Just to say THANK YOU for taking care of your "fans"

Hi Relentless7, Ben and Gavin

Just wanted to thank you all for the care you have for your "fans".

From my point of view it just goes with the music and the lyrics and the few small talks Ben and I had over the years during aftershows i managed to sneak into...

I truly think you were not "obliged" to do what you did, but you did it anyway, wich shows that you live what you sing and / or play... I tend to think that it is pretty rare lately!

I have been listening to Ben since 1994, first saw him live with the IC in 1996 in paris (olympia) and i know i always will, whatever you guys sing, play or do i'll always find something that speaks to me in your work!

So THANK YOU VERY MUCH once again, and see you somewhere in Europe for next tour!

Pierre.

PS : Gavin a very special thank to you ;)

"A special gift for someone specially gifted"

Ben,

As promised, here we are to explain the meaning of the presents we gave you after the concert in Porto (17 July 2010).
The cd is from the greatest "portuguese guitar" player ever, who unfortunately is no longer with us. The title of the album is "Uma guitarra com gente dentro", which means a guitar that shows the feelings and emotions of one People without a single word.
Well, this is a bit what we feel when we listen to your guitar solos.
The t-shirt has printed a thought by Fernando Pessoa, one of the greatest portuguese poets. ("Art is to make others feel what we feel, in the release of themselves, offering them our personality for special release.")
Indeed, your music is pure art and you have a special way of entering into people`s hearts, making them feel free to laugh, to cry, to jump, to stay put, to scream out loud, to whispear. None of this would be possilbe if you were not the beautiful person you are.

Sara and Carlos
