… playing for drunks in his local bar when he was underage and being hidden when the police arrived.
… Elton John at the Rich Stadium in Buffalo (and being a member of the Fan Club).
… his first performance, singing ‘Ben’ by Michael Jackson.
… the influential low-key stagecraft of Gordon Lightfoot and Leonard Cohen, “people who just stood there”.
… the rigours of long tours.
… being “on Cloud Nine for a year” after seeing the Who.
