Cat Stevens-Father and Son

This song was popular when I was going through a period of angst in younger years. Even though the singer is male, I identified with that need to run from the old to the new to anywhere to find myself. Every time I hear that song now it brings back that person I was then, sitting on the edge of my bed in the commune, this song on the LP, feeling all sorts of emotions bubbling through.

I would like to email Cat Stevens. I just want to tell him how his music has enfluenced me and how much I respect him and his decisions. I can't live without his music. My best friend in this world passed in 1989. From the time I was 16 years of age he has been a part of my life. Does anyone know how I can tell him this?

Let me clarify: my best friend and I lived by Cat's music.

I doubt you'll find an email address for Cat Stevens who, as I'm sure you know, stopped singing, changed his name and is likely hard to find. Try a fan site to see if there's a central place for fan mail. Even then, no-one has the time to read the volume of mail celebrities get, but hey, take a shot.
