What a wonderful read! I haven't had the pleasure, for geographic reasons, to see them so many times, but I can completely relate to so many of the feelings and sentiments expressed.

There truly is no other band that is so great, for so long, on so many levels.

You have won countless awards and achieved massive record sales but in assessing your biggest achievement I am reminded of the famous Bill Shankly epitaph; “he made the people happy”.

It is fabulous to have a new CD occasionally but just now when the reviews are off the scale and momentum is with the touring I hope you will stay on road and milk this a bit longer.

It has been a wonderful 35 years, here’s to many more and looking forward to 2015 and a wonderful spring!

The quality of this series of gigs has been unsurpassed. A literate and intelligent singer In Duncan and a creative keyboard player in Tony has made them an edgier band.

Oh Linda,

What a truly wonderful read!

I can't tell you what it means to read such a fabulous outpouring of joy and devotion. Believe me, we are just as devoted to you (all).
After all we've been through and still endure, you've reminded me how much I love it and why we still do it. You definitely brought a tear to my eye and I promise you I will read it to every band member who hasn't already.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Robin.
RBC xx
