Oregon Following Richard since I was a lad in Dundee, Scotland. As a boy I liked Fairport convention and really enjoyed their music. I hate to say it, but I didn't think much of Richard Thompson's guitar playing at the time, it sounded to me like he needed to practice more... time passed, I moved to the Netherlands and my wife bought us tickets to see Richard at the Gigant in Apeldoorn, this would have been late 1980s. I was blown away by him there - he was fantastic (he had obviously been practicing more :)), for one man on his own to command the crowd and play and sing his heart out the way he did... wow, he was phenominal. I bought all his CDs and listened to them like there was no other person I wanted to hear. As a scotsman I loved what he did on strict tempo - I've been in parties where the sentiment in "dont sit on my Jimmy Shands" would be well understood. I now live in Portland in Oregon and saw Richard and the band this year when he visited and played in the Aladdin Theatre - they were incredibly tight and recorded there. It was a pleasure to be there! Richard - the practice paid off!

New York Dallas, London, Cropredy,Edinburg, Heusden,NY,SF and I'm not even a stalker!
Dorset "First saw RT at Cropredy in '86. Was there really a little guy swinging from the stage rigging throughout, or did I dream it - weird"

Canberra ACT Simply love your music Richard thank you.
South Carolina I'm a big fan.... "Bee's Wing" definetely in my top 25 folk ballad songs. Like many great artists, his music gets better the longer you listen to it.
New York Just figured-out the music to Devonside. I always thought that's one of the coolest intros to a verse I've ever heard. Modulating down into the verse key is perfect to the text. RT rules.
California I attended Richard and Loudon Wainwright III's concert in London last week. I thought Richard would be amused by an article I wrote (I'm a journalist) for the Sacramento Bee about an accident I had in London just before his show. Here's a link to my story:

New Jersey Richard Thompson is the complete package - blow you away musician, gifted songwriter, artistic arranger, exploding energy on stage performer and connects with his audience with intelligence and humor - nothing is missing here!!!

Tennessee Looking forward to your music in Maine and New Hampshire in August! Do you have plans for a Tennessee concert in the works? Thanks for all your incredible music and works!
North Carolina I'd like to know what was your inspiration for How Will I Ever Be Simple Again? Such a beautiful melancholy song, which sums up how I feel much of the time. "Teach me to see through your innocent eyes, love" is beautiful.
Heerlen Thanks for the great concert tonight at Deurne. I've loved every minute of it. Well, not the last minute, but all the rest was great! I hope you'll return soon (with enough Cd's to sell then)
