Gene Thomas has to be in the Heritage Texas Singer/Songwriter Hall Of Fame

Posted by R. Dawson on May 8, 2012 at 10:20 PM Comments comments (0)

I think everyone would agree with me on this. Gene should be in The Heritage Texas Singer/Songwriter Hall Of Fame. I've tried emailing them many times and I haven't gotten a single reply. If anyone of the members has a way to help get him in there, please tell us what we all need to do. Gene's not getting any younger and this would just mean the world to him. Nobody deserves this more than Gene! Can we put our collective heads together and make this happen? Let's do this!!

"Time Goes By"

Posted by Barry Kilgore on September 17, 2011 at 3:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Just a note. It fits "Time Goes By" My age was listed as 23 on the members page. Considering that I slow danced in my sock feet to "This Is the Last Song" on the pavilion at Huntsville State Park, Texas in '64, I should be older. I've earned every grey hair and proudly am 63.

Gene attended the 10th annual Mickey Newbury reunion in Houston this past week-end.  It was a heartwarming event in remembrance of a great songwriter and singer.

 

Gene performed along with many others, to acknowledge their respect and admiration for Mickey.  Gene has not performed, by choice, for several years, but felt honored to be a part of this event, to honor his longtime friend, Mickey.

 

For interested fans and friends:

Letter to Gene from danna

Posted by Darlene on June 7, 2010 at 11:04 AM Comments comments (0)

I have spent an hour or so listening to songs by Gene Thomas. Abide with me here while I share some "danna" thoughts and opinions, that you have most probably heard/read before, but I think praise is far too lacking in todays world. While we are here breathing, moving and feeling, admiration and appreciation must be shared. While we are HERE.


While listening to "Sometimes I feel like going home", I took into consideration that the song was not penned by you. You told me ...

Comment by Don Gant then Director Nashville Operation at ABC Records, Inc.

Gene Thomas is probably the most extraordinary person I've met in the music business.  Extraordinary in the sense of his talent for songwriting to be able to reach out and touch the emotions of people from all walks of life with his songs.  His melodies are unique and beautiful, but it's in his lyrics that he shows his true genius.  He writes mainly of love, and he weaves his rhyme with the skill of a master builder.  His songs are powerful but never offensive, tender, but...

Liner notes written for one of Gene's earlier albums (Circa l970's), by Mickey Newbury, one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all times.

"You know, Gene once said to me,  we're different from most people.  We sit around with noise always in our heads.  It kills us---and it gives us life.  Complex simplicity, is the only way to describe Gene Thomas.  Understood only by his closest friends, and then, never completely.  He writes with the insight of an old man, and like the rest of us, at times, closes his mind to the wisdom of his own words.  He's human, intensely idealistic at times, and at ti...

Random thoughts by Gene Thomas (l97l)

Posted by Darlene on April 7, 2010 at 6:43 PM Comments comments (2)

My own particular hunger and perhaps the truest love is simply to pick and sing a song or two for you to let you know that when you're feeling up or down, I feel somewhat the same.

 

After all, it is part of the plan----Birth, youth, earth, growing, loving, even in our worse moments, hating.  It is being wounded, healed, sickness, health, marred, and scarred.  Picking up pieces, losing them, and gathering again.

 

It's my belief that even though we...

Gene Thomas-The Songwriter

Posted by Darlene on March 3, 2010 at 7:21 PM Comments comments (20)

Gene has spent most of his lifetime with a deep passion for songwriting, with true hope of conveying his thoughts to all who might listen.

He weaves the words, like no other, to a point, that the meaning often times seems hidden, lost, or even misconstrued.

Gene is a walking talking mystery to many.  The mystery is solved if you interpret his songs the way in which he intended and hoped ...
