Re: Steiger Award 2018

Believe me guys, I am very happy that I was wrong :D
Nevertheless I wish Chris or his management would give us some tiny feedback.
He/they must know that we have been terribly worried after the collapse :(

Re: Steiger Award 2018

This confirms my worst fears. Although Chris has always been kind of reclusive in terms of his private life with many months going by without a sign of life - at least we would have got at least a little update on his health status if it wasn't that bad. But no news since his collapse - and it's alr...

Re: The Tour 2017

The songs from RFL I like the least - and the well known songs since many years :(
My worst expectations have been confirmed.
What a load of ...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Well, the setlists from 2006 on have been nearly identical and I cannot believe any german fan would approve that - or even demand it... maybe if the setlist consisted of hits only. It's clear to me that he has to play a few hits - every artist is expected to do that - and I guess 80% of the audienc...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Another detail I simply don't get: in the EPK he says that this album wasn't actually planned. But he didn't release an album for the last six years - apart from the La Passione remake - and he often boasted about writing songs each day and having the problem that he has too much material and the re...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

I think he had paid his mortgage back by 1988 or so due to his commercial success since the mid-80's - and he sold millions of records at least in the early 90's and still got heavy rotation on many radio stations. "Driving Home" alone gives him a nice income each year. So unless he ruined himself b...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

What I found interesting in the interview was that he was cut after "medically..." (00:14 in the Youtube video). I'm sure he added at least another item on this list. In the interview with the Daily Mail he said something about business things that went utterly wrong ("and some business things went ...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Very sad, indeed. The upcoming tour might be the last one as it will get harder and harder to keep up with the life on the road and the busy tour schedule. Also interesting to read in this article - and sad, as well - that some business things got messed up. I wonder what this could be? Maybe negoti...

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

Well, I've just canceled my pre-order of the deluxe version after listening several times to the new snippet :( What's the point in re-releasing a song from the last album which was poor and still will be poor- no matter how you arrange it? Even worse: the new production sounds even worse than the o...

Re: Wishes for the upcoming tour

I'd love to hear:

- "Windy Town"
- "Steel River"
- "Ace Of Hearts"

All these songs have been played before - a very long time ago...

"It's All Gone" made an unexpected comeback in 2012 - so there's hoping other rare songs can do as well :D

Re: NEW RELEASE 2017 - ROAD SONGS FOR LOVERS!!!

New snippet - generous 20s this time! :lol: Again this annoying accordion like in the last two songs, a chord progression we've heard a million times and drums that sound like he used some samples in a home recording environment :( If that song really was recorded with a band in a proper studio then...

Re: Dave Richards - the most underestimated factor?

I saw the album for sale, already? How is that even possible: http://www.ebay.nl/itm/NEU-CD-Chris-Rea-Road-Songs-for-Lovers-G57254168-/391833351964?roken=HJ1H2Z You can pre-order it already on Amazon etc. so you can buy it on Ebay and the dealer will send it after the release, I guess.

Re: Dave Richards - the most underestimated factor?

Hi all, remember when the fans were encouraged to ask Chris a question via Facebook and a selection of these were supposed to be answered by Chris in a video? This was some time ago - nothing ever happened. The team (whoever this is) is much more active on FB than it has been in former days - but po...
