    Howard: Great CP show in Minnesota Tuesday night. I'm an ELP fan for 40+ years and had some reservations before the show. But simply blown away and so glad Palmer is still holding the torch high. Also cool to find out you're connected to Neal Morse & Spock's Beard. Enjoyed hearing / seeing your awesome talent!

    Pete finta: Saw you guys in Kent Ohio. Such an amazing group of musicians! On your solo was it Tomita's Arabesque you were playing?

    Paul: Thanks so much for your comment Cristiana, I'm so pleased to hear the concert had such a positive effect on you, thanks for taking the time to tell me. Always remember that music is expression and art - it's not supposed to be perfect. "Perfect" music is boring, and that makes it far from perfect!

    Cristiana: Ciao! You played yesterday in Martirano and I waved hi like a weird when you showed up at the window before going away (I would have loved talking to you guys but I know how these thing work). I won't be telling you how much you have amazed us and how freakin' good you are on the stage (oops, I just did!), what I'd really like you to know is that I have been stuck for a bunch of years now, as a perfectionist musician who never gets to see herself worthy enough of the majesty of MUSIC, and -let's say- i am facing a dark period. Well. You and Mr Palmer awakened something in me after a long time and I think for a musician this is one of the greatest things to say, I mean, that you've impressed someone so much that you make 'em feel like PLAY MUSIC (again, in this case). So, just thank you man, from the depths. :)

    Paul: Thanks Don, it was a fun gig. I really enjoy the variety of venues we play - every one is unique and makes for a different show dynamic.

    Don: Great job in Woodbridge NJ tonight, You give it your all no matter the venue!

    Paul: Thanks very much Alan, glad we didn't disappoint! Carl has SO much energy I don't think he'll ever be over the hill - he's going to outlive us all! :o)

    Paul: Thanks so much Brett, I'm really glad you enjoyed the show, I'm always delighted to gain the approval of a keyboard player! Hope to see you at another show in future. :o)

    Paul: Haha thanks Deidre! Was lovely to meet you at the Coach House, you were at a really good show - definitely a highlight of the tour. Can't wait to play there again! :o)

    Brett Minkin: Hi Paul. I saw you last week in Sacramento, CA, was completely blown away. As a keyboardist, I was surprised, and saddened at first that there were no keyboards.. that is until you started playing, and I spent the rest of the night in slack-jawed awe. I found myself wondering “who the f**k IS this guy?!” I found your website, and read your bio, which was fascinating. I am the adoptive father of an ADHD kid, and understand completely the hyper-focus you referred to. I loved the energy and joy of playing you out while on stage. When I was on stage the other night, I thought of your performance, and reminded myself to try to be more dynamic in my stage presence, like you were. Thank you for an awesome show I won’t soon forget.

    Deidre Christensen: You said hi to me from the balcony at the CoachHouse in SJC, CA. I guessed you might be the guitar player and hella awesome one you are at that! And you flirt with the audience. Such s Scorpio. Simon is playing now and you are taking a break. He’s great but I miss you already. Rock on!

    Alan: I loved your show in Portland last night. ELP is probably my all time favorite band and I was really hesitant to hear their music with just strings. Also I have heard two over the hill musicians and hesitant to spend money on possibly a third. But Carl Palmer was just as great as ever and I was amazed that you and Simon pulled off the music. Great job and thank you for a great show!

    Paul: Thanks so much John, CTTE was a blast wasn't it?! I'm still having withdrawals. Hope to see you onboard next year, or at one of our shows before then.

    John: Hey Paul, saw you for the first time on ctte 2018. Wow you blew me away. I’ll be following you forever

    Paul: Haha thanks Jim, I just had to google "Lang may yer lum reek"! Glad you enjoyed the show, we had a lot of fun too. Always great to play Scotland - such great audiences there. I hope we'll come back to Kinross, and hopefully see you there. :)

    Paul: Thanks very much Harry, that was a fun gig - not least because it was my birthday! Glad you enjoyed the show. Hopefully see you again in the future. :)

    Harry Hellam: Paul, watched the concert last night at Howden and was blown away by he interpretations of classic ELP songs. Already looking forward to seeing you and CP again in the future. Thanks for an amazing evening.

    Jim: Hi Paul. Saw you at Kinross in Scotland recently. Fantastic guitar work. Simon was also excellent. Thanks for the autographs. Who was your backing drummer? You have a fantastic career ahead. Lang may yer lum reek and come back to Scotland soon - Jim

    Paul: Thanks Tim :o)

    Tim Gingras: Hey Paul, not on FACEBOOK much anymore, but I wanted you to know I finally read every word of your BIO...Now, I'm even more impressed...Well done so far Mister B. tim g

    Paul: Yeah, Chet Atkins is great! You're right, I first got turned on to his playing through the album he did with Mark Knopfler - Neck and Neck. Such a great album!

    Paul: Thanks so much Richard, our Canadian shows were such fun. Hope we can play there again soon!

    Richard Frisby: Paul, amazing performance in St.Catharines, Canada. Thank you for inspiring me, listening to ELP for over 43 years brought me back to my childhood of great memories.

    Frank: Saw you in St Catharines Ontario tonight. Detected some Chet Akins influence in your solo material. Read your bio and saw that you played (learned), all of Mark Knoflers stuff. One of his influences was the Great Chet Kins....as was Steve Howe's. Great gig tonight.

    Neil: Saw you with Carl Palmer in Cleveland Sunday. You are so tight with him that you two could splint an atom together. WOW
