Re: News....

Does anyone know know where Chris is living now ? Any news ? Hi there, I was in Cookham back in April and was talking to a gal in a pub. She says Chris and his wife sold their big house once the girls moved out but they are 'still in the area' though 'Chris is always hush hush about where he lives'...

Re: HELP - SEARCHING FOR CHRIS REA'S REPRESENTATIVES

If you go to the trade publication called Hit Traders you can get John Knowles (Chris's agent) contact info. You must get a subscription but sounds like that could be a production expense for you.

Good luck!

Re: Some Youtube Facts About Chris Rea

Hi Lily,
VERY Interesting! Thanks for the info! It amazes me how much of Europe he covers with his fan base. Artists in the USA tend to think that if you don't make it in the USA you are small time or dead in the water but obviously this is not true as Chris proves!!!

Thanks again
Jenn

Re: Fool if you think it's over - The definitive greatest hits

Does anyone know if this cd is published by Magnet or Chris's company (Navybeck ltd)? The greatest hits cds to date seem to have been from his former record companies who it appears hold the publishing rights and can issue as many greatest hits cds as they want. If this is the 1st on Chris's label t...

Re: Ain't Going Down This Way

Hi Alan, I agree with you about the sound on the headphones. FANTASTIC! My favorite part of Stoney Road and Blue Guitars is listening to all the "stuff" in the back ground on these albums. On both albums you can hear quite clearly all the various instruments and different types of mics when you have...

Re: List Of TV Appearances

Most definitely I would love to see the entire interview when it is reaired (the Sky Arts website says they reair shows frequently). If anyone hears of this happening please let us fans know if you would. Any glimmer of Chris right now would be good. Thanks

Re: Let's Throw a Party and Hire Chris as the entertainment!

Howdy! Oh but we can certainly dream though :? :? :? :? Wouldn't it be a fun event. I could bake a cake in the shape of a hofner guitar. And maybe someone could make a ferrari one as well. But I suppose I will have to wait till 209 or whenever his next tour is. Seems it is about every 2 years (or is...

Re: "Before I Go" song

Thanks everyone. I realize also it is easy to read into postings meanings that aren't there. No offense to anyone. I love coming to this site and checking in with other Rea fans. Glad to have found all of you.

Re: Who plays guitar?

I know this not exactly on topic here but not sure where else to ask this....does anyone know who the amazing sax player is that accompanies Chris on the RoadRunner video? I have spent hours trying to find out to no avail. That guy is awesome and it looks like Chris enjoyed playing with him as well....

Re: "Before I Go" song

And I thought this forum was a safe place to chat and indulge in our love of Chris without having to worry about being chastised. Some of the comments, or should I say the tone of the comments sure does not make me feel free to voice an opinion or just shoot the breeze. Just my 2 cents...Guess I bet...

Re: Let's Throw a Party and Hire Chris as the entertainment!

I sent an email to the site and I asked my old boss who hires bands for corportate events to check it out as well He says he contacted the guy and it is just as real as the classactsbookings.com company that he currently uses. He might even use this guy's company for the next Silicon Valley Software...

Re: Let's Throw a Party and Hire Chris as the entertainment!

Hi Tina, I don't know how possible it is but I'd sure love to find out! I'd certainly chip in a few thousand even if I have to go get a job at McDonalds to raise the money. It seems like there would be a great opportunity for this type of thing - fans directly hire their artist and it is broadcast a...

I say we throw a international Chris Rea fan party (Bart is your house available???) and hire Chris to play! http://delafont.com/music_acts/chris-rea.htm If we all chip in a bit who knows - we could have our own private concert. Wonder what Chris charges for an appearance? Wonder if I could afford a...
