My name is Lily and I'm from New Jersey, U.S.A. I have been a fan of Chris Rea for some time now and cannot comprehend how he never made it big here in the states. But being born in the USSR gave me the opportunity to explore all types of music and I am so thankful that I stumbled upon Chris Rea because he's absolutely the greatest musician, singer and performer of our time. I'm off to the UK soon to see him live with my little sister and am truly looking forward to the show. Chris Rea is a musical genius and no one else compares to his godly musical abilities. The greatest of the greatest and in my eyes, the best there ever was, is and will be. I'm dreaming of the day that I can personally get Chris Rea's autograph, which I would cherish for the rest of my life. He's one of the very few musicians, who moves my soul with every record he produces. He's genuine and divinely talented. I wish Chris great health in the years to come and heaps of happiness, success and harmony in his personal and professional lives. I've been desperately searching for the bonus song "There's only you" featured on the UK and Japanese releases of "King of the Beach", but my efforts are all in vain. Can any of you recommend where I can get my hands on it? As I mentioned earlier, I will be traveling through the UK and if you know of any stores where I can buy an album with that song includued, I would be forever grateful to you. I'm really looking forward to making new friends on this forum. Anyone who is a fan of Chris Rea's music is a friend to me and I welcome you all to keep in touch with me. Happy Spring!
P.S. Who's going to the show in Nottingham? London? Who has been at any show in 2012 so far? I'd love to hear your thoughts on the Santo Spirito Blues tour.
