          I’ll definitely check out your music.
          Well, I saw Elton John in the winter of 1974 at Madison Square Garden during his Goodbye Yellow Brick Road tour and thought it was good but bizarre. John Lennon was a surprise extra near the end of the night and that was surprising. I was supposed to see Meatloaf at Brooklyn College in 1976 but the idiot fell off a stage and broke his leg right before the concert. I still have the tickets and if I ever catch him he’s in trouble. Billy Joel I followed early on and thought he was good. A neighbor of mine lived near him on Long Island and had less than complimentary things to say about the personality of Christie Brinkley. Too bad about the Liberace thing.

      Ha! Yes, that made me laugh, too. They were very sweet, little old ladies; I think they intended it as a compliment. It was not because of any sartorial decision on my part, I think I just played the hymns with some panache.

        Liberace was pretty famous in his day. By the time I was watching tv the only two mentions of him was an imitation of his trademark “I wish my brother George were here” on a Bugs Bunny cartoon and a guest starring villain role on the campy 1960s Batman tv series. Only much later did I know his other proclivities.
