"Hello, Luv!"

Further ponderings on the Shine a Light press conference, close encounters with the Boys and ... what did I say to Keith when he was leaving the theatre???

I didn't say much about the Stones themselves yesterday. They were in great form. Charlie didn't say anything that I can remember, and Ronnie said very little but they looked good. The Glimmer Twins and Mr Scorsese were definitely front and center. But they looked well, relaxed, happy, engaged, except Charlie who looked dapper and a bit dour at the conference. I was really pleased to see him out of the glare, playful and smiling.

A few other missed tidbits...

Someone mentioned that they used to be asked if they could still see themselves performing at age 60, now can they still see themselves performing at age 70? There was a long pause and Keith started to laugh... "that's only 5 years away!" Sounds like a "yes" to me...

Someone mentioned that Albert Maysles was at the Beacon and asked whether he was involved. I didn't get a full note of his answer but he spoke of a reference of continuity, and mentioned some of the earlier Stones films, at which point Keith interrupted with (sorry BV, it is a direct quote) "Cocks*cker Blues!" The crowd was delighted.

The preview screening was at an uptown IMAX theatre and didn't appear to have been publicized. Either that or the press were setting up at the Ziegfeld, as there were no press outside when we arrived, or inside while we were there. The upstairs lobby / concession area was nearly empty except for a few Paramount people trying to get ready for the Stones and Mr Scorsese. It was hard to believe that they would be there.

So after they started moving into the theatre I walked beside Keith and said Hello. Big smile, hug around the shoulder and handshake. "Hello, Luv!" He was pulled a few feet forward by one of the others and then we were all waiting in the hall / tunnel for the introductions to start. It was a lousy place to ask anything - the security people could have tossed me. I waited until after the introductions when they were leaving. Queenie asked me what I said to Keith. Hmmm ... this is a bit of a story, didn't want to say anything until I had full security clearance on it. And now I do...

Goes back to last summer in London. Little joke between me and Rockman. Thought it would be fun to get Rockman t-shirts made up, try to get one to Keith, maybe get him to wear it under a shirt at the O2. Immortalized forever in concerts photos. Blow some wind up the R'man's kilt. Didn't have the nerve but told R'Man about the idea and he laughed - said I should have one made up that says "Who the F*ck is Rockman" and give that to him.

Ah... don't encourage me, R'Man!

As soon as I learned I'd won the trip, I reminded him of the joke. "Go ahead" he sez...

So... there I am standing in the tunnel of the theatre, t-shirt in hand, waiting for Keith to come out. He's right in front of me, against the wall, and I say "Keith, you may have heard of a certain "Rockman" in Australia. Thought this would give you a laugh..." He takes it and leaves. Our Paramount guy says that later as they were leaving the area, the woman with Keith still had it in her hand. So someday soon, coming to an arena, B-Stage or back alley near you... Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present...




I believe my work here is done! grinning smiley

He was a bit surprised, think it likely took a minute to process. Was a bit frantic in there. But he was lovely of course!

Well... that was a bit before my time on IORR but ... cool! I can't photoshop and didn't have time to round up Adi's talents, was pretty last minute, but it's the best that Kinko's and I could pull off in an hour. Hope y'all appreciate the rustic charm... a

Stargroves, what a brilliant idea for the t-shirt, and STG, same for you!!
So glad Keith saw and held the WhoTFI Rockman shirt, whatever happens.

..................

Actually I said the *same thing* when RMan introduced himself to me
in person. (Hehe).

I'm thinking mickxchix could definitely do the printing and distribution!
