Tommy, I love the site the guido tribute is a great idea and I will do my best to give you more of the great music with john playing on from the vast Gunn archives.
It may take a while to digatize as some of the music is as much as twenty years old.
John is gone but not forgotten.

Hi Tommy,

Thanks for the information on the website. As you know, TSO rings in the holiday season for me and my family. We enjoy seeing and visiting with you in Kansas City every year and your generosity made the trip to Las Vegas something Sean and I will never forget. Sean wrote an article for the local newspaper and I will send it to you along with a clipping I wrote previewing your appearance at Memorial Hall. We love you so much!
Thanks for everything!!!

Cool site Tommy! Was glad to catch TSO for the third year in a row in Portland OR. As always I enjoyed your performance, your voice has so much emotion in it, one cannot help but be drawn in to what you are singing about. Thanks for the music!

Love the site Tommy! No Florida TSO dates this year (2004)...what the hell is up with that??? We can't let this happen again especially with so many of the members having family in Florida (or even living here themselves). You have always been so good to us and we sincerely appreciate the time you spend with us in Tampa or Orlando each year, whether it's to do an interview or to go get a bite to eat. Take care and please stay in touch...ya know "we luv ya man"!

Tommy, I don't know where to begin. You truly are great!!! I get that warm fuzzy feeling when I hear you sing. It is like you are wrapping your arms around me and protecting me. I want to thank you for sharing your talent with all of us. I can't wait till next year to see you with TSO again. Once again, Thank you and God bless.

My daughter and I have now enjoyed 2 years of TSO in concert and throughout the year on CD. It's great that you now have a website to share our thanks to you for a wonderful show. I know it a complete family and band effort. Your genuine expression of God's blessings is nice. I realize by reading about most of you that you are probably not huge into loving Jesus and being Christians but I felt during your show that you were all close to Him. He is the Star of the opera.
My brother worked as a drummer with Bob Dylan in the early 60's. He was the drummer of the Byrds. After they broke up, as you say most good bands do, he played with Flying Burrito Brothers, Jerry Jeff Walker, a few others and then FIREFALL in the mid 70's to early 80's. He was a tormented soul at times. Being raised with the Lord and yet his whole self deep into the alcohol and all that went with it. A wonderful friend and brother though. Oh! and great drummer. He is on 2 I think and one having to do with artists. His name was Michael Clarke. He died back in 1993. Very sad. I didn't mean to take up your time. I don't at all feel like a "somebody" nor do I feel I need to be noticed...I just thought that it would be a little fun to say hi and let you know that we appreciated the time and talent that you and the others have.
I don't plan to preach to you...knowing that you have some sort of background in the Lord...big family, Italian, couldn't fail to have something. But I do pray that you build a close walk with the Jesus that loves you and gave His life for you. I won't ever get to know you as a friend, I'm sure, but I want to see you in the band of heaven some day. I did, however, go through the line to get all of your autographs. Oh! I nearly forgot to tell you that we live in Spokane, WA. Hope you enjoyed performing here.
God Bless You Tommy

When I saw 'The Polar Express' it made me think of 'The Snow Came Down' from 'The Cmas Attic'. Also, 'Ornament' is one of my favorite TSO cuts.
I'm just now working my way back into Savatage material, etc. Where else can you be heard aside from TSO?

Hey Tommy! Just wanted to say great job with the site! I love it! I also want to say thank you for coming to Milwaukee. You guys rocked the Bradley Center that night. I really appreciate you taking the time to come out and meet the fans. It really means a lot to us. Thank you for signing my scrapbook and for giving me the sticker. You made me the happiest girl in the world that night! Keep up the great work and good luck!

Just want to thank everyone for stopping by and posting. Also wanted to thank everyone who comes out to see us, whether its once, twice or more, fact is you took time out of your busy schedules to come and hang with TSO, and I want you to know its greatly appreciated. I hope we lived up to your expectations, or at the very least entertained you and took your mind off the daily routine of life, for the 2+ hours you were with us. Maybe put some Christmas Spirit back into some who have lost it over the years. Ray & I have some surprises for you guys, that we'll be posting in the future and, yes some will be like the Butter cup Video. LOL Cant believe some of you actually liked it ..... it was supposed to be for laughs.
I would like to thank you "Ray" for all the time and effort you put into, not only this site, but the original TSO WEST site as well. You are truly a gentleman, and I'm your biggest Fan.

Thanks again to all of you .... especially for listening.

T, I couldn't resist responding to your guestbook post. Tommy LITERALLY is the biggest brightest *STAR* TSO has and if you have a telescope, I can prove it, LOL! Don't ask. Only Tommy and I know what this means but I couldn't help myself. It's an inside joke. Sorry Tommy!

AWESOME WEBSITE. It has as much presence as your voice. I am so excited!!!!! I have Place Called Rage on order and can't wait to get it.

Thanks Ray for doing such a great job. It is one of the best. Sometimes, wishes do come true.

WOW, this has really made my day. it's almost as good as the hug and kiss i got from you at the meet and greet in Sacramento after i gushed all over you like a crazy teen-ager.. However I really was being sincere. I truly LOVE your voice, I love your stage presence and i was really happy you were back in Sac. Bummed however that you didn't do as much as last year.
Plan to buy Place called rage, heard it rocks and will pretty much buy anything you put out that you sing on. I know that this sounds like i am gushing again, but hey, I'm sorry. I do save my teennybopper groupie thing for an elite few, Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney and Elton John.... so i'd say you are in pretty good company! Thanks for the site, i will be checking in often!

Tommy, Love this site! My deepest thanks to you & Ray for doing this, especially after the PCR site disappeared, & then the site
"mysteriously disappeared". After all these years you still bring tears to my eyes when singing "Ornament", & bring the audience to life during "Christmas Day". I'll never change my mind, no one can sing those like you! It'd be nice to make "Find Our Way Home", &/or "The Snow Came Down" a permanent part of the TSO tour. Hope you'll be singing more leads w/TSO, & do another PCR or something similiar. If you ever want to do an "Ethyl Mertz", or "Tommy & Friends" type of thing in IL. or WI., I know I can fill the place w/family & friends. We all love ya!

Tommy, You are a great vocalist!!! The first time I heard you sing TSO's This Christmas Day, I was hooked. Maybe you can tour with the East coast set one year? Keep those pipes ringing Tom.
