Well, well, it's been 27 years . . .

Many people know me. For many different reasons.  But as far as 1 single thing where the most people came to know me, it was August 31, 1996. I sang onstage with Sting in front of 16,000 people.

It would be cool to speak with Sting sometime. I would bet he would remember me because I have heard his crew sure did. Perhaps I may bump into him when he is in Vegas sometime.

But it's something that took me by surprise when I thought about it the other day - it's been 27 years ago. Time marches on and significant events fade into the past. I'm sure before to long an August 31st will come and go and I will have forgotten the significance of that day.

But then again, I think about this: 200 years from now, how many people will even know that there was a Sting?

You are one of the most famous people that I know, haha.  If I could choose anyone to sing with on stage, it wouldn't be Sting, it would be God, haha.

Hello Rocky - memorable for sure.   It's interesting to wonder what will be remembered.   Whether when something occurs in the moment or much longer ago.  Now, I am just rambling.  And thinking out loud in a comment.

I know that no one will remember me in 200 years! Sting will be remembered - there will still be his songs in whatever format they are at the time. (As long as people are still around)

Good morning Rocky. If I sung on stage with Sting he would remember singing with a guy who could not hold a note unless it was on paper. Kudos to you! Happy anniversary. Enjoy your day.

That was cool. never mind 200 years, you might find that many under 30 think Sting is what bees do.

This is definitely a cool experience to have in your memory bank. I watched Sting in Only Murders in the Building. He seemed like a great guy
