How does Mark value John as a musician? I can’t help but think John would gladly be playing with Mark in his solo band had he been asked at some point. I know John says all is well with their relationship, but I feel there is some bitterness there even though not admitted.

Mark and John have remained very close friends throughout.

Guy, although this appreciation (induction into the RRHF) as fact is too late, I am very delighted.You were the best band ever. CONGRATS!

It's actually not too late as you need to have been in the industry 25 years to qualify. I think.

Dear GF
“Cruel” is right, and saddening. However, we have doubt you quickly set it all aside in favour of the joy of the event – despite the ice pellets we were sending your way from Toronto … Still, I hope the heartfelt warmth of this Forum is, well … warming!
As ever,
Louise

The weather was cruel, but the welcome and the warmth felt at the HoF and by the fans is as warm as this forum.

Hello Guy, Can you give us an indication when the new album of Mark will be in the store.
Is may possible or later. Anyway, you’ve done a great job on tv last Saturday.

Thx Marco

Thank you. I can't say when the album will be out. We haven't even finished mixing it yet.

I’ve been Mark & CO fan for around 15-16 years, since I was about 14 years old. The influence his music had on me is difficult to even explain – it made me who I am today(However cheesy that may sound). I am a musician because of it, and most beautiful moments and people in my life came as a direct product of being a musician. I am thankful for everything it gave me, so I can’t really understand all this RRHAF commotion, bad mouths or whatever…that stuff is irrelevant, guys. Nonetheless, many thanks to Guy, John and Alan for the kind words, that’s enough for me. Only things that makes me a bit nervous is waiting for the new album and studio diary 🙂 🙂 Cheers Guy and hope to see you again soon in Croatia or neighborhood.

Me too

I’d like Mark say something about why he did not want to go to RRHF…a his comment…even in this forum… it would be very welcome…we are human

I agree

Dear Guy!
What would you recommend to use in order to get the best, most natural and wide stereo image of the sound for all the home-recorders out there? Use of digital reverb, delays (how much millisecs?) or other options?
For instance, my own tracks are not bad stereo-sound wise, but everytime I listen to professional albums there is still so much difference. I mean, listen to Tracker, it‘s as if you were in the room with the musicians!
Cheers

30 years of practice. There is no, quick fix for this. It's in the ears

Hello Guy, how are you? … I am anxious and waiting for the new job, yesterday I told my wife and we also talked about what happened in the RRHF and we said that maybe, Mark will be heavy when they the time comes to present the new work to the press and the journalists ask him about his absence, I suppose they are going to harass him with that subject … he will have to get a lot of patience! Thanks for always answering! Greetings from Buenos Aires!

A virtue I’m certain he has.

Now that you are back from Cleveland can i ask for any updates on one off the projects you are working on? Local Hero or new album. Speaking off projects, is Henrik Hansen still filming??

I’m only JUST back. The journey home took 38 hours so no, no news as my head feels like putty.

Thank you, Guy, for your reassuring words. I was feeling a bit guilty, and am glad I probably don’t need to be.
Also, I found it amusing that the dapper Geraldo Rivera walked past not once, but twice! I can’t help but think that he was the inspiration for El Macho. Am I close?

I didn’t notice

Doc, I know you are tired and Jetlag, so I won’t hassle you anymore on RRHOL. But at these events where artists get together, and very rarely, were you “Starstruck” at any point? If so, are you able to say by whom?
And did you get to talk with Bon Jovi?

Only by the spiritual presence of Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Their tribute performances were the spectacular highlights.

What a nightmare, being stranded. I am sure you’ll be home to good old “Blighty” soon, and with a huge smile on your face for your lovely achievment.
Where is that “Gulfstream G4” when you need it !!!!

Haha I know, definitely a diary in this one! Am composing it now.

Enjoyed your speech- it was dignified and heartfelt. Would have been nice if MK could have at least sent a brief video comment or something to make it a bit less awkward for all involved.. simply “I appreciate the recognition, and I’m proud of the work that i accomplished with these guys, but I’m looking ahead and working on new material — this kind of thing just isn’t where my interests lie. Best wishes!” –but of course it’s his right to do as he pleases. He didn’t ask for any of it. I suspect he’s gonna get annoyed b/c with the new release promo he’s sure to get asked about this more than he’d like. He might have been better off to just deal with this now as succinctly as possible and move on to the next chapter. He seems like a great and giving guy in many ways, but one who knows he doesn’t have to suffer fools -and who politely but firmly will remind you of that if need be.

Thanks

Dear Guy: so sorry to hear about your missed flights and Delta’s less-than-helpful response. The weather in NY today is just horrible. I have been receiving flood warning alerts on my phone all morning and the morning commute was miserable. I hope you are well on your way back to LHR and that your next trip back here in NYC, hopefully with MK and the others very soon, will be much more pleasant.

PS: Perhaps this was Richard Branson’s payback for DS declining his contract many years ago, or so as the story goes!

Maybe, we are on the way now.

And besides congratulating The Doc and the rest of the members for being inducted, Happy 30th Wedding Anniversary to you and your family as well. Sorry to hear about the weather in JFK – it is strange that it is like this in April. I am rather surprised that they did not allow you to stay for 2 more days in Cleveland after such a long evening and night. it would have been rough if there were rehearsals + performance + pack your bags and leave for LHR the very next day. You guys must have barely slept.

Thank you. Yes, not much sleep but I need to get back to mix the album

Hi Guy,
I just wanted to thank you and the rest of the guys for doing what you do. All of you pulled off such great, heartfelt speeches and I’m so proud you were eventually recognized and given an award you deserve more than anyone else in the industry. I’ve been a fan of your work for more than half my life and I’m so happy all of your hard work and effort you constantly put in finally payed off. I gotta admit, I was slightly saddened not to see Mark up there onstage but it was so great to see THE bassist and THE keyboard guys being true gentlemen. Wishing you and your family all the best & keep showing people what actual music is all about!

Thank you. Don’t forget, it’s your award, I’m just looking after it for you.
