South Carolina Richard,

There is one song I would love to here you play on stage. That's All, Amen, Close The Door, is one of my all time songs by any artist. I am deeply troubled that after so many concerts, I don't have a clear recollection of hearing this song on stage.(It may have been @ the pier in Ocean City, New Jeresy in '99 (What a show!!!) but I can't be sure). Since I have a feeling you don't mind as much as some other 'artists' having people shout out songs for consideration during your shows. (In fact,I always felt in some ways you encourage it.)I only throw it out there. Don't you think it would be a great song to play with Loudoun? Give it some thought and if you decide to play along than give me a shout out if you would, just to let us know that you care. (I know that you do I just thought add some guilt to the mix). All my best

Pennsylvania Favorite moment Bogarts in Cincinnati. John Wesley Harding backed up Richard then came out into the crowd said "I'm not missing this!" Always looking for to the next show of yours…

California I just wanted to drop a note to say how much I enjoyed reading Michael Simmons' article on you in the LA Weekly. While most writers and critics tend to give your career adequate due, it's always a pleasure to see one that truly understands your contributions, influence and significance to modern music (and even more important, your music itself). The eloquently written article often gushed with praise and admiration for you as an artist. And while this may not translate to long overdue residual checks for you (that'll be the day!), it's great to know it may lead others to discovering your music.

We're looking forward to your upcoming shows in New Brighton and Cropredy. Gratefully your show dates fit convieniently into our vacation itinerary, right between visits to Wales and Scotland! Thanks for continuing to inspire through your tireless touring and nonstop output. The people that connect with your music couldn't be more complimentary. Cheers!

Ohio "I was a die hard Tull fan due to ""gutter rhymes"" lyrics until I was turned on to your music. I thought, ""How does this guy get into my head?!"" It's spooky but GREAT!!!!! You rock it! Teddy is great too. A true chip off the block. Long life to you. Bless your heart. Thanx for sharing your talent with us. There are many song writers, but few poets. Hope you're back in Columbus soon. Meanwhile, I'll catch you on WCBE."

Bolton I'm seeing Richard in New Brighton on Thurs 13th August - would he be king enough to sign one of my guitars for me - it's a Breedlove so it's not a piece of crap (to quote Neil Young!). It's the guitar I write most of my songs on and to have Richard sign it would be a great honour. Will this be possible?

Anglesey, North Wales Seen RT a lot in the last 30 odd years! But I had to drop a note to say how the New Brighton gig a couple of weeks ago was fantastic! Rt was stunning. Great arrangement of Brights Lights, and the way he sang the 'chains you refuse'... How come he just gets better and better?
clayhall, essex Richard Thompson's music is so brillent: I would so like to be able to communicate with him for some musical advise…
