30.3.71 and 30.3.91 ..

I've never noticed that before. What a coincidence/ quirk of fate. Gerry 's first and last gigs with Rory, on the same date 20 years apart to the day.

I was outside looking in at the Marquee in NYC. One of my lifes greatest regrets not picking up tickets that Saturday afternoon.
It was crazy outside, people everywhere with no tickets but the hunger to see the Stratocaster Master.
