The first fan club meeting was in London on Saturday 24 March.
Rita had arranged to meet everyone outside Tower Records, Piccadilly
at 11.45 am. How would we recognize each other? Simple. Ritas
son had made a small sign to hold up with a photo of Glenn on it.
Gradually one by one people turned up and we introduced each other.
By 12.15 there were twelve of us, and we set off to the pub The Glass
Blower for lunch.
The rather confused bar staff just had to ask eventually what we
were doing, as a large birthday banner appeared all glittery wishing
Glenn a happy birthday, but obviously no Glenn. I did eventually
explain to them what it was all about. After a good natter and look
at the photos I took of my last trip to New York, we ate lunch
and most of us left for the matinee performance of Notre Dame at
the Dominion Theatre. After the show we went to the stage door,
and those who had bought from me JCS souvenir brochures I had spare
from NY, asked Fred Johanson to sign them. He couldn't work out how
we all had the wrong brochure, a small explanation soon put him
to rights. After a very entertaining day we all parted company,
and are looking forward to the next one, which hopefully will be
in the summer with better weather and Glenn there too!
There was also a mini get together in New York on the same day
to celebrate Glenn's birthday.
