La Passione

A little bit of news, in German, can someone translate it properly? Using babel fish for a very rough translation, it appears that Chris has finally managed to buy the rights for the film from Warners and he is going to make a new version to be released in 2011 on September 10th which was the date o...

Re: Anything new ?

Hi Mr Blues,
Still waiting to hear what news Bart has but it doesnt look like anything much is going to happen this year :( Chris is busy racing his cars, perhaps the music comes second during the summer!
Regards,
Kev.

Re: Mark Knopfler gets lucky.....

I agree with he comments about the album, it is very mellow and not his best but I decided to go and see him on the tour anyway :-) It's nearly ten years since we saw him live so I was interested to see what it was like. We went to the concert in Brighton last night at the same venue where we see Ch...

Re: Silverstone Classic - Sir Stirling Moss and Chris Rea

Thanks Vivienne, After reading about this is occurred to me how much Chris and Stirling Moss have in common. Both are very lucky to be be alive (Moss had a bad crash that ended his career and recently fell 30 feet down a lift shaft), they both are very talented but ultimately weren't as successful a...

Re: Chris Rea song or album with special memories

Come on people, don´t be so boring ! If someone is trying to start conversation over here you just keep the silence, that´s not the point with the forum. Or are you telling that you got no memories including songs or albums of Chris Rea? Hi Mr Blues, I'm sure we've all got plenty of memories of par...

Re: Tour Reports 2010

Hi, I had a very enjoyable evening last night. The concert went as expected with Chris in fine form, still struggling with the quick change between slide and pick, I noticed at least twice the pick went flying across the stage as he missed it. As ever I enjoyed Stainsby Girls, and i thought Still S...

Re: Fav Lyrics...

I love these words from the song "You must follow" from La Passione. It is so descriptive and you can just close your eyes and imagine the scene. To me Chris is a poet who is so brilliant he can put his words to music. :D I recall the fleeting glimpse of light That smiled across a sky of darkest gr...

Re: Tour Reports 2010

Mr Blues If I was a new user to a forum and was answered with an unnecessary remark like yours, I would think "what an unfriendly forum" and I wouldn't bother coming back. Yes, the subject of no merchandise has been mentioned but I cannot see why you felt the need to make a negative post pointing th...

Mr Blues,
Vivienne is new here so probably wasn't aware about the lack of merchandise so that remark was unnecessary.
