Happy Rhodes fan Guestbook




Hello, my name is Vickie, a Happy Rhodes fan from Chicago. Welcome to my fan guestbook. It serves a few of my fan web sites:

happyrhodes.com
happyrhodes.net
happyrhodes.org
wretchawry.com (for downloadable song Samples)
wretchawry.com (for downloadable Rarities)
rhodeshows.com (live shows, unfinished)
rhodesongs.com (links & Streaming)

are the main ones I maintain (among others), and I have the same Guestbook code on all of them. I can't tell from the Guestbook entries which site you entered the Guestbook from, which is why I ask when you leave a message.

Happy is living her life and is very content. She lives on a peaceful farm in upstate New York with her husband, musician Bob Muller. She has a "day job," one that she likes very much (she hand-builds pro-audio equipment for Dangerous Music, and is able to work at home). Though she hasn't made music for many years that will (we all hope) change at some point here. She and Bob have talked about building a home studio which will, we all hope, be used to make more of her beautiful and unique music.

Happy has been performing with Security Project, a Peter Gabriel appreciation band. Shows were performed last fall and this spring, and more shows have been announced for fall 2017.

"Members of King Crimson, Shriekback and Gabriel’s original band bring these genre-less masterpieces into the 21st Century. Seattleites Trey Gunn and Michael Cozzi join esteemed drummer Jerry Marotta and NY keyboardist David Jameson to harness the core of these songs. Added to the pedigree of these players is the voice of Happy Rhodes. Her 4-octave range is the latest edition to this mesmerizing group."

If you're a long-time fan, thank you for supporting Happy. If you've just discovered her, you have a lot of good music ahead of you. Enjoy! Please know that as a Happy Rhodes fan of 27 years, your words of admiration and love of Happy's music thrill me and have been known to move me to tears. Happy Rhodes fans are so rare and it's wonderful to read the thoughts you leave.

I remind Happy to come here and check the Guestbook entries every now and then, so she will see what you've written. I know that she deeply appreciates your thoughts. Your support and interest in/love of her music means a lot to her, as you see from this:


MESSAGE FROM HAPPY!

"I wrote and recorded music for many years, thinking I was only pleasing myself. The fact that so many people have appreciated the music, makes my life incredibly rewarding and full. I'm overwhelmed by the outpouring of well-wishes and cannot express to you all how undeserving I feel. Nevertheless, I'm more grateful than you know. You've all made me feel accepted in this world and believe me, it's a cherished state of being.

Love to you all,

Happy"




A FAN WEBSITE!

I created a website for Happy Rhodes fans, based on the MySpace page, but better. I liked the look of the MySpace page but not the ads or other junk that's there. I couldn't steal the player so I made my own. There are 3 music players on the page, as well as video and info and many many links. It's a work in progress.

http://happyrhodes.org

Note: After years of belonging to someone else, happyrhodes.com is now in my possession. Until Happy and I figure our what to do with it, I put my fan page there, and also at happyrhodes.net. They're all three exactly the same except for the url. If Happy mades more music in the future, an official web site might go there if it's what Happy wants.




ALL OF HAPPY'S ALBUMS, song by song, are on YouTube as Audio-Only tracks. That channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/happyrhodesalbums. You can search for a specific song, or you can go to a playlist for a particular album.

ALL OF HAPPY'S ALBUMS can also be heard free via streaming audio. Go to http://rhodesongs.com/music

(These things are done with Happy's full permission and blessings)



 

Happy hasn't released anything since 2007's "Find Me" (it's her 11th and the first since 1998's Many Worlds Are Born Tonight). It's available on CD Baby (both the CD and as mp3s), and on iTunes.

I do delete entries here not concerned with Happy's music or if I feel the entry isn't appropriate. Spammers may as well not even try. I keep a close eye on this Guestbook.

I'm sorry there's a length limit and that some entries have been cut off. I can't seem to change that. If you write something long, highlight and copy it before you send. If it cuts off, leave another message with the rest of it.

Please, if you have something you need me or Happy to get back to you on, leave your email address or send me a reply email when you receive the canned confirmation note (the one that eats apostrophes, sorry about that).

BTW, if you leave your e-mail address, it can only be seen by me, not by everybody.


Here are a few other links in case you didn't see them where you were. There are more links on the happrhodes.org page.

There's both a Happy Rhodes fan GROUP and a Happy Rhodes fan PAGE on Facebook. (Btw, Happy herself does not do Social Networking)

There's a News account on Twitter. Needless to say, it's pretty quiet.

HAPPY VIDEOS (well, live clips, since she's never made any actual videos)

That link above is out of date. There are lots of great links, so I'm not going to delete it, but really, there's SO much more on YouTube now. Just search for Happy and you'll find either

k8fan's channel

xenussister's channel (there are several full-length concerts there now)

happyrhodesalbums's channel


The Ecto Home Page (this is THE place for lyrics. Note, the original Ecto page no longer exists. This is a mirror at my site.)



Thank you again for discovering, listening to, and supporting Happy!


Vickie

Your legacy is assured amongst those are lucky enough to appreciate your work, and it's enriched my life so thank you! Have a good one, if you happen to read this..in fact have a good one even if you don't. ;-)
