I have already chatted online with your Admin on your FB page. If you look, you will see why I was trying to get a message to you before tomorrow as I gave more detailed info there. A very dear friend of ours died unexpectedly last Sunday morning. We were all in complete shock. His name was Tod and he was just 53 years old. His memorial service is being held tomorrow morning here in NC and it will be terribly sad but I wanted to somehow make sure your song Kyrie would be heard or mentioned then. March, 2013 when he, his wife and a couple of other close friends of ours were hanging out at our house, Tod was humming your song Kyrie but couldn't remember the name and it was driving him nuts since he LOVED that song. I did some checking on my phone and figured it out. We then played that song over and over, all singing it out loud in our kitchen. I loved that song as well from the 80's as I was in high school back then. Ever since that night, we can't hear that song without thinking of Tod. I posted your Kyrie video on my FB (I'm a very private person and I only created it because of a son in the Army Nat. Guard so it's just for family and close friends) page also along with some crazy photos from that particular night. His wife shared them on hers. We are very saddened and atleast have that memory among others to remember him fondly. Love your band. Bless you all.In His Love,Rae
Any idea where I can get copies on Cd of the Live Acoustic CD from way back when and Songs from the Sketchbook CD without having to sell the car?!
HUGE fan since the first MR Mister album, living in Ireland. Top five vocalist of all time in my opinion! I am trying to buy a few cds from the shop but having huge issues. emailed the site twice and top spin media once. no replies. Help?!
I was at the concert last night at Samohi. So so much fun.
What is the name of the beautiful song you performed? I believe it was the 2nd song in your set.
I'm am very curious to know who plays the fretless bass on "A Simple Life"...? Is that yourself ?
Thank you for your music! I'm a huge fan! ;-)
When can I see you in person. I am wishing to see you. Take care always & God bless..!
Hi RichardMy name is Louis. Congratulations for this outstanding performance. I loved Mr. Mister since the album Welcome to the real world. One of my favorite bands. Thank you for this 1st. class music.
First of all, thanks for the fantastic Music and Inspiration. You are one of my earliest influences.
With everyone and their brother & sister calling themselves "Producers" these days, although not credited, I would wager that you have been involved in the development of some great music that we never realized.
It would be great to know some of the behind the scenes music work you do in addition to your already well known accomplishments as a songwriter and performer.
Dear Richard,Many years we have been following your music. Your latest album was more than just music for us. We got inspired by it and emotional overwhelmed.
On our new album "Mixed Up!" (Zingga) we took the liberty to record 'Diamonds". During the last stage, the mixing, we sat down with tears in our eyes because of the beauty of your song. Thank you so much for sharing this with us....
Deepest respect and warmest regards from the Netherlands.

Dear Richard... Hi, I'm 47 years old and have always loved the song; "Broken Wing". The song has always been a comfort, to me. The song is amazing, and filled with much emotion. I just watched the video, on Amazon.com and it took me back; to my teenage years. I'm so happy, to have found your website. I can only hope, to see you live and in concert someday. Music soothes my soul, and your music definitely does that. :-) Do you and the original band members still tour together? Wishing you and your family much love, light and peace!!! <3Hugs from PA.your new friend, Kelly :-)
Hi Richard!I really dig your music and your playing and singing! Thanks for great songs!!!!!
Do you do vocal tracks for other composers? Is there any chance to get you singing on my album as a special guest, just for one song?
Hi Richard, My name is Vanessa. I'm 17 and I live in Missouri. I love your band Mr Mister! It's my favorite! My favorite song is Broken Wings, but I love all of your other songs, too. I first heard a bit of broken wings while listening to a playlist with a ton of 80's music on it. I instantly loved it. It's such a beautiful and we'll composed song. The music your band made was so perfect for listening in every day life. It's so upbeat and original. My favorite part though is your voice, it gives me chills! I just love it! I have one of your records, "Welcome to the Real World". My dream is to get your autograph on the front. I also have one of your concert t-shirts from 1986-1987. It was impossible to find one of your t shirts from any concert. They are very rare. Luckily, my favorite vintage clothing store on Etsy found one for me! I was so excited! I love it! I just want to personally thank you and Pat, Steve, and Steve for creating such wonderful music for all of us to enjoy.
Had the privilege of hearing you perform at Cafe Aroma on August 6th. It was my wife Virginia's birthday, and it was a very special evening. A special thanks to Keith McCabe for putting the evening together.
I spoke with you briefly about "Within You Without You" and the origins of the song George Harrison wrote all those years ago. Very spiritual and insightful.
I was inspired to buy your CD "Peculiar Life". I was really moved down to my Soul; it really spoke to me in a way that an album of songs has not done in years. Thank you for giving everyone such an inspired, honest, and beautiful masterpiece. I have shared the iTunes download and your website with my friends and hope they will purchase it and enjoy it as much as I do. I have ordered Pull and look forward to hearing it as well.
I live in the Atlanta Georgia and hope one day you will make it out this way. There is a great venue that is just now being restored called the Variety Playhouse that would be perfect for you. Many great artists have performed there.
In closing, I am grateful for you and your music and may God bless you in your ongoing life journey. (And oh yes, thanks for singing happy birthday to my Sweet Virginia at Cafe Aroma!)
When I was 12 years old I used to lip sing your songs to my mother when we were going through some pretty hard times. Divorce etc, but when I would lip sing broken wings to her our troubles would seem to disappear. I thank you for your music and I hope you have eased pain for others as you eased mine. Joe
Hi Richard, Saw you and Ringo's fabulous band last night in Staten Island. I've been a fan for some 30+ years and I could still listen to you sing all night. How great is it that Ringo has assembled such an incredible group of musicians to bless us with such a wonderful evening of music! Truly, among the best, tightest, and most enjoyable touring acts these days.
Although I have to confess, EVERYONE in the band is terrific, but you happen to be the main attraction for me. I'm giddy with happiness that your amazing voice is still virtually as powerful and secure - and every bit as beautiful - as it was thirty years ago. You are very fortunate - and so are we.
I figure that as great as these songs are, it must get tiresome sometimes singing Kyrie and Broken Wings every show, but I'm sure you also realize how phenomenal it is for us to get to hear them. I never get tired of those, but please do know that I - and all your fans - realize that your music is about so much more than just those two songs. Please remember: your fans may treasure those two, but we value and cherish the rest of your body of work - both with all your bands over the years and your solo work - just as much. (And btw, You are Mine is a real highlight of the show for me, as well. Gorgeous song!)
Any chance at all of a solo tour, or with your own band, somewhere in the New York area any time? Or maybe an acoustic gig in a small club (LOVE those videos online from a few years ago!).
Peace and love from Brooklyn, Marie
Happy birthday to you!Wishing you a wonderful day!
Warn regards from The Netherlands

With Love and Warm Wishes from the UK.
How are you & your family? A very busy Mum of 2, with very little time to listen to any music, just been listening to some of the old Mr Mister songs from the 80s for the last couple of nights...GREAT MUSIC, specially from Mr Mister.... but then the 80s were a great time...although I was only about 12-13 years old in 1985 but because of my older sister, I LOVED the music from that time & still do...! I think that you have a very special voice & you are very talented... I am going to make the time to listen to your more recent work too which I haven't yet...Hope you are having a nice week...! From a Uruguayan Mum living in Northern Ireland...xoxo
Hello Richard :)

Dear Richard! I wish a Happy New Year and Christmas! Love you
Just want to share with you my live-recording of your wonderful song "I Always Cry At Christmas"! Hope you like it! 😃
Happy holidays! 😊
Hey Richard! Happy late birthday! :^) I cannot tell you how much of a fan and how much I LOVE Mr. Mister! I ordered Pull awhile back, and was and still am in AWE! I know you're a super busy guy being a musical genius and all, but is there a chance you and the other guys from Mr.Mister would consider releasing a live album? Like something from the vaults maybe? :^) I still am gonna order all your other releases oNE of these days. :^) Thanks for your time, Mr. Mister Page and all running this site! :^)
Dear Richard!Thank you for your beautiful music. Huge greetings and respect to you from Russia.
