Waterloo 7?

Postby Judith511 » Sat Jun 07, 2008 6:06 pm

I began listening to Leonard when I was about 14 and Songs from a Room came out. I saw Leonard in concert at the University of Waterloo when I was a student in the mid 70's. Not exactly sure of the date. The concert was amazing. When the doors opened my roomates and I ran to the stage and sat on the floor at his feet. What a wonderful night!

At the end of the concert when he went off stage we were getting up and my one roomate ran after him backstage. She didn't come back for awhile and we waited. Finally she came back and said she met him and kissed him. I was so jealous!
