Neil brought the Sun with him.
Saturday, August 31, 2013
One of my earliest memories is from when I was about 5 years old, its of watching a music video for a song called "I got you" by the band Split Enz.
I was lucky enough to see Split Enz play a reunion about 11 years later, and tomorrow night I get to see one of the key members Neil Finn play a solo gig In a small venue.
I got his signature once at a Radiohead concert of all places. It was at the Hollywood bowl and as my Wife and I were leaving at end we saw him and ran up to say hello. The funny thing is when you meet someone so influential in your life its really hard to explain that to them without coming off like a loon.
I won't be rushing up to talk to him tomorrow night, but if I had the chance to talk to him again I would simply say thank you.
