While I was there I saw a Sean Lennon show, then on the way back to NY, I stopped in Iceland to see Sean lead his mom Yoko Ono’s show: then on to San Francisco for a Buffalo Springfield show and home for my birthday party; then Keith Richards interview at the NY Library and later, in November, I was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame!

The Rolling Stones landed in New York to announce a new world tour. Flying in on a blimp with the Stones logo painted on it, they said they were looking forward to playing three types of shows: in stadiums, arenas, and clubs. They all looked in fine form, except Charlie, who looked a little airsick from the blimp ride.
Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year were performers; Aerosmith, Solomon Burke, The Flamingos, Michael Jackson, Queen, Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Ritchie Valens; side-men James Burton and Johnnie Johnson; and Chris Blackwell. The evening was very interesting with people such as Keith Richards, Moby and the group ‘N Sync making the presentations and joining in the after dinner Jam Session.
