PostSubject: Got to meet Lee Rocker   Fri Feb 08, 2008 11:34 pm

Hey everybody
just thought I'd check out the new forums and post my brush with greatness. Lee played played live in the afternoon on our local listener-supported radio station, WYEP. It was open and free to the public so I snuck 'out of work' and headed down. They played 4-5 songs (including Stray Cat Strut) and I got to meet the band and bought a couple of CDs and had them sign them. Got picks from his 2 guitar players to add to my collection-they'll go right next to Brian's (I really like to get the used ones, but these didn't look to beat up)
It was really cool to meet another one of the Cats. They have such a special place in my life. I told Lee I can still remember where I was when I first heard 'Strut' on the radio, I was hooked at that moment.
I'm trying my best to get my 2 year old son into them. HAHA I play the BSO Live in Japan DVD for him occasionaly. But he loves to dance to 'Hey Santa' off the BSO Christmas CD. Yes it's Feb and were still dancing to it!!

too hip, gotta go!!!!

<<<<<I also wanted to share my avatar I created a couple years ago 'Brian Setzer, King of Cats'

Me Too. I saw Lee play twice last week. First night was Columbus, second night in Cincinnati. We talked to him and the band. I bought a t shirt and had had him autograph it and a set list. His Dad's name is Stan too he tells me.

Of course I, being a big fan, already knew that Wink

did you know both his parents are classical musicians? his father has played clarinet for the New York Philharmonic for 59 years I believe.

Well I knew his dad was in the New York Philharmonic. In fact, after he told me his dad was named Stan I said "That's right, Stanley Drucker of the New York Philharmonic. I read about that somewhere."

His road crew guy said "that's what you call a true fan, that or he's a stalker" lol!

Note to self: Don't let on that you know so much about their personal lives.

I once even spooked Brian out that way.

HEY GANG! Gotta admit that I wanna meet Lee as he's the only cat that I don't have autographed on my guitar! Just like Brian, I think that Lee has put out some EXCELLENT music! Each of the Cats has great talent, it's just a little hard to get them out here in Australia, but when they do we often fly anywhere from 1 to 4 hours to see them! Keep Rockin' Pete.

Lee Rocker came up to Alaska last summer and played two great shows. What a treat - almost no one comes up to Alaska. Except Tommy's absolute favorite, Marty "Mr. Tight Pants/Big Hair" Stuart just played a few weeks ago, as well. Very Happy

Lee's a real gentleman; I met him about 2 years ago and I was impressed by his kindness. He signed me a picture, a picture disc and accepted tphotos. He took the time for a conversation and I'm sure I could talk with him all night long. He didn't "play " the star, but sure he's a rockstar.
His euro tour will stop here in France next month and I can't stand waiting. bounce bounce bounce

I've recently (last 12 months) had the pleasure of meeting Lee (in Peterborough) and Jim (In Norwich) both were very approachable: Lee even broke away from a conversation to sign my CD as I had to rush for a train. top chaps all of them
