  7. I am a huge fan for many years… I am sorry to see you working for Obama though. I voted for him but I really think he lied to all of us. He did not do what he said he would do and things are really worse than they were before him. I still love you though!

  8. Hi Paul

    i am lying in hospital after a surgery right now - your beautiful songs are helping me very much to recover - i have already infected a nurse with your brilliant music - she was mentioning “this is a wonderful music” while my computer was playing “Summertime is Coming”
    in my opinion you are amongst the 10 coolest persons alive on this planet - keep holding on

    all the best - i will hopefully make it to Lausanne - looking forward
    Andy, Zurich-Switzerland

  9. It’s amazing to me how there are so many what I like to call “hot spots” (a term I use for lack of a better one). It seems that occasionally people come along who light up the lives of others with their art and how they carry themselves. You, Dear Beautiful Man, are one such person. I’m currently writing a novel and when I am stumped, I look to your crazy beautiful songs and lyrics for inspiration. Thank you. Love and rock on, Paul!

  10. I feel terrible that I had no clue you had an album out. I’m sure its perfect! Going out to buy it today. Thank you for making music that I can relate to.


    PS I’m currently 8 months pregnant but there is no way in hell I’m missing your show in LA on 12/5/12!

  11. Hello Paul,

    Didn’t realize fyfest was your first gig solo. My companion and I were late and I made him sprint from the train as I could hear you guys on stage. We got there for the last set and it sounded very well put together, some rich melodies going on.

    Good luck and thanks for making great music.

  12. I had this brilliant dream last night that Mr. Banks and I were hanging out in his 1930s Ranch in Texas with his ‘son’ : a perfect miniature version of him!

    The Banks LP turns and turns on the platter : just fits these days perfectly. Keep blazin that trail geezer. Catch you in C. Europa soon.. Bom!

  13. Me encanta tu musica y la de Interpol! Viendo tu concierto desde el plaza condensa en México D.F.

  14. amo você!
    dois amantes caminham lado a lado no entorno do lago.
    e asas dobram como folhas de árvores
    amo você
    temo a decadencia
    por favor, não me transforme em cinzas
    eu realmente amo você e isso dói
    pq é tão dificil ficar longe?
    por favor, não aprove este comentário!
    eu sonho com vc desde pequena…

  17. Just landed back in Ireland after travelling across to your gig in KOKO, London.. This is the second time I’ve seen you live and you really don’t disappoint! It’s a pleasure to watch you sing live, in fact I think I spotted you out in the crowd before the gig started! Keep up the good work, I’m really looking forward to more of your work.. Highlight of the night had to be Skyscraper live..

  18. Dear Paul,

    I felt the need to write to you after your great performance in Milan and especially after our lovely talk outside the club.
    There was no way I could feel the cold temperature in your presence. I had the strong, heartwarming impression of meeting a soul of rare and wonderful intensity.
    Poetry is what I look for every day of my life: yesterday it was just overwhelming.

    Again, thank you for being there, now more than ever. The thought of you, your touching music and lyrics bring comfort to my heart.

    Wishing you all the best.

  19. I know how this will seem a bit crappy after that wonderful thing Isabella wrote. But I had a brilliant dream as well. And in my dream, Paul was fucking me. Yea. It was pretty good in my dream. Thanks!

  20. Paul, you are not a nice man. You enjoy hurting women. Shame on you.

  21. Ten years ago or so, I opened the door to my 1991 powder blue Dynasty to ferry Carlos and I back to the hotel. We had all just finished playing pool at a dive in Oklahoma where the locals expressed their resentment at you because they didn’t like who they were at the time. I glanced back at you in my white slip, sticky with sweat. The look on your face surprised me. I had never seen it before and haven’t since and I think about it once in awhile.

  26. I love your music, i love your voice, i love the way you sing your songs. Please do come in Balkan, Eastern Europe, anywhere it doesn’t matter which country, i live in Albania, but i would probably be the only person at the concert which i wouldn’t mind at all. I wish you health and more beautiful music.
