Mel Barrett: Crime of the Century
What was it like leaving the studio once Crime of the Century was complete? I feel like the tapes should have been pulled and the studio burned. There was simply never going to be a recording like that again!

Peter H: The book
i would definitely buy your book! The excerpt is great.
Hope all is well with you. Met you and the BWYB version of the group as a teenager in St. John's, Newfoundland in 1985. You were all gents and treated my friends and I with respect and kindness. John and you were especially willing to talk to us. We actually got the nerve to ask you if we could come in for sound check and you said Yes.....but in the end, I think it was your tour manager who said no! So sad! I will never forget that! Great show by the way...went all three nights :).
Anyway, good luck with getting the book out. In the meantime I look forward to more excerpts!

Mike: Supertramp in Sweden 1974
Mike from Sweden.
I'm amusician,drummer, and I talked with you for about 10? years ago about the drumming of a coomon influence:B.J. Wilson.
Now i would like to ask you about one thing. In 1974 i was invited together with 4 other famous musician by a producer to a rehearsel with a band from UK. We arrived and there was no one there exept for me,the producer(from Vertigo) and my musician collegues and this UK band. When the rehearsel started we were all choked by the amazing sound from the "PA"(at that time ! When the rehearsel was finished I got invited by Roger H. to your dresing room but we did'nt have the time. Later in the evening we were back for the concert and it was "SOLD OUT" on the door but we got in from the security people. The band were supposed to let there new album out in september and I was especially thrilled because someone told me the producer of the album had som connection to The Beatles(Ken Scott).
Well, it was you and the band !! After this i worked with you and the boys when you were in Sweden -76 and -79 and it was really good.
Now my question:I'm writing about this meeting with different internationell acts in Sweden and Scandinavia during the 60s but:Can you please try to find out wich date you were in Stockholm, Sweden in 1974?? I would like to have the date.
Thanks and keep on drumming
Peace & Love

Mil: Greetings from Luxemburg - Europe
I was so sad hearing about Rick's health problems and of course no Supertramp around here. By reading that Jessie helps in the Excalibur project I was wondering if there are some solo projects and ... I found your cd's.
Well tomorrow they will be in my car ;-) I'm so thankful of all you guys did. Born in 64 I think Breakfast in America will always be one of my top 10. Gotta go - 3 Cd's to listen.

I can't wait to buy your book. Please notify me or thru your web site when it is available.
I'm biased, because Supertramp was and is my favorite group, but I think you were ( and still are ) one of the best drummers in the 70's and 80's ( heydays of Supertramp ).
On the song "Crime of the Century", I hear you at your best.
