Manitoba a truly unique entertainer
Washington "hello to RT and Nancy from one of the fans who attended the first Cropredy/England/Scotland summer tour back in--was it '84?? as they say, memory is the second thing to go... Cheers"

Georgia "RT you are a God, I want to have your baby!!!"
Milan Bloody fantastic guitarist and superb songwriter.
michigan "Loved RT ever since the FC 60's. Finally saw him live last week at AA Folk Festival. Blown away! Want to buy ""Hots for the Smarts"". Is recorded?"
Durham "Where can I get a copy of ""FIRST LIGHT""?"
UK "Do you know how to play Route 66? I bet you would do a great job of it, live. You're good at taking other people's songs and making them your own. Even songs that I haven't really liked before sound great when you cover them. That aside, you never cease to amaze with your own songwriting skills. In recent years my favourite RT album has always been your last. And there aren't many I can say that about."
Dorset "From early-ish Fairport (London Festival Hall 1968?) I've enjoyed Richard's music. Great songs, thrilling guitar playing. Looking forward to Cropredy 05!"
Maine "first live concert 1972, London last Dec 2004 in Camden Maine. Still FANTASTIC !"
"February 3, 2005"

California "Forget Eric Clapton, RT is God! Well, a brilliant musician anyway."
Maryland Huge fan!
California "Just saw the 1000 Years show at the Mystic in Petaluma. Great!!! I kept hoping that the encores would go on forever, but I have a vivid imagination. How does one narrow down the popular music of one thousand years to just one shows worth! Oops! was awesome! Then again, Richard could perform the phone book and make it shine. Those women he played with are also fantastic. What an amazing project. Glad to be there to enjoy it!"
California Just saw your 100 years show at Bimbo's. I haven't had so much fun in a long time. You were absolutely phenominal in every way. What a true talent. Can't wait for the next show ..
California "ooops! correction... ""1000"" years! my apologies! still basking in the memory of a great evening."
"February 5, 2005"
ohio when is RT coming back to Cleveland?????
Vermont "took my 7 yr old daughter to 1000 yrs, told her it was only 10 yrs, so as not to scare her. of course, she loved it, especially thanks for oops! you really came thru for me!"
Missouri "I am lucky to meet and speak with Richard on two occasions.Once at Starlight Theatre after opening for Bonnie Raitt and then again at The Grand Emporium quite a few years later. Yet the best concert in my Life was in Lawrence KS at Liberty Hall, Thursday September 23rd. Dave Alvin opened. Richard's son was on Guitar.I wonder if you remember that night Richard. Thank you! "
Dorset Since the Fairport days Richard has continually pushed back the envelope of the singer - songwriter. Please let me know when he is next in the UK. We can't wait to hear more.
Yorkshire my whole life means I started in 1968!! I never heard the legendary Tangerine Man!

Illinois "I love your music. Listening is like reading a book, I get lost in your lyrics. Thank you"
California Seven of us just enjoyed the totally amazing and incredible concert in Sacramento. Three in the group had never seen Richard perform. They were blown away! His rapport with the audience is a wonderful thing to experience. Thank you. Come back again!
Hampshire I am very pleased to see RT now has a DVD of his performance and the link to purchase his music. I would appreciate it if you could keep me updated on future developments and any UK tours/ gigs. Thank you

And to this day she has not stopped telling her friends and family about him.And rightly so he is a monster on stage,a truly incredible talented musician,singer and songwrier.If you've only thought about seeing him,you are missing out on a real special talent.I only wish I could see him more often."
Rhode Island "Looking for gigs in the Boston, MA, RI area."
"February 12, 2005"
Surrey "Just received my copy of the Live In Providence DVD, normally I find DVDs can be fall short of expectation, not in this case, surely the best music DVD I own and the sound is fabulous. No gimmicks, no flash, just pure RT and that outstanding tone, well done!"
"February 13, 2005"
Ontario "I believe Richard mentioned somewhere in some recent comments on the site that there was a tour of Canada in the works for this spring. Is this still in the cards? Haven't been able to find any details anywhere. If not I guess I'll just have to give the credit card a hit and get to Cropredy... Tough life, innit."
London "It would be cool if you came to London again. I missed the concert at Hacney empire last year but I'll definetly go if you do another concert here, and I'll invite my high school teacher from Denmark who introduced me to your music a few years ago. It would be an honour to be able to see the best guitar player in the world perform live."

Indiana "Please indulge a (hopefully for you)short story. Two weeks ago I underwent surgery that required an overnight stay at our local hospital. Attempting to lighten the mood the morning of the surgery I put on ""Wall of Death"", from the CD ""Two Letter Words"" (my favorite version by the way). My wife was not amused of course but so be it. The next day, following the operation and a sleepless night in the hospital and all that entails my nurse wheels me to the front door where my long-suffering wife helps me into the car where OUR LOCAL SOUTHERN INDIANA RADIO STATION IS PLAYING RT'S LIVE VERSION OF ""WE'VE GOT TO GET OUT OF THIS PLACE."" Through the pain and to my wife's ""I can't believe this"" I turned the volume of course ...UP! Thank you Richard and please come see us next time around in Bloomington."
New Jersey R. T. is the best!
London Bright Lights was one of my favourite songs - but the recent stuff is just great. The whole family loves whoops I did it again. Just ordered 1000 years for Wife's birthday.
croydon Please keep me informed of tour dates in UK and CD releases. We saw him solo at Hackney last year but need another fix of RT with band!!
North Carolina "ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!I visit Richard's web site often to check additions to his tour schedule and am still patiently awaiting a return to Western North Carolina. I have promised many of my friends who have never seen Richard AN AMAZING SHOW if only he would come. So please, Richard, if you read these comments, know that you have wonderfully spoiled us with your word and song---in fact, opened our hearts with love and our souls with recognition---and your fun loving live self is famously missed. I feel the same way about your live music as I do about a trip to the ocean---gotta hear it to fill up the soul. So thanks for listening and come on by again real soon!!!!!!!!!!!!"
