I remember when you guys came out to New Jersey for Christmas in 1981. At that time I had been in Jersey for nearly 2 years. I had auditioned, to replace the bass player, for a band called Phantoms Opera. I wasn’t in the band yet, but by January, I would be. Between Christmas and New Years they were playing a show at LaAmour The Rock Capital of Brooklyn, and I told you I wanted you to see the band I was hoping to get into. It was the 80’s, lots of spandex and big hair, plus, the drinking age was 18, so the club was packed with 2500 kids. We ended up sitting at a table right in the middle of the throng. Kids kept coming up asking why you and Dad were there, and you kept proudly telling them, He’s going to soon be in that band.
The kids thought it was amazing that someones parents would venture into that type on environment. Most kids were embarrassed to hang out with their parents, but I never was. In fact, just the opposite, I was proud to say, This is my Mom.
