Richard, your music has been a soundtrack through most of my life. One of my top 5 concerts was seeing Mr. Mister -1986 - outside one summer evening at Milwaukee's Summerfest. Now my children listen to Shelter Me, Pages and Mr. Mister on their ipods. Hope to catch the 'all starrs' and hope that you enjoy the tour... can't wait for the new album. Great website! Will be fun to follow your adventures. John Nelson. Janesville, WI

Richard:

I stumbled across your site while performing one of my frequent searches for your music. "Shelter Me" is one of my all-time favourite albums, and I've collected music by Third Matinee, Pages and any song recorded that you have sung or written. Your music truly touches me, the lyrics speak to my soul, and your songs have been with me through some of the most poignant moments of my life. "I Always Cry at Christmas" was a true gift, and to have the new album - I'm over the moon. So glad that you co-wrote with Richard Marx, one of my other favourite artists.

Welcome back - please stay for a while.

Wishing you joy and laughter in your Simple Life.

Richard,
Welcome back, from those of us who have missed you in the public eye. I'm just a few years younger than you. My, how the years do fly by. You truly do have a God given talent. You have a special vocal ability to keep the same song sounding fresh and beautiful each and every time. Going to try to make it to the show in Cincinnati. I've never seen a Beatle, or you, in person before. I should make that part of my "bucket list". Safe travels during the tour!

Hi Richard,

I thought the time would never come, I grew up to the Mr. Mister music, listening to Broken Wings when I was only 11 years old. The video itself I only saw a few times in MTV, was ingrained in my soul. Somehow many years later I became very dependent and infatuated with the songs from Mr. Mister. I must have listed to them so many times im embarrassed to even say. When i found live concert footage from the Ritz and Daytona concerts they truly blew me away. Over the years I realized the supreme technical prowess of your voice, the uplifting lyrics, and really began to appreciate singing.

Anyway, I longed many years for seeing a live performance by you, and now I am lucky to have in my possession 3 tickets to your Bethel Woods performance on June 26th. My wife, 12 year old son and myself will be privileged to finally hear your voice live, as well as the other incredible Starr's :). Looking forward to this, thank you for forming the website!

Good afternoon, Richard.

Let me start by saying that I have been a fan since the mid 90's when I first heard the 3rd Matinee album. Aboslutely amazing compilation that contains among my all time favorite songs (including All the way home and Freedom Road). Shelter me was equally amazing. For me, there is no greater a reminder to my wife than "Best Thing". In any event, you have given me (as I'm certain you've given so many countless others) unforgettable music to take through life. Truly helps in good times and bad. Equally, I drive my wife and boys completely insane by playing your songs over and over... (but believe me they are fans as well). Our youngest, Jack (18 mos), asks me every night in his own way to put him to sleep with "I always cry" -never gets old even to hum to him in the spring & summer months. For all of this, many, many thanks!

I wanted to take the time to write the above but also had a question. I don't really expect an answer (given your schedule) but thought I'd give it a shot anyway. Did you happen to ever produce (for consumer purchase) sheet music for I Awlays Cry and , if so, through which company can I possibly buy a copy?

Thanks so much again Richard and please keep writing.

All the very best,
Rick S., (of Philadelphia)
