South Carolina "Richard Thopson is the best guitarist and has the best voice in the history of Rock and Roll. Not even close in my book! He is also one of the best songwriters, ever. I went to see him in Durham with my fiance in 2003. She had been his biggest fan for many years and had seen him many times. I ran into him waiting for th elevator at the hotel, and he was extremely personable and played right along with my astonishment at running into him at the hotel! We saw him again in Asheville in 2004. He was really gracious with his time after the show talking with the fans. I went to Newport and Greenville to see him in 2005. It just doesn't get any better than Richard Thompson!"
Missouri "Richard is a rare gem as a musician, song writer, and singer. He's not bad looking either, lol."
Massachusetts Hard to believe it's been almost 20 years since I heard the first French Frith Kaiser Thompson album. I haven't looked back since!

New Jersey "Just saw you 6/3/06 at Appel farm in New Jersey. I had never even heard of you before. Just want to say that you captured me with ""Crawl Back"".

I promise to explore your music further."

"June 9, 2006"
Ohio "Love your songs and guitar playing. You put out a lot of music with one guitar in your solo performances. Where is a good source (if any) for other guitarists like myself to see how you play some of the songs? Do you use open tunings? In any case, love what you do."
Ohio "Thanks for wonderful June 8 performance at Southgate House, Newport/Cincinnati. ""Crazy Man Michael"" was such a special treat!"

Ireland does richard remember playing the great lisdoonvarna festival in 1983? It was my first ever gig and apparently i watched richard play while sitting on my dad's shoulders! thank you for the music
Tennessee "Outstanding show in Newport, KY, on June 8th. I love the new songs, but I was particularly struck by ""Dad's Gonna Kill Me"". Please, please, please make a copy of this great new tune available as an MP3 download!"
"June 13, 2006"
Texas I continue to be amazed! Richard is a musical treasure.
Illinois "The Detroit show was great. Thanks for doing Valerie and ""I want to see the bright lights."" We missed the first 20 minutes, so hopefully that was the rap portion of the show. Also, thanks for all the Rumor and Sigh, that's the album that got us hooked on your music. Lastly, we believe that, while the berets are showing up on more and more fans and may be a viable signature for fans, we suggest a signature similar to that of other semi-cultic musical types, i.e., like deadhead, physhhead, or parrothead: I am dead serious, I think this would be a great marketing gimmic. Instead of "dead" or "physh" or "parrot," it would be the short/nick version of RT's first name, if you catch my drift. We have already used it to great effect. RT rules."
England Please could you e-mail me Richard's agent's contact address. Many thanks.
