    Reader comments on Mayor of the Sunset Strip

    Subject: Rodney Bingenheimer!
    Date: May 11, 2009
    Sender: ElisePrevious | Next

    Dearest Rodney!
    Here it is, August 14th 2006, and I just finished watching the Movie. I was in total AWE of Rodney Bingenheimer. Why? I grew up in NYC, Manhattan actually...and besides, while carrying my camera's around my neck all the times, and always being asked, if I was Linda McCartney? Without any lying, I would always end up at The Bottom Line Shows, The Central Park, under the stage, for good Photos, The Pier Concerts and more, because I look like Linda McCartney. GOD BLESS HER. Now, I'm asked if I am her younger Sister, of all things!
    Why I am writing this, is that, while watching this wonderful Documentary, for the first time, I felt like the NYC Counterpart/Equivalence, of Rodney! I was in London, in '71, for the FREE Humble Pie and Grand Funk Concert, Hyde Park...and sooooo much more has happened with Musicians, in my Life. I am not the proverbial "Groupie" at all, and never was. I was more like Rodney! But, of the Female kind. I would know about Bands, new ones that haven't even put out a 45 yet "Aerosmith", in NH, while going to College and Golden Earring before anyone ever heard the name, and MORE! I have always been the Phone Call people would make, in order to, answer a Music Trivia Question! I could go on and on....I have started writing a Book....although who knows.
    I moved here to The SpaceCoast, of Florida, in '85, after having worked a day Job in NYC and Moonlit, at a small hole in the wall, in the East Village....called St. Marks Bar and Grill, after, at about the time The Stones made their first Video there...."Waiting on a Friend". David Bowie was a Customer, of mine....who may remember me chasing him down 1st Ave., for a Tip, because ALL, of my Regulars MADE ME!!! David Bowie was always extremely nice...
    You see? This is why I would really love to write then meet Rodney. We are cut, from the same cloth....only his cloth got HUGE. I'm still, at a young "52", living in the late 60's, 70's 80's and 90's, especially to all the people I know.
    Well...now that Sir Paul is Single again....everyone is calling me...for me to try to meet him. At his 2002 Concert, I saw him twice, two differnt Venues and one, I was in the 2nd Row Aisle. I know he looked right at me....and people around me were telling me, I was probably "freaking him out because I look so much like Linda"!
    I would love it, if Rodney Bingenheimer would write to me. I save everything, as well. I still have old 1971 London Music Papers, like our Rolling Stone, old Tickets, old everything! But, I never did ask David Bowie, for an Autograph...I felt it would be rude, because he was coming into the Bar, to get away....I am not a Joke, a Liar, or a Scam...I just have SO many REAL STORIES and maybe he can help me, with ALL that I have? I'd be more than happy to send, what I have written so far, my Picture, anything? Please? I loved the Movie and it's just the "Obscurity", of Rodney's turning people on, to the obscure Music....that's Me! That's what I've been doing all my Life. I even got accepted to Emerson College, in Boston, for Broadcasting...because my DREAM was not, to always be the College D.J.. Maybe Rodney and I could "Create" a Cool Obscure Kind of Show together? You never know? I was born in California....I'll come back out, if we could work something out?
    Thanks!
    PEACE,
    ELISE as in Beethoven's "Fur Elise"
