So now I can use this as an opportunity to talk about the time I danced on top of Buddy Guy in his club in Chicago. I was there for a conference, and Buddy's Legends club was in walking distance to my hotel. Went early, met the band, particularly the keyboardist, at the bar ahead of time, had a couple beers with them, and they invited me to sit (and dance, which is mostly what I do at blues clubs) in the VIP box right beside the stage. Now it was just me up there, so they were playing, I was jamming -- all of a sudden, I step backwards and almost fall onto someone behind me.
It is Buddy Guy with 3 women and one other guy. I knew he showed up at the club from time to time, but the guys told me he was not likely to be there that night. I apologized for dancing on him! And I offered to leave his box!
He said, "No, darlin', I love to watch a pretty girl dance. Stay right where you are."
My brush with greatness.
