    If you haven't read his recent book, this gets at many of the highlights:

    Bit of a guitar genius, Richard.

    I read the book (Beeswing) recently and enjoyed it. Love me some RT, he is indeed a proper genius.

    I haven't seen those two blokes for years, they used to present the Old Grey Whistle Test a few lifetimes ago.

    I was fortunate enough to see him several years ago at the Philadelphia Folk Festival.
    He was fabulous! Dressed in black with the black beret.

    I saw him on his "All Request Tour" at City Winery in NYC several years ago. He's amazing on record but even more so in person.

    An international treasure. His songwriting and lyrics are always a reminder that I need to work harder when I write my songs.
