Wish I had half his talent.

Glad I didn't have his upbringing (if I've interpreted the lyrics correctly).

The lyrics count - as does the guitar

Love RT, I've seen him in concert 3 times. His stuff is way too dark for my wife.

That's pretty much his signature piece. I just assumed that anyone who knows who he is has heard it. It's what put him on my radar years ago.

I always remember him for this song (like the you tube video too).

While in college back in the mid 70's I had a girlfriend that was in a Fairport Convention cover band. I became a fan really quick. Seems all my favorites in are Brits, with a few exceptions.

The man can really mangle a guitar line - in a good way of course.

Well, as with Picasso, it pays to know the rules in order to break them 'well'.

Thanks to geography, I have been privileged to see Thompson many times, sols and with a variety of bands, collaborators.

I don't recall a single performance that was not as energetic as it was enigmatic.

Genius is an oft overused word in regards to musicians.
