Minnesota "My husband has a copy of Henry the Human Fly, and would love to have it autographed. Does Mr. Thompson ever meet fans before/after his shows for autographs?"
New York "No offence to your web designer, as their design is fantastic. However, as I amapproaching my middle 50's I have to protest the use of black type on dark brown background in some of the pages, such as Q&A. The eyes are going, man! Loved the Jackson song. Keep up the good work."
Wisconsin I've never seen its equal!
New York It has been a pleasure!
California "Hey, If you are ever in the Occidental, CA area and need sewing or emergency alterations give me a call! "

Ohio "Oh dear Richard Thompson, Thank you for the wonderful song about the real use for Janet Jackson's breasts. I am on the ""titty committee"" (I am a La Leche League Leader, a volunteer who helps women breastfeed their babes). So nice to hear a man who ""gets it!""Thank you!"

Ontario Please come back to Toronto. Have been a fan since Fairport Convention.
Cleveland I first heard R & L T when the single 'I Want To See The Bright Lights Tonight' was released. I have heard most of his work since then and seen him playing live three times.
Leeds the finest live act around!!! best british song writer alive today and guitarist

Kansas myself and many friends hope RT will come back to liberty hall soon! bitchin' web site
Pennsylvania "Richard has always a great Player/Songwriter.....Way back to the FC days. WXPN 88.5 from Philadelphia should be recognized for having the good taste for playing his music on the air !!"
New Delhi "There are not many guitar players from the 60s and 70s who can stay at the ""cutting edge"" playing-wise for as long as Richard Thompson has, and continue to still surprise listeners with their chops."

South Australia "One of the most innovative guitarist/songwriters going around. Can't wait to see him in concert again soon. Would love him to tour Australia with a band, but suspect he won't. Please persuade him otherwise!"
Florida "I had always been a fan of Cajun music my whole life, and in my band we do nothing but folk rock and Cajun. When I heard Richard's guitar playing on a Beausoleil album, I had to check out his method of playing, Excellent work!!!!"
Ontario One of the best guitarists/singers I've heard
"April 10, 2004"

"April 13, 2004"
Toowoomba "RT - another wonderful performance for Brisbane fans, thanks heaps! I'd like to apologise though for the behaviour of some Brisbane fans who seem to regard you as a travelling juke-box - going over the top with the yelled requests/demands. This reached a low point for me when one of them shouted out ""Pentangle!"" as you were introducing a song with the words ""I used to be in a certain band long ago"". Groan! All handled with your usual wit, humour and style however(and the requests you played were wondrous). Cheers!"
NSW "I saw Richard at Byron Bay Blues Festival last weekend, and he was the highlight of the whole festival for me. I cant wait to see him again and hope he will come to Australia again soon. I just love his music."
Canberra "Just home from a Richard concert at Tilley Devines Canberra.I found it healing and I have been ill for a awhile, Thanks"
Maryland I discovered Fairport Convention when I first heard Liege and Lief around 1969; it was love at first sound so to speak. I've been listening to the music of Richard Thompson ever since. It's been a most enjoyable journey.
"April 14, 2004"
Missouri RT is one of the greatest lyricists and musicians I've heard in my lifetime.
NSW "He just keeps geting better...onya Richard & have a great time in Oz."
New York When is the next show in the New York area?
"Redditch, Worcs" Don't know why I didn't check this site out sooner. Nice idea to have exclusive CDs but why so expensive for us Brits? Will they be available on the forthcoming UK tour?
New Jersey "Along with Van Morrison & bob Dylan, Richard has been a constant companion in good times and bad. Love him live in all settings - most recently acoustic @ Collingswood, NJ (I was one of those few who sang along to ""Meet Out on the Ledge"" -sorry, Richard, due to American radio programming most of us only hear 'Tam Lin' or 'Who Knows Where the Time Goes?' by Fairport)Just before that saw him back to back with band: $55 seat at the Kimmel Center in Phila. & the next day $5 standing spot at the WXPN River Festival - both shows spot on, but I liked the latter better because I was closer. Richard, Age quod aegis. Cheers! "
Oost-Brabant "I would like to know when Richard Thompson is touring in Belgium, because I missed the last 2 or 3 conserts in Belgium"
"April 15, 2004"
NSW "It's always exciting to ""discover"" someones music & then continue to enjoy the new & past music."
Canberra Caught the shows at 'Tilley's' in Canberra this week...superb! Come back again.
Glasgow, Scotland How about doing a gig in Glasgow?
Wellington Hopefully your NZ fans will get to see you sometime - we're only three hours from Sydney.
Sydney Just got home from Richard's Sydney (15/4/04) concert - another fabulous musical experience.
California listening on IPod has gotten me obsessed . . . . also great music for walking.
Ontario I need him to come to Toronto again.... the SARS fiasco cost me a concert!!!!
Ohio Huge fan! Wish I had 'discovered' RT long ago. Plus he's a (slightly older) ringer for my husband.
