our house in Britain, we are hoping that the move to Spain will be permanent."
