Rockline Report

on November 02, 1999

With all the buzz going on about ROCKLINE, we asked our friend Tony Visconti for his take on the happenings, and he was kind enough to send us his comments.

Here is an excerpt:
when he walked through the crowd, you knew he was there even though you couldn't see him (he has this straaaaaaange effect on crowds).

May waived to him, he spotted her and then she pointed to me. He said, "Let that man come up here," or maybe he was trying to have me kicked out, but the security guards parted and I was sitting next to him in a few seconds.
