My birthday got even more fabulous when I met Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters backstage at Joe’s Pub on September 20, 2009. Jake was performing his favorite hits of the 70s with legendary cabaret singer Justin Bond.
Jake was kind enough to sign 2 Scissor Sisters CD booklets for me as well as 2 original photos that I took of him performing a super-secret show late last year with his band. He was also gracious enough to take a photo with me and truthfully, he couldn’t have been nicer. You’d never know this is the same person who electrifies audiences across the globe with hits such as “Laura,” ‘”Take Your Mama,” “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin'” and a cover of Pink Floyd’s classic “Comfortably Numb.” I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to wash my shoulder again. Thanks for making my birthday extra special Jake!
