43. Hung out backstage with Asia...
For those not in the know, Asia was a progressive rock group from the early 80s.

They were in Philly about 15 years ago, and a friend worked security at the place they played. He got us back stage, and we actually hung out with the band. It was 1991, so their fame had faded, so we were the only ones there with the band. It was a real "Almost Famous" moment, sitting back stage with the band. Geoffrey Downs offered us some vegetable dip. Over all a surreal experience.
