The logo above was sent in by Mike and Lisa Branch. Rumor has it that they have some great NEIL!!! photos! Judging from the photo in the logo- I'd say they DO! Thanks, Mike and Lisa (BabySimone)!

Thanks so much for sharing, Anne Marie!
I noticed you wrote something about "cooking it up" in Spyder's Soul Kitchen East (I'm not quoting exactly, but you know what I mean!) ANYWAY, I was the one who called "Rockline" in 1988 and asked if Spyder's Soul Kitchen was the name of the studio attached to their house! ( I knew damn well that it was, but I needed a question!) Pat told me it was, and I asked if their was a story behind that name, and she said, "It's where we cook it up!" I was crying hysterically (Yes, I am The Crying Girl! I think Neil actually gave me that name...), and one of the first things I said was "Oh my God - I'm so nervous!", to which Pat replied: (AND I QUOTE!!!) "Don't be nervous!" I know you were asking what our favorite Pat quotes were, and that's mine! I hear her voice in my head whenever I'm nervous or afraid of something! Congrats on your website - you should be very proud! Anne Marie
Hey RR, I have a Neil! story if you would like to put it on your site. Nov. '97 at the HOB in New Orleans. The band was playing Heartbreaker and I was in front row center(my favorite spot)Neil squatted right in front of me and broke out into that long solo, and did not move until he finished!! :-D I do believe that was one of the greatest moments of my life. They should have filmed it. It Would have made a phenomenal video. :-) Not only that but he kept waving at me and saying Hi the whole time. What a man! I was thrilled for weeks after. Lesley(cool-l)

I love your webpage. Neil is one of my biggest influences for playing guitar ever since I saw him on American Bandstand. I was probably about 12 years old at the time.
This shot was taken at Summerfest in Milwaukee. My friend Tony, on the left, went to Summerfest with me to see Neil play. He spotted Neil walking around so we stopped him to chat. I think he was really touched that we recognized him. He was so nice. It was also a great show!
The three of us are all Italian so I thought that was kinda neat too. My name is Nick...I'm on the right with the red jacket.
Thanks again for a great website.
All the best...Nick Giusto (same initials!)
Thanks,NG, for sending the photo and letter!
You got great taste--and great initials!-RR
