    Wow, quite a collection! I want to hear any stories you are willing to tell, but I am *especially* wanting to hear show (and before/after show) details of Frank Zappa, David Bowie, and RICHARD PRYOR LIVE???  Wow, how were those?

    Ok, Richard Pryor. I'll write on that. Definitely before/after to this. But deeper then just the concert. About a time in the life of a white Chicago teen and his diverse friends playing records by this outrageous black comedian on the back stairs on a portable record player. On these recording Richard spoke and joked about things we knew well and about things we didn't know quite so well - yet. Another thing about the records was the audience could be heard laughing even when Richard Pryor wasn't talking.  So you knew there was more to it. Had to see a show.  

    A show on the tour I saw in 1983 was filmed and officially released. It’s called Here and Now.

    These were sober times for Richard Pryor and he talked to Johnny Carson about that year:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuV1tgw-YII

    It may take a while to put together. So many of you write so beautifully, I may ask someone to read my post before I post it.

    I missed this before, that is amazing, I love the imagery of you & your friends and a portable record player and both all the stuff you did know and all the stuff you didn't yet know.  About how old were you guys?  On  Richard Pryor record I'm sure there was plenty to learn...

    Really hope you do write up what it was like to see him live then. 

    I was a kid and saw Eddie Murphy live in LA on the Raw tour, my aunt took me and my cousin.  Part of his routine was about angry Black moms throwing shoes at kids like ninjas, and my cousin & I looked right at my aunt because she'd thrown shoes at my cousin!

    It was at the LA Forum, and while from a comedy point of view it was definitely a historical era, for me that night was most meaningful because at some point in the show Murphy told a joke about Stevie Wonder and then said he was in the audience.  This was one of the 1st times I was like "Oh, Stevie Wonder is here? We are finding him after this show" and I was a KID! And... we found him!  So that show was most memorable for me as the 1st of 2 times I met Stevie Wonder, who is one of my favorite artists from the time I was wee to now. Forever.

    Super cool! I now have an image of your house as somewhere that, like you drop something behind your couch and when you move the couch to get it you find precious rock memorabilia, like a drum head or an actual guitar!  B)

  • Its been tough because  i had lived in a house  for years and had space  for "stuff". I got divorced and had to leave stuff at family or friends  or pack it all in such small  spaces. So i sold  all my posters for well to little and kept the small  gems.  I moved into a house with my partner and youngest  daughter  now im spreading out and finding some cool stuff.

    Awesome stories! 
     Mine is lackluster, in comparison- a long time ago a friend and I went to see Tom Morello as The Nightwatchman in SF. Good show, I remember Ike Reilly was really good. We bought a shirt, and they gave us a little sandisk sticker, and informed us we could line-up and have a meet'n'greet with Tom Morello because we purchased merch. Excited, we were in line, and I wanted to thank him for a playing tip he had shared in a then recent guitar mag.-but when sat down across the table- I couldnt say anything. We had a "sharpie" moment was all. He initialed my tix.stub.   Someone I have really admired- and I couldnt say "...Thanks for telling boys and girls, to lean on the F sharp."  -darn!

    I drew a fucking blank when meeting Anthrax and all I could muster was telling Scott Ian I liked his goatee.

    For those of you who read my story above, you will recall that I was hanging out with Eddie Vedder and others at a bar after The Who concert at MSG. The other night I was up in that neighborhood and walked by the bar- or what used to be the bar. Damn!! For me that place has historic landmark status  :o

    Any story about meeting a musician you respect & who inspires you, after seeing them play a really good show, is wonderful! Thanks for sharing it! And at least you didn't blurt out anything bizarre, as I may or may not have done a few times (more like making what I thought was a funny joke that fell SO flat it wasn't funny!).

    My most mortifying stories of meeting people I admire are so mortifying to me, I'm still too traumatized to speak of them. They are Voldermorts of mortifying stories to me. :lol:

    Lol!  Yet in chaperone mode, makes it a tad easier. 
     I got on this guys case, for a crazy "Attila" show. I told him (Fronz) that if it wasn't for his hairless cat, I'd want to kick his ass for their performance in Fresno. He ended up telling me how that was one of his favorite shows on that tour, and how he had chipped his tooth that night. He then told me all about his dentist, showed me his teeth( beautiful ) -It was funny and weird, and he's Not who my girls needed to be posing w/ yet Nat-she meets alot of these (girl on right)..."Warped Tour" .

    Lived in Manhattan for 15 years before children and the suburbs.  Worked there for close to 25 years.  The great spots were closing even before COVID.  The city is losing so much character every day.  Notice how it goes from local bar to retail space.  Cleaned out the office in April 2020 and have not been back.  Not feeling a strong pull to go back even though it is my favorite city in the world.

    Hung out after a local Audioslave show as we took our time leaving when Tom came out into the foyer looking for someone. I politely asked if he would mind signing my ticket to which he replied “I don’t have a pen! Go get me one!” 

    I laughed and thanked him for the moment.

    The worst I heard is Jimmy page. He used a stamper at a book signing. Imagine waiting for that.
