Went down to the REX Theater Sunday afternoon, beautiful spring day, temperature in the 70’s, to meet and get Adrian Belew to sign this guitar.
After half an hour of looking for a parking spot I finally found one just half a block from the venue.
It was now 2:15PM and almost as soon as I sat down to wait security came out and said to me. Adrian would be getting there right around 3PM, which he did. What was surprising to me was when security approaches you it’s usually to shoo you away and not to let me know any of the musicians plans. But it made the wait a lot easier knowing when he would arrive and I thanked him.
Well, 3:20 and he arrived in a van with 3 other members of his entourage. The 3 were scurrying about for about 10 minutes while Adrian Belew just remained seated in the van before he got out. When he got near me I asked him if he would sign and he was very polite and signed happily for me. I then thanked him and went on my way before he had a chance to ask me if I was going to the concert.
