Andrew Latimer (17 May 1949, Guildford, Surrey) is an English musician and the lone remaining original member of the progressive rock band Camel. He is mainly a guitarist and singer, but also a flautist and keyboardist.
Latimer's guitar playing style is melodic, elegant and emotional. He is considered a magnificent composer, fine occasional lyricist and an emotionally effective singer by newspaper veteran Mark Challinor. He and his band Camel have been overshadowed by the popular progressive rock bands of his period.
In May 2007, Susan Hoover, Andrew's wife, announced through the Camel Productions website and newsletter that Andrew Latimer has suffered from a progressive blood disorder polycythaemia vera since 1992, which has since progressed to myelofibrosis. Latimer has responded well to treatment, but suffers from fatigue. This was part of the reason why Camel ceased extensive touring. In late 2007, Andrew underwent a bone marrow transplant and his doctors are currently monitoring his progress. As of September 2008, he is back home and finally recovering his strength, even considering the possibility of a smaller-scale tour in the future.
