"Some of the amazing "non magicians" that I have been able to meet - who are still magic".
Sharleen Spiteri (Texas)
I am a bit of a Texas fan and I properly got into them around the time of the "Black Eyed Boy" album in the mid nineties.
This Texas gig was a little while coming as I booked the tickets prior to lock down. We were on the front row as part of a meet and greet experience. We also received VIP laminates, a signed set list and the memories.
Sharleen was very friendly and while the opportunity is a couple of minutes at the most, I will always remember. Featuring in the photo with me is my wife Nadine.
Since this photo was taken, I got to see Texas perform in 2023 and I still play their music most of the time.

Alan Fletcher (Dr Karl) Neighbours
Like many, I watched Neighbours growing up in the 80's and 90's and I do recall the Kennedy family moving into Ramsay St.
Karl Kennedy aka Alan Fletcher is a bit of a Neighbours legend. I was able to meet him during his "The Doctor will see you now" tour.
Such a friendly chap who signed quite a few things for me. You get a few minutes to chat with him and I will remember this when watching him on screen. I still enjoy a bit of Neighbours.
His theatre show was brilliant and well worth seeing. It totally made up for the fact that I missed the Neighbours Celebration tour due to Covid.
If you get a chance to see Alan perform, I would totally recommend, though it is likely to be a while now before any future tour due to his filming commitments.
