for all you sad under-achievers
who have ended up
in the puke-encrusted
of UFO obsession.
The good news is... you
are not alone.
The bad news is... that
makes it rather crowded
It was a dark and stormy night.... on March 8th
and at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia a young impressionable
boy named Rob De Luca
attended his first UFO gig. Like many before and since who've
seen Pete Way in action
for the first time, this young impressionable boy was inspired
to become a bassplayer.
He practised hard, grew his hair long, and lovingly preserved
his gig ticket for posterity.
And then, in a quirky twist of fate, exactly twenty-eight years
later on March 8th 2008... he got a phonecall inviting him to
stand in for his idol after Pete was refused a working visa
to tour America.
Which just goes to show that if you want a quiet life you should
stay at home on dark and stormy nights.
When you send
in the photos of your tickets etc, please can you include
some jolly anecdotes such as
'This was the night I got dumped by my fiancee' or 'This was
the night Pete split his pants' - stuff like that.
Make sure you also send in the rare tix-pix... the no-shows,
the meltdowns etc. Let's wallow.
