    John, Let me start by thanking you from the deepest chambers of my heart, your music found me when I was lost, I was once a baron body of misfortune and despair until I discovered the bittersweet melodies and teasing rifts of John K. I found you one evening whilst trawling the internet looking for pictures of men holding guitars superimposed onto pictures of the world thus appearing to be “on top of the world” (I assume that was the intention) and hey presto, there you were. From that moment on I could tell you were a man of substance, I had to know more. I saw your music video for “Hurray for the NRA” my assumption was that this beacon of light that I have just discovered (you) was a gun-toting psychopath, I was perturbed. I listened the song to teach myself that not everything is always the way it seems, the most beautiful creatures can have the darkest souls. I was overjoyed to learn that you, like me, do not have sex with guns, my new angel has wings! Your words really rang true, after the 16th consecutive play, I knew that something had to be done about the gun culture that is steadily slitting the throat of my great nation. This little auburn haired boy from Kansas finally has his calling in life. Since listening to your music my Basset Hound Pip and I have solved 11 gun crimes (inspired by “Hurray for the NRA”), we have delivered 4 new babies into the world (inspired by “She looks like making babies”) and we are now in the process of launching our new porch installation business for elderly care homes (inspired by “sitt’n on the porch think’n it all over”). I hope you’ve identified the trend here JK. I just can’t wait to see what inspiration I draw from “Up to the red lights” when I finally get around to listening to it! Anyway keep up the good work and stay true to the cause, there is a piece of John Kostermans DEPP inside us all! Fuzzy

    All you lily-livered liberal Europeans make me sick. When will you realise that guns give a man self-respect, freedom, and sometimes a raging boner. I own 6 assault rifles, 3 sub-machine guns, 5 semi-automatic pistols, a grenade and a pea shooter. And believe me, we make beautiful music together. I've never been more glad that I live in 'Murica where a man can truly be free. 'You can take my right to bear arms (and get raging boners) as long as you prize it from my cold, dead hands' - Charlton Heston, Former NRA Chairman 1998-2003. Hooray hooray for the NRA. HOORAY FOR THE NRA!

    John, I just played your song about the NRA and wept. My brother Ruprecht died in a spud-gun related accident. Whilst running to the shower naked with it in his hand he fell on the barrel and it fired whilst lodged in his sphincter.....at least that's what he told the doctors. Anyway, if guns were outlawed, this would not have happened!! Its hard to make sense of the world, but your song has put it in perspective for me. An ode to Ruprecht. I would be honoured if you dedicated your next live rendition of it to my brother 'Ruprecht', I know he is in heaven smiling down on us both.

Bio: I have musical background in flamenco and, after that, some years making songs of a more poetical style with a Madrilene singer.
