Timeline: Late 70s
Place: Hotel Kempinski - Kurfurstendamm -Berlin
Richard Astbury (BFBS broadcaster) shared our Berlin Brigade Mess, he had recently moved from Cologne but was without temporarily his music/tapes/albums etc.,
he was due to interview Demis Roussos with a view to building a programme around this. I had all his albums so a deal was made:-
I accompanied Richard and the man arrived with his driver/record producer - no entourage, the best three hour lunchtime meeting of my life, such a sweet, interesting down to earth man you could wish to meet and talk about charisma!
Fast forward three years: Bournemouth, we saw his show and went back to the stage door to catch a glimpse: the double doors flew open, he stood there, looked around at all these clamouring folks, looked across the top of the waiting limo straight at me ( wearing my Demis Roussos gown) pointed and said, Berlin! Never has my flabber been so gasted but a moment to treasure.
