Damon Albarn and Geoffrey Dicker

You gotta love New York.  One minute, you are on the Upper West Side, the next minute you find out Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz is going to be  way the hell across town within a matter of minutes.  Always up for a challenge, I made a quick pit stop at my apartment to pick up some cds and  hustled my arse down to SoHo.  Of course to add a little excitement to the mix, a tornado warning had just been issued for Manhattan.  Undaunted, I got down to SoHo as quickly as I could and made it with seconds to spare.  Damon was very nice and in addition to taking a photo with me, he also signed 2 Blur and 2 Gorillaz cd covers for me.  Now I just need to get Banksy to sign “Think Tank” and I’ll be all set.  Thanks again Damon.  It was a real pleasure and a very unexpected early birthday surprise to meet you!  P.S.  A little bit after this photo was taken, the skies opened up and we faced torrential rain storms, but I made it home and dry.
