In 1976, my good friend Michelle Meyer worked the guest list for the club and she called me with a tip-off that Ringo was on the guest list for the Bob Marley And The Wailers showcase that evening at The Roxy. I remember it like yesterday when the call came down, "Brad Elterman! Ringo Starr is on the guest list for the Bob Marley dog dance this evening! Be there or be square!"
As you can see in this rare photograph, Ringo did show up and he brought some friends, John Lennon and Yoko. I was pumped up for days on this encounter!
Was I a paparazzo? No, just a teenage kid with a camera following his dreams!
