The bodyguard thing happened awhile ago. John can probably pin down the dates for us.
The bodyguard thing happend at the UFO Expo in Los Angeles I think in 1988. Jim Arament was the promoter and I was big UFO name at the time.
When I got to the expo Jim explained that he had hired a couple of guys to dress up in black and pretend to be my body guard. It was hilarious. They followed me all around (with a real serious look on their faces), stood around while I had a hamburger in the coffee shop (looking menacingly all around), stood there while I was giving interviews and escorted me to the stage for my presentation and then stood guard while I gave it.
Jim put on many UFO Expos and I was always invited but they were never as 'electric' as that one with the 'bodyguards'. We had some great laughs over that one. My 'star' pretty much faded after that and I never did do many more lectures.
Thanks for reminding me Schuyler.
And Jim, if you are out there give me a call, I haven't heard from you in years. I'm in the book.
