I had first met him the year before, when the dance club (of which I was an unwilling member) and the various school bands and choirs went on a trip to Tennesse, to play at various high schools there. No, I have no idea why Tennessee highs schools wanted to listen to our bands and choirs, and watch our dance club. He played bass in the school band. He was about my height, with shortish brown hair with a fringe front and back. Hey, it was the late 1980s, we thought that was cool.
