    That is great. What a nice keepsake to have. Love the penmanship and the note itself.

    You and Richie looked out for each other, huh?

    Saw him perform at Walter Payton's Restaurant in Aurora Illinois. It was an old
    Railroad Turnabout Building where Payton walked around and talked and signed for everybody all the time. If I was a Bears fan it would have been a huge deal.
    I once asked Payton to come over to our table and wish my friend a happy birthday. He came over and said some Jet fan (sweatshirt) sent him over.

    Richie was playing outside, I think you had to pay because I didn't go outside, although the windows were open. I remember he sang a Version of Pink Floyd's "On The Turning Away" - accapella.

    I'm not old enough to have lived through Woodstock. My first real exposure to Richie was the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert. He pretty much stole the show.

    Been an admirer ever since.

    RIP Richie.
