And when I saw Red Socks, I thought that Arlene had chosen that colour as a take-off pun on Red Rocks ;-) ... I guess because I haven't kept up on Dino and his socks of any colour :roll: ;-) .

This is especially for Arlene!

A couple of days after the fabulous Detroit concert in May, Dino posted on Twitter that he had left ALL his socks in the hotel at the last city...or something to that effect....and was now "sockless"! Well, ever one to attempt to right a wrong, and knowing which hotel everyone had stayed at, I took it upon myself to call the hotel.

"Hello, my name is....... I believe that Leonard Cohen, his band and crew were staying at your hotel a couple of nights ago when they were here for a HUGE concert in Detroit at the Fox Theatre. One of the members of the band seems to have left a few socks in his room and I was wondering if I might be able to pick them up so I can forward them to him."

"Who is this?????"

"Well, once again, my name is......... I'm a great fan of Leonard Cohen and I would really like to help this band member."

"BAND member?...I don't know what you're talking about, but we have no socks anywhere!"

"Oh, well, yeah, sure, okay..thanks."

I am sure Dino's socks are now being worn by several individuals in the "tenderloin" district of downtown Deeetroit!

And this....dear friends, is where Arlene and her red Polo's entered the picture! We can't have our Dino sockless! :D :D

Thanks Arlene for taking care of our "guy"!

Now that is a funny story about trying to retrieve Dino's socks for him. I can just imagine the bewildered clerk on the other end of the phone. Thanks for sharing this. Loved it!

Thanks Esther! You are the BEST FAN ever!!! And, of course, you know that your site will be populated by many of us Dinoites!

Advice to everyone...make sure you get your copy of "Hotel Suites"! It is awesome, full of great music, and happiness!!! Dino (with a little help from his friends ;-) ) has compiled a great album! Available through cdbaby.com.

To give equal time, although it's a few years old, I HIGHLY recommend Roscoe's cd "Walk On"! Great blues!! Will blow you away! Available through Amazon.

Happy Christmas and a big hug to all,
Diana :D

WoW, he sure does, BV. At first glance, I thought it was and was wondering how he'd managed it... tattoo and all... and if it was part of the sleeve of his new cd. Good find :D .

Hi BV! Happy New Year! Hope you are in a warm and dry home by now! Have you checked out Dino's new fan page on Facebook that was started by mnkyface (Esther)? Photo in there you might find interesting...and then I will talk with you more... ;-)

ps..there is a remote similarity, but minus the tattoos...and imo, Dino is MUCH better looking!

This appeared on My Twitter sidebar. Mmmm... In LA for LC's studio album? LC tour rehearsals? Visiting family?
All of the above?
I'm in LA. Getting soft, eating Mexican food. What fun.
