Believe it or not, i still have a cassette of you, David and myself playing and singing in the farm house. Looking fwd to catching up with you at mark's place when you come down in December.
So pleased to hear your singing has just got better and better.
Chow, for now.

What a great afternoon the 12/11 was at the Noosa Library. Some of those wonderful faces I had not seen for.... well, a long long time.
After the launch I went with old friends and had a drink at Bistro C, more nostalga....and then after that I went home and yes - read the book cover to cover...I just could not put it down, so many parts were so close to my heart...thank you my friend for taking the time to document these memories.
As for the DVD, well I just play it and play it... I don't think I will ever not enjoy it.
I know I speak for SO MANY OF US when I say.....THANK YOU!

Saw you at BAY OF ISLANDS Jazz & Blues Festival for first time, I'm won over completely. Love the CD. Come back to NZ soon
August 28, 2009
no photos, no footage, no CDs, no words in a review can translate your presence on stage. to hear and see you live is an orgasm for the soul. your voice is like a shower of diamonds of sound. i really love your original work. about the other songs, i say this to the world : when one`s interpretation of songs from other fabulous artists are better than the originals, there`s only one thing to say : he`s number one !

Outstanding performance of the festival for me. Your solo performance and stage presence is second to none, with a truly great performance on your spot with the River Rockers.
That number alone is worth the album when you record it with them.Please keep me informed when the new albums are released.
P.S. E-mail me for information on the photos.
