On August 19, 1998, I went to our annual Erie County Fair for the day. I was having a good time walking around the fairgrounds. At about 7:00 p.m. I went into the outdoor music dome because I saw that Lance Diamond, a Buffalo lounge musician, was going to be playing. Lance has played a few songs with the Goo Goo Dolls at some of their Buffalo shows in the past. I was sitting there waiting for it to start when I noticed a guy sitting a few rows ahead of me who looked familiar. He had on a baseball hat, sunglasses and an eyebrow ring. He was sitting with a security guard that used to work at the clubs where the Goos had played. So, I went up to the guy in the hat and it was Robby! He graciously gave me his autograph. We talked for a bit while we were waiting for Lance to come out. He was very friendly and down-to-earth. After that I saw him again and this time had a camera, so I got a couple of pictures taken with him. It was the best time I have ever had at the Fair.
