I have been a huge Al fan since I first saw him in 1977 at the Roxy opening for George Benson. He got a standing ovation and we were so excited that we left right after and didnt stay to see George. I immediately went and bought his album and have been following him ever since. I think there may be just a few years that I have missed not seeing him in concert. But one particular year, 1980 - being a diehard AJ fan - even though I was 9 months pregnant and due any minute - I still was not going to miss his concert. Needless to say shortly after the concert was over, I went into labor and that next morning at 5am - Aricca Janae (initals AJ) was born.
So needless to say, I was super excited to see him at this beautiful venue at the Russian River in No. Ca. especially excited to get such great shots.
Next dream is to see him in Europe - hopefully one day.
