A very attractive Thai fan I got to know quite well
(if you catch my drift) did a large 70cm x 50cm oil painting of Neil (yes, she actually did!) and to be honest, it was like something a 5yr old would paint. I felt embarrased as she thrust it upon him in the reception of their hotel, delirious she was! ''My gift! My gift'' she said....I raised my eyebrows, wishing the ground would swallow me up. Neil said to me quietly ''I can't take this thing on the bloody plane!''
He'd assumed that she just wanted it signed!
This was the day before the show when a few of us had inside knowledge of their hotel. They were having tea in the lobby.
One of the crew took it and I often wonder what became of it. Maybe Neil did take it home after all, and it hangs in his bathroom or garden shed
I also often wonder what became of her. No facebook in those days, just email, and I sure didn't get no email saying she loved me
