New & old FANS! Post YOUR Introductions Here!
Apr 11th, 2004 at 5:03am
 
Welcome to our new (and old) Romantics fans!!!

Since we appear to have lost all of our old messages, I want to encourage people to post (or re-post) a brief "introduction" here in this thread so that we can all get to know each other better!

(For those who have already posted, please feel free to do so again!!)


Also,
please try to limit posts on this particular thread to introductions only
--that way it can be "short and sweet"!

Looking forward to seeing everyone's intros!

Smiley

OK,
I will start off the introductions!

I've been a fan of the Romantics since I was in high school--I was introduced to their music by a high school "punk" band... Smiley

The first time I heard "What I Like About You", I was hooked!  I have requested "What I like about You" at almost 40 weddings...(and that's only in the last 11 years!)  Smiley

I have almost all of their albums, and am still searching for copy of "Made in Detroit"....  The majority of my albums, and dance tracks are
VINYL

and I've picked up a couple of the compilation albums on CD....

The first time I saw The Romantics was around the late 80s/early 90s when they played outdoors on a cool evening on the Detroit River at the River Rock Cafe. There was only ahandful (about 30 people) standing outside in front of the stage--everyone else was inside the bar getting drunk... LOL)

Got lots of (more recent) memorabilia and I can't wait to see them again soon... I've seen the 5 times so far and 3 of the times were within the last 6 months!  Smiley

Oh yes, if you haven't guessed it already, I'm from the Detroit Area--the Motor City Rocks!!! Smiley

That's all for now!

--Iris

********************************
Fan intro questionnaire:

Name? Iris
Where are you from? The Motor City (Metro Detroit, MI)
How long have you been a Romantics fan? 23 years (since I was 14!)
When is the last time you saw them live? in February.
Favorite song? What I like about you
Favorite cd? They are all my favorites! Smiley
Favorite band member? Wally, Coz, Mike and (now) Brad.... I like them all! It wouldn't be fair to choose...
How many times have you seen them live? 5
Most memorable show--It's a toss-up between the most recent Cleveland show at the Beachland Ballroom and the one at the Phoenix Center in Pontiac, MI in 1999.
I think the Cleveland one wins out because I did a "marathon" road-trip (only was in Cleveland for 12 hours total and had to turn around and drive home!)

Most cherished memorabilia? The picture and program that Wally, Mike, Coz and Clem signed at the Pontiac Center in 1999.  I waited around about an hour (and was the last fan waiting) before the bouncer got me into their party tent to have my program signed!

Have you ever met the band?  Yes! Smiley
Do you belong to the Yahoo group? Of course, I was the one who started it several years ago! :-D
Yahoo or AOL or other IM screen name? pinkbubelz
Your birthday-- March 19th
Anything else you want to tell us-- Hot pink is my favorite color and If you see ma at a show, I will probably be wearing a fuschia leather jacket... Smiley

Mac users might not have a right click button, but can still do the cut and paste. Wink

AND.... I've edited my original post to follow the blanks. Smiley

Remember, please post only your intros in this thread.
 If you would like to make a comment, we encourage you to create another thread for it... Smiley  That way, it will be easier to find everyone's introductions!

*****************

I also added a question about IM screen names to the list as well. Wink

When I referred to my friend John, I was speaking of John Wicks of The Records. I only use his reference because he has mentioned more than once about a local Romantics fan he runs into, whom he thinks I know...probably it isn't you...but, since I don't know your first name...
