Surprised I remember the majority of what I did in the mid 70's to early 90's... We drove to Dallas/Ft Worth to see just about every band ever.. so much fun.. you brought up Thin Lizzy.. They were opening for Queen on the "Day at the Races" tour and we skipped school to go see them.. At Peaches Records in Dallas, we were told that Queen was going to make an in-store appearance, so I immediately bought a Queen "Night at the Opera" LP and tore the plastic off to get it autographed.. It was my favorite Queen LP and was white, so made for an easy autograph..

So, Thin Lizzy shows up, instead of Queen.. The won't let me return th eLP to get Thin Lizzy's Jailbreak, and back then I wasn't made of money like I am now, so I was stuck with the Queen LP.. I managed to talk Scott Gorham and Brian Downey into signing my Queen LP, but despite my pleading, Phil Lynott and Gary Moore (who was filling in on the tour for Brian Robertson, who was injured) would not sign the LP.. So, never cared for either of them after that..

I just figured out how to shoot photos with my computer, so here's a pic of the LP..





Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
