David John Haskins of Bauhaus and Love & Rockets came into the store yesterday.
He had been in the store previously. This time around I said to him can I ask you a question and he said yes. I said when you were in the store last time I was trying to figure out who you were. I asked were you in an English band in the 1980's? And he said yes. I said I was trying to figure out which one...Pet Shop Boys, and then my mind went blank for any other 80's bands that I am a fan of. He said I was in Bauhaus and Love & Rockets. I said oh yes, I love both of those bands! He bought a piece of jewelry from me. I then asked if I could take his photo and have his autograph and he kindly obliged.
He is handsome, stylish, nice and polite!
Often times when it's slow at the store I crank up the volume on the speakers and rock out to Bela Lugosi's Dead, No New Tales To Tell, Ball of Confusion, and So Alive.
Today's encounter was such a great way to make my day!
