It's not what you think....
There have been a number of significant events going on in my life lately. ALOT. But one that goes down not only as supremely memorable, but looooong awaited too.
There were concerts, parental curfews, records played too loud and too late into too many nights. There was a wayward bus trip from home in Solana Beach to Hollywood to do something I shouldn't have done to see them. Records...yes, records...bought and taped and danced danced danced to. I belonged to a Bay City Roller "sorority" called the RollerLoonies, and my nickname was "Leslie's BaNANa". I had numerous, fabulous pen pals, and loved every minute of my Roller-Lovin' youth. Ahhhh....so much fun, so many awesome memories. But that's not what this story is about.
This is about waiting 35 years and finally getting to meet my favorite Bay City Roller - lead singer - Les McKeown. Amid so much life going on this year at my house, I was pleasantly surprised and shot with adrenaline to see that he and his "legendary" band would be in Redondo Beach on September 23. I was SO there. The big difference at this concert versus any other time I saw them in concert, is that I was alone...I didn't have any of my regular Roller sisters with me. But no worries....I met some new girls and was instantly friends. As with anything Roller-y, I didn't mind going alone and braving whatever necessary to see the band!
Let's just say, my life is complete now :)
