Further note on Poland

Post by Unspoken Words » Sat Apr 28, 2007 4:56 pm

As we left the venue we saw LC walk down the stairs and outside. A short time later outside the cars with LC, Anjani and the band were pulling out. My wife and I waved. Two 'fans' (one who had been inside at the buffet but security would not let go upstairs to LC- I felt sorry for him) were standing at the gate. The gates opened and the cars sped by. One of the 'fans' (the other one, not the one who had been inside) ran after the cars and they had to go through red lights to avoid him.

Later he came back and started to talk to my wife and I. Where was Leonard staying he asked. The 'Sheraton'? We did not know. He repeatedly said 'Leonard is a strange man'.

It highlights the pitfalls and dangers of fanaticism. The 'fan' could have been in my opinion a danger to LC and the band. He definitely seemed 'strange'!

That's a rather scarey account :shock: ! Having to run red lights endangered Leonard and Anjani, too!! It has the feel of paparazzi with Diana.
