Would be fun but weird to run into someone like that in the real world. The Alarm's Twist is (was) working in the San Francisco public defender's office...

I think the only person I've actually had a conversation with on there is Mark Mothersbaugh, though I briefly spoke to the members of Romeo Void at a bar next door to the club they were about to play in, and I danced with (near?) Belinda Carlisle in a club in NYC once, just before "Our Lips Are Sealed" was a hit.  I've seen shows by Bowie, Lydon, Morrissey, Blondie,  DEVO, Mick Jones (Clash and BAD) Paul Weller, Midnight Oil, B-52s, Costello, Pretenders, Romeo Void, and Bow Wow Wow.

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}

I don't know that I would know Nick Heyward in a photo. Did the artist go find obscure before-they-were-famous A-Ha pictures? Because what?
 

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.

Which leaves U2 out of it entirely? Odd.
 

Like I said, the guy who illustrated it looks to be in his mid-twenties to me. He's wrapped up in a nostalgia that he didn't experience. It's fine, but I think a little skewed. I can post the answer key if anyone wants.
 

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...
