  • Bruce says:

    Always one of my favorite singers, from the moment I first heard him (the familiar “Who is that?!” experience). Glad he’s back, and wish him all the best.

  • Ira Spaulding says:

    Best news I’ve heard since the election of a certain idiot in the U.S.A.

  • Daniel F. says:

    Thomas Q. is a great singer, a great teacher, and a great man. It speaks well for the blog-keeper that he has always been a huge supporter and that he has posted this heartening news. Something to be thankful here in America as we approach Thanksgiving

  • William Safford says:

    Next stop Carnegie Hall or somewhere in NYC? Please?

  • Sue says:

    Go Thomas!! You are a champion!! Love your work.
