Pentecost...
In Dutch PINKSTEREN..used to mean PINKPOP on Monday. On Monday 19th May 1986, almost 30 years ago, it was the first time of many I saw the Waterboys and like Music From Big Pink changed peoples life this performance changed a lot too. Brilliant. And Dutch Radio broadcasts many times the version they played there of Purple Rain, which I think is beside All Along the Watchtower of Jimi H. the best cover ever.
Anyway, just want to say that was a great day back in 1986 (hot too).

How fortunate to live in the UK and be able to see bands such as the Waterboys live. I would love very much to experience a live performance. Oh "The tyranny of distance"

32 years ago a teenage version of me rocked up at Liverpool Uni to check out a new band after my brother played me the 12inch version of "December". Last November I smiled like a Cheshire cat at the Empire as that band thrilled me just as much as they did back then. Thanks for the wonderful memories Mike, and I look forward to more musical adventures.

Hi Mike,
I have just driven down the m 1 listening to pagen place. Stunning album . I only discovered you because I auditioned for you as a drummer in the 80s . No clue who you were but quickly realised how awesome you and the band were including Carl wallinger. Absolutely thrilled that you have always stuck by your guns and added that awkward attitude to your life and music . Love you man . The world needs people with conviction and certainly have achieved greatness. I have written this because I was thinking of that old scenario of , who would you really like to meet. I still play and more importantly so do my teenage boys , brought up on the clash, waterboys, and gorillas to name but a few.

I am 21 and I've grown up listening to your music, there isn't a song I don't know off by heart, you are beautiful. My absolute favourite band in the entire world. I can't even listen to almost anything else, because it's hard to find your accurate annihilation of vocals, poetry and instrumentals. You are a genius, Mike Scott, and you have inspired me so much I wish I was the cross haired girl at the brilliant mistake and I'm reading Yeats and listening to all your influences. I'm saddened, more so shocked by the fact that people my age don't really know how to appreciate your music. I hope you perform in Britain somewhere in December because I will make it if you do. Your music can make me get through anything. It makes me free.

I've been a devoted fan since I first heard "All The Things She Gave Me" on the local FM station way back in the day.
Twenty years later, my new bride and I had our first dance to "A Man is in Love."

What a wonderful sound! I had the pleasure to be introduced to your music in the 80s. It would be an awesome treat to get the chance to catch the Waterboys anywhere near Detroit! I would bring my entire family. Thanks for the joyful sound.

To Mike Scott and his great band, "Modern Blues" is a masterpiece. The "Beat" references to Dean Moriarty and having a recording of Jack Kerouac reading "On The Road" fit this album to a tee. Mike Scott's lyrics and song structures and the musical ability of the band make "Modern Blues" as good as it can get.

I walked into a music and gift shop in October, 2015 in Galway, Ireland. "November Tale" from Modern Blues was playing over the store's speakers. I literally froze in my tracks and had goosebumps listening to your song for the first time. The store manager got me a copy and I purchased the CD on the spot. Absolutely amazing sound, interesting lyrics - a complete package of the way music should be done. Keep'em coming please!! Thanks!

Thanks to Mike Scott, Steve Wickham and all the other Waterboys for their amazing, inspiring, deep, uplifting, connected, soulful music. It makes my / the world such a better place.

I am currently listening to the new album and at various times have had 'Too Close To Heaven', 'Fishermans Blues', 'Long Way to the Light' and 'A Bang on the Ear' as my favourite songs.

I am also halfway through the book 'Adventures of a Waterboy' and am loving it; currently the description of the recordings in Ireland is fascinating and, again, inspiring.

I was lucky enough to see the band in Hammersmith in 2006 and hope I get to again one day. Thank you for everything.
