So it was Saturday night after the concert, when Gary and the band came to say hello to the Palers (aren’t we the luckiest fans in the world?).
So here I am with my DVD in hand to have it signed: well that’s a good excuse to get closer to the Maestro and speak to him, isn’t it ?
So here I go: I managed not to interrupt the conversation Gary is already having … and my patience is rewarded by Gary remembering my name (youpi youpi ya!) …
"No, no, I’m not living in Crete anymore, I’m in Paris … by the way, what about a Procol concert in Paris?".
And the answer: "NOT impossible".
I momentarily freeze and then, recovering, hand him the DVD jacket and ask him to put in writing that he promises to go to Paris …
Gary looks hardly surprised and – behold! – takes a pen and writes We will be in Paris in 2003! Promise! N.B.T. (Nothing but The Truth)…
What do you say of that ?
Myself, I feel a bit speechless… That would be the grandest thing to have Procol in Paris and a Palers’ Party in Paris as well. I vote for that!
Thanks, Malène ... good work!
