Venue: Bastion Hotel, Santpoort-Noord, just outside Haarlem, Netherlands.
Date: 20th April 2013
Starring: Judah Bauer of the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and me.
Waiting to check in at reception, I spot Judah at the bar and walk over to say hello as we’ve worked together sporadically for years.
Me: “alright Judah, how’s it going?”
Judah: “I recognise you but I can’t remember your name….what’s your name?”
Judah: (looking confused) “Oh….hey man.”
Conversation doesn’t go much further and a while later we bump into each other in the elevator going up:
Me: “Hello again!”
Judah: “Who were you working with last time I saw you? I can’t place it…..”
Me: “You guys!”
Judah: “Oh, wow. I don’t remember that…..”
