Dick -
I've sent via paypal too to you. ("never stop ... de da da da, de doo doo doo ...).
Lovely idea.
Really appreciate your co-ordination!

thanks for comments anyway!


No, I wouldn't expect him to turn up either. It's easier for a band to turn up to such an event than a loner anyway (as there is at least safety in numbers to protect you from overzealous fandom :D). And, apart from that, LC has "shown up" already to over a hundred gigs to thank his fans for their lifetime of support, so he has already done enough on that front. In the context of Michael Jackson's death, I was listening to a BBC correspondent the other day saying how Jackson's announced 50 date tour due to have taken place around now would have been an impossible undertaking for a man much younger than Jackson's fifty years never mind him. In agreeing to myself how crazy the 50 date tour sounded, I was reminded just what an effort a certain 74 year old must have made to be there every night promised over the last couple of years. Continuing good health to the man.

I'd love to contribute, I just don't know which option to chose, since I'm from Germany and there are only "ebay-Artikel", "Andere Waren" or "Dienstleistung". That means either things bought off ebay, things bought somewhere else or some piece of service.
If anyone could tell me, if it would be ok to check the service option, I'd really appreciate it.

Hey Dick,

I've just sent my $10. My name is Joy Ezekiel and although I'm British I've lived in the USA for some time now, so I guess you can put me down as Magnolia, Texas.....

I have, with great humility, sent along my contribution to this brilliant initiative.

Is the intent to have an unveiling on September 21?


Meet up?

Do not know yet what kind of hanging/unveiling cerermony we will do, but will certainly post anything here as it develops.

Susy - I have pm'd my address to you for mailing cash. That will be fine.

Thanks, Dick! Just made my payment! :razz:
@ Actually: Paypal suggests that you may choose "service" for every purpose which cannot be specified otherwise... Which is what I did!
