Wait, you met Siouxsie Sioux? I haven't caught that story yet. Saw her and the Banshees at Lollapalooza. She was captivating. One of those people that I'd definitely be a stammering, quivering mess if I tried to hold a conversation with.

 
Not much of a story/I don't mention it much because I was a stammering quivering mess. She was very intimidating. Backstage passes at the Berkeley Greek Theater (w/Julian Cope and Andy Summers but I didn't remember Andy at all (!) )

I got backstage and had access to the dressing rooms area but a stagehand said it was tense in there (I believed it) and so I staked out a spot where I could see the stage and just waited. She came by with her entourage and I said in my brain "Wow it's so nice to meet you, etc" but what came out was {stone silence}. She saw my All Access and kind of cocked her head like "lousy time for an interview but that's why we're both here" and I said out loud, Welcome to Berkeley, and she said "mm." and that was it BUT IT COUNTS!

Watched some of the show from my backstage perch but it sounded awful (must've been the Andy Summers portion because I saw Julian Cope from the seats) so I went out and took a seat. As I was leaving after the show, someone spotted my pass and asked if she could have it and I gave it to her. She gave me a look like she expected some "bartering," then after about .5 seconds of eye contact, RAN down the steps toward the stage... My friend Doug laughed and said "you suck at being a roadie."

====

I should add that my encounter with Robert Smith played out almost exactly the same way. {stone silence}

EXACTLY!

I was thinking yesterday that it was funny to me to see a lot of stuff represented there that was semi-obscure at the time. I bet I maybe knew 2 other people in the '80s who knew of Klaus Nomi.
 
Yeah it's almost as if he read an article on Pitchfork about Top New Wave Bands then got to work. I probably only learned who Nomi was after he died of AIDS. Wasn't exactly a "New Wave" artist in the usual sense.

Fun exercise tho.

I'm a little surprised at those left out. Guess my nostalgia is eclectic. 

Also thinking that a lot of my 80's nostalgia probably happened in the early 90s...

I didn't question the importance, I'm just glad I was focused on the stuff that I can get paid for.   Also surprised at how many of those are "I know that guy" but I can't come up with the name.

I wish the new site allowed us to color text because I was going to color code bands I've seen/met. Not as many as I thought there'd be.

Yeah, you figured he'd use a drawing from the "Take On Me" video as the starting point for drawing that guy.

That absolutely looks like Patty Donahue, but the artist says it's Nena.   Yup, Marc Almond.  Nick Heyward and Morten Harket next to him.

It's interesting; he certainly is marketing the hell out of an era which occurred before he was probably born.  Fun stuff; good on him.  The other mystery guests are bugging me, so I wouldn't mind seeing an answer key.

Welsh! They did one of their later albums in 2 languages. I'll bet that's on YouTube; I should go look for it.

Very much a derivative band... first the Clash, then morphed to U2 style. Excellent show, nice guys.
 
Oh, that's right, Wales.  I thought the girl above Elvis Costello may be the singer from The Waitresses (and I guess Marc Almond from Soft Cell next to her). I'm not sure who the next two guys to the right are.
