My Del Shannon story is somewhat bittersweet. I had gone to Disneyland on a lark with some friends (we always could get in for free as we had connections) and on this one particular night that we went, they had some sort of 'Oldies but Goodies' concert at Videoplolis which was a huge dance "club" for dancing. On the bill itself, the headliner was Del Shannon. Anyway, there were a few singers on the bill and it was getting late. The other guys wanted to leave and I said I'm not going anywhere until he comes out and performs. I WANT to hear Runway!! They didn't have a choice. They couldn't leave me there and were stuck.

Del came out did his set and finished it with Runaway and it was electric! There was so much energy in that venue from the band to the crowd and my friends that wanted to leave were into it and I could tell they were grateful they stayed, even if they never told me personally. Well, it was about a month (maybe 2) when I heard that he killed himself and whenever talk comes up about Del or I hear one of his songs, I always think about that night. My word to you is NEVER take for granted something that's right in front of you. Never assume that you will get another chance later. I'm glad I put my foot down that night because I even told them this might be my only time to see him and unfortunately, I was right. Just thought I'd share that story with you peeps.
