15 April 1980
19 years old
Met Stephen (Cummings) and Martin (Armiger) from The Sports at Allans [Music Store] in town. Martin’s a darling, Stephen’s a weirdo.
In retrospect I see that Stephen was (and still is) very shy, and uncomfortable in such situations. The body language in this photo that I took, says it all. In the intervening 30 years (!) I’ve encountered him at many social events – we have mutual friends, but I’ve never yet been able to strike up a conversation. What isn’t said in this diary entry, is that I was absolutely mad about him and the band. He is still a very good looking man.
