A Fast Encounter

May 19th, 1979

I went to Max's to see The Fast. They were really good and I had a great time. I spoke with Billy Stark from the Blessed most of the night. He is so friggin sweet that is just amazes me sometimes. Howie Pyro was not there so I was disappointed. He probably went to the Mudd Club. I wish he had come to Max's instead. And it was really good because I wore my button of Billy Stark and I was hoping that he would be there. I'll probably see Billy & Howie this week because I think that me & Eileen are finally going to work on the Blessed Fan Club.

A Richard Hell Encounter

May 18th, 1979

I went to see Destroy all Monsters at Hurrah's. Where do I even begin. Everyone from Blondie was there except for Debbie & Chris. Clem Burke said Hi. Nigel came over & talked to me for a long time. But Franke & Jimmy were complete snobs. Anyway - I talked to Richard Hell for a really long time. He wants me to run their fan club but I can't because of the Blessed Fan Club. But I told him I would so I decided that I'll ask Richard if one of my friends can do it and I would just help out with it. Richard said to me - What do you want to be , a groupie? Because I told him I was in college. I guess he was kind of surprised. And he went to give me his phone number but I said I had it already. Can you imagine that Richard Hell wanted to give me his phone number? And then afterwards I went to Max's and saw Billy Stark & Howie Pyro there. I told them that Richard Hell wants me to do his fan club also. I don't think they want me to do both.

A Blessed Night

May 13th, 1979

I went to see the Blessed at Max's. It was kind of a weird night. JoAnn and I were on the guest list. We got their early so we drove Eileen & Howie to Eileen's house and then we dropped Howie off at some girl Debbie's house who I am really not a big fan of. I heard that she is really rich and Howie lives with her sometimes. We ran into Cheetah Chrome and spoke with him for a little while.
Well as for the Blessed show, they only did 1 set. And Max's was kind of empty so Howie & Billy were being really obnoxious to the audience. They have some really new good song called Fairy Tales. I just love it. Found out some good Blondie dirt. They will be at Powerhouse all week recording. Maybe I can go in one day.
We went upstairs after the show and everyone in the Blessed seemed kind of depressed. Walter was not friendly at all. Brad didn't talk to me. I fought with Howie the entire time. Billy was the only nice one. I get along really great with the Blessed, right? Howie just seemed so upset after the show. I think he took the small crowd the hardest. It was just a strange night. And Marina was not there - she is in Texas.

Frank Infante on Stage

April 28th, 1979

Went to see the Heartbreakers again at Max's. Johnny was so great. Frank Infante from Blondie went on stage during the second set. I spoke with Howie Pyro alot and gave him a ride home. Brad was there and I got to speak with him alot also. He was so sweet. He told me that he might try out for the David Johansen Band. If that is true, then the David Jo Band really did break up. I can not imagine if Tommy & Frankie were not in the band anymore. I just wouldn't go anymore. I am adding Walter Lure back to my favorites list.

More Johnny Thunders

April 27th, 1979

I went to see the Heartbreakers at Max's. They were as great as always. I saw Howie before at Natasha's but he never made it to Max's. I saw alot of people there that I knew. Walter Lure is just so amazing, I love watching him play with Johnny. They are so funny together. Kim wasn't invited to Walter Lure's birthday party. I thought that was kind of strange since she is like his number 1 fan.

Birthday Party

April 22nd, 1979

Eileen Polk called me and invited me to a birthday party for Walter Lure at the Mudd Club. It just did not work out being able to go into NYC. No one else could go and I did not feel like going alone. It is so much harder to go into NYC alone from college than from home. I know I missed the chance of a lifetime. I am sure that everyone will be there. But I figure, if I was invited to this, I will get invited to other stuff also.

More Heartbreakers

April 20th, 1979

Went to see the Heartbreakers at the Place at Dover. They were so incredibly good. Walter Lure stopped and talked to me for alittle while. He was so nice. We talked about the Blessed and all kinds of good stuff. I saw so many people there that I knew. It seemed that everyone was at the show. And the best part of all was that Johnny Thunders was not even that f'd up. It was great.
