A very nice thing Thomas! I really appreciate it, but i was dumb enough to miss all post from 2011-2012. I only understand a bit of German language but i will do my best to vote correctly. :D I know that he did Phillipino Baby in 1977.02.23 - Copenhagen & 15.06.96 – New York – 2nd Show & 30.09.00 – Memphis.

Love you Thomas for doing this. I made my vote but it wasn´t easy, the webbrowsers kept spinning around, but finally my vote was down.

Live at The Star Club "poorly mixed"??? It probably has the greatest mix of any live album!

What's in Your Fridge: Tamara Taggart

......
Life-changing concert

I worked in radio and concert promoting for years, I’ve seen hundreds and hundreds of concerts, but there’s only one show where someone asked for my hand in marriage. It was 1996 and I was working for Paul Mercs Concerts. We were doing a series of shows at the PNE.

On August 26 we had a double bill with Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard; the show was sold-out and people were bursting with curiosity over these two legends taking the stage. Jerry Lee was on first but he was late. Very late. He was holed up in his hotel room and refused to come out. Eventually, his limo rolled into the Coliseum but he wouldn’t go on-stage until I got him a gun. Seriously. I explained I couldn’t get him a gun, so he asked for Ativan.

Once we got him on-stage, he wouldn’t get off—he just wouldn’t stop playing. I asked his road manager, who was his daughter’s best friend and drinking Johnny Walker Red out of the bottle in her white cowboy boots, to get him off-stage. She refused, saying she was too scared. I yelled at her, “The house lights are on, his band has left the stage, and Little Richard is freaking out. Go up there and get him off!” She tried and he poked his fingers into her eyes. Meanwhile, I’m at side stage with Little Richard who is beside himself that Jerry Lee is cutting into his spotlight.

Jerry Lee eventually walked off after seven failed attempts to flip his piano bench and have it land on its legs. With "Good Golly, Miss Molly” now belting out from the stage, I was in Jerry Lee’s dressing room prepping him for a meet-and-greet with contest winners. The Johnny Walker was flowing at a rapid pace, and before I knew it Jerry Lee was down on one knee asking me to marry him. “Ummmm, you’re already married and aren’t I a little old for you?”

Bruce Allen and my boss, Paul Mercs, were laughing their heads off, but neither came to my rescue—the whole night was totally surreal. This musical legend, who years ago had married his own 13-year-old cousin, asks me for a gun, then drugs, then screws up the whole show by going an hour over. And now he wants to marry me? Too high-maintenance for me.
