Meeting The Rats


2 June 1980
20 years old
Melbourne
Feeling ultra high. Met the Rats in town at the Southern Cross [Hotel] with Lee.

I remember Lee and I sitting in The Grill Room, one of the cafs at uni, first thing in the morning. We were talking about The Boomtown Rats concert, a few days before. Suddenly one of us (can’t remember who) said something about the band leaving Melbourne today. ‘Shall we go into the city and see if we can meet them at their hotel?’ Somehow we always knew or heard where bands were staying in those days. So we picked up our bags, skipped all our classes and left. Fortune favours the crazy. We got there and met them all before they left for the airport. They were all very nice. Bob called me ‘Love’.
