Just finished the book. Loved it. Took me ages to read it though
between checking things on Google and listening to songs on U tube !
Im sorry I cursed your publisher several times for not adding an index.
Thanks for ALL the music. Yours is still the definitive version of Arthur McBride.
Keep her lit.
you are still the best rhythm guitarist.
I became an ER doc and only still play for myself. All the best.
Thank you for the music.
Take care of yourself.
Just finished your autobiography and I absolutely loved it. Splendid book.
I just finished Crazy Dreams
It was a great read.I had no idea you collaborated with so many people especially Carole King that was a surprise.
Looking forward to seeing you and Andy in Vicar st later this month.
Hope this finds you well . Just coming to the end of your most absorbing book , well done . I. kind of feel I have shared the journey a little, buying all the releases since Hard Station right up to the current cd as they came out ,and even back filling the trad lp s , attending a fair amount of the gigs solo or with always superb bands in Limerick , Ennis , Dublin and the early festivals . It’s been always more than brilliant , , thanks
Strange coincidence previous book I read was Miles Copeland s bio !
seems to have some US owner.
Hi Paul. Fair play to you, I really enjoyed the book and looking back on the songs and related utube clips.. Wishing you well for the future and thank you for bringing so much colour to the World.
Loved the book, amazingly candid. I "found" you at Hard Station just after arriving in London in the 80's. How could I miss the connection? Added bonus I worked my way through your back catalogue while reading the book. Saw you at the NCH just before we all got locked up.. Keep up the great work and thanks for the music
Love your voice, your melodies and your lyrics. Please, please, come to the U.S., and not just City Wineries/major cities.... we have some beautiful venues - theaters - throughout Florida which are acoustically perfect for your work! Would love to see you at Florida Theater in Jacksonville. Tailor made for you. Ask Bonnie and Jackson, they can attest. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Thinking about you ,my brother Mark, and Boston....
Your book made my Christmas. I recall chatting with you at the bar of the Royal Oak in Ealing Broadway back in the summer of 1969. Not long after I saw you with Dermot O'Brien and Tony McMahon rock the Old Spieling one Sunday night. I think it was an impromptu session but it was brilliant. Maybe I dreamt this. But thanks again for the book and keep on trucking.
Hi Paul - Really enjoyed your autobiography on Kindle for the first. Have listened to everything since Hard Station and enjoyed hearing about the background to albums and songs including the risk taking, the mistakes! and the pain, at times. The changes in direction have been most interesting and if I had a favourite album, it just might be Spirits Colliding though they all bring something to the table. Kind regards.
Paul thank you so very much for your wonderful concert in Perth which I took my son Cristin to. One song which had me in tears you played on the piano I think you said it was a visiting song but I am hard of hearing. I would love to hear it again one day and know the title. Slainte Cree
So glad to have taken a look at this (to see if you have tour dates yet for 2023) and read about your book. Instantly ordered for husband's Christmas present as we have been fans since 1968 when I saw you at our local folk club (in Orpington) with my schoolfriends! Playing in the Johnstons of course and we have followed you ever since.
Brady - thank you for all the music you have given us and Yes..........still in great shape after all these years.
Attended Vicar Street last night 22nd November 2022. Most enjoyable, and great to see yourself enjoying the music so much. Well worth the wait, keep it up!!
Hi there Paul, T'was a magical night with you guys at Perth Concert Hall, I was too shy to say hello afterwards, but really did want to thank you! So here I am. Its rare to find such a warm, friendly atmosphere as we had in the hall that night and I hope the rest of your tour is great too. All the best to you guys, Claire .
Dear Paul, my thanks to you and Andy, Donal and Kevin for a magical concert in Perth on Saturday. It was a great privilege to hear those songs again. I first saw you and Andy in the National in Kilburn, must have been about '77 when the record first came out. It's been a great source of pleasure and inspiration ever since. Best wishes for the rest of the tour. Sincerely, Pete.
Hello Paul , listening to your good self since your Holyrood days, Met Liam a few years ago still playing piano. I worked up the street in Big Joe's early 1960s . Music a gift of life . Regards Jim.
Paul forgot to mention that I was at the gig in the stadium 1983 where you supported Eric Clapton and I was a budding amateur photographer which I still am and took many photos of you with piano and guitar at that gig.
Hi Paul ,
I came across you singing the long good bye on Amazon music app and fell in love with your versions Love your voice yours Patricia
radio one tonight played 'paddys green shamrock shore'. it sounds as good as ever, the great mandolin of andy really sets it up. a question; is the song in copyright? the lyrics? my reading online it
