Can I take my picture with you?
The Price of Fame
Fort Lauderdale is a big little town and there’s not much here in the way of ORIGINAL MUSIC TALENT other than me.
If you search on Google and Bing for terms related to music and Fort Lauderdale you can find lots of articles about me.
Before I released my three new albums, two of original music and one with my favorite covers, I tested the material out as far as the covers were concerned in local bars and after doing my take of songs like Backdoor Man and Sympathy for the Devil people in the crowd would often come up to say how great I was, etc.
Yeah I know I can sing low notes pretty well and I have stage presence and my original music is totally unique in that it is the first real PROPHECY MUSIC ever recorded, but it was not the level of praise I am seeing now from ‘fans’.
So the last couple of nights I went out, I ran into complete strangers who would come up to me and ask to have their picture taken with me.
At first I thought, what is this guy gay or something, why would he want to take their picture with me.
He was with a table of people and one of them knew who I was so the whole table wanted selfies to post in their social media I guess or show friends they met someone ‘famous’.
Then the selfie with a famous person seekers all wanted autographs. I’ve been asked almost all my adult life for autographs. First it was when I was the star or emcee of my ‘Teen Dances’ as a young entrepreneur when I used to run local dance gigs as a kid myself. Later in life it was usually when I valet parked an expensive rare car and didn’t wait in line at a club so the people waiting in line would come up to me in the club and ask for my autograph thinking with my long hair I was a rock star or something.
Since in my younger days people used to say I looked a lot like Jimmy Morrison I would usually sing the piece of paper given to me by strangers with JIM on it and move on.
Now I am signing REX and if the autograph seeker is a cute young girl I sign ReXXX.
So if you see photos of people with me in them popping up now, I have no clue who these people are, they just like my music.
In my opinion, the best part of ‘fame’ from singing is when you chat up a young girl and say go to SoundCloud or iTunes and here is my name. Many them instantly want to get with you since after all, how many famous guys will they ever get a chance to MEAT.
