Oeps, why didn't I know?
I ran into the guy (or he into me, who cares) when I was on my way to a great balcony front seat in the Boston Orpheum Theatre in 2002. I recognized him from the above mentioned Amsterdam Rolling Stones concert with J. Geils Band opening (after George Thorogood !). A really good band at the time.
Peter was just a nervous little man, who asked if I knew where his great friend Keith was ... Jeeh man, if I would know that ... (dressing room off course). He came over as making himself "very" important because "he was Keith's friend". A bit rediculous. A national treasure? Ask Mick: "Americans are funny people, first they drag you down and when you're famous they make you a hero" (can't clearly remember what he said in the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame).
J. Geils Band the "American Rolling Stones" ... Naah. They were great, but so were Guns & Roses, The Doors, The Ramones, Jefferson Airplane, The Greatful Dead, etc.
Just remember ... The Rolling Stones are THE gift from our Universe and nothing will ever come close
