Jack Bruce

My Sister flew to the UK on Monday night  to meet the infamous Jack Bruce.  Jack was the bassist for the 60's band Cream and my sis has been fan for ages.  Last night she got the opportunity to meet him face to face - thanks to her befriending his daughter, Natascha on My Space a few years ago.

She was invited to join him in London for his Jack Bruce In Conversation with Neil McCormick.  They also auctioned a 'Fresh Cream' Vinyl signed by Jack Bruce, Eric Clapton & Ginger Baker!  I wonder if she did any bidding for it???

Her text to me this morning:  Met Jack last night up close - in between the hits, the interview and the q&a, he sang some rabbie burns (tears for me).  After it all, I met Jack backstage (tx 2 Mick!) and we got on so well, we all went out in to soho 4 dinner and some great wine. he's a colourful cheeky wee scot -just like me and you! What a night!
How awesome was that?  To follow your dream and drop everything to do it.

I'm sooo excited for you, Janie!

My question now is - who have you always wanted to meet face to face and why?

Pop in tomorrow and I'll tell you my answer to this.

Can anyone really understand how powerful positive thought is. An icon (not that I was ever into Cream) but an icon none the less, and your sis sat with the man, chewed the fat, and had an awesome night. Now thats frikcin cool.
Looking forward to hearing about tomorrow. Oh and yes if you built a jacuzzi, freeloaders and bums would come and spend time in it, if it was outdoors...but what the heck, build it anyway.

Wow,that is amazing.

I would love to meet Madonna - how she re-invents herself. Or no, she is bound to be bitchy = BONO! Yea, Bono. For sure.

That is very exciting for your sis.
My pick would be Elton John. He is so fascinating, talented, kindhearted (seemingly) -and I never knew me a better time than dancin' to the crocodile rock. Plus, maybe I'd get some tips on pretty shoes.

I don't know the answer to that one. Hmm. No one I'd really like to hang out with or meet. Not to say I don't like looking at some of them.

How cool for your sister, though!
