thanks to comped tickets we recently got 2 consecutive nights of wonderful music at two historic halls, carnegie and the beacon. our friend bob watanabe gave us comps for the ben harper charlie musselwhite show. and passes for the after party! but that sort of fizzled.
friends and i once had backstage passes for a miles davis performance. we were hanging out with the band waiting for the after party to start when miles came through the group. not looking right or left he hissed in his low gravelly voice: "get the bags!"
party over; but just hearing miles spit "get the bags" was a thrill! like the time peter falk put his arm around me and said: "sweetheart... is that the gent's room?" link
