How cool........maybe we will meet next year.......I will definitely be back.
Yes, he is a hunk! With talent......and a degree in organic chemistry........smart, talented , good looking....he's the real deal.
In Vegas, oh probably 7 years or so ago, Darryl was to have a show that night on a stage set up outside between Fiztgerald's and Four Queens downtown. I was walking by when a lot of men were milling around setting up early in the day. Then I realized they were getting ready for soundcheck. I stopped to see what was going on, and then Darryl stepped up to the microphone and began singing. No one else walking around stopped to listen. I DID! I knew it was Darryl. The sound crew was set up probably a half block away in front of the stage. They kept yelling stuff to Darryl and he would yell back. Darryl couldn't really hear himself sing because the speakers were in front of him, and the sound crew wasn't making good choices in my opinion. The music was not right just yet for the concert. I was shaking my head "no", and Darryl looked down and said, "NO"? I told him what I thought, and he yelled out to the sound crew and told them what I had said. Then they ALL started asking my opinion and "we"
all worked on it for about 30 minutes!
It was fun and the sound was wonderful in the end!
When Darryl was finished with soundcheck, he nodded his head to me and walked to the back of the stage where he was going to get in a vehicle to leave. I saw him still back there and I began to walk that way to get an autograph (no camera on me - it was in my room!) As I tried to get back there, some of the road crew started yelling that I shouldn't be back there (it was on the street!). Darryl looked up to see who they were yelling at, and he said, "Hey, ya'll let her back here!" So I got to meet him, talk to him, and I got his autographed. He was so sweet!
So, there's my story of Darryl! WOW - it's been quite a while since bestamaw told a story, huh?
