Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora circa 1987....Hampton Coliseum.  This was my first experience with total "starstruckness."  I was totally blown away by how sweet and down-to-earth  these 2 rock stars were, meeting a group of us backstage.  I was also a little surprised how short Jon was, but still quite dreamy:)  

I'm so lucky I have a job (and have had it for so long) where I have the opportunity to not only go see great concerts, but also meet up with some of the musicians I'm so fond of -- of course, backstage access was a little easier back in the 80's and 90's.  Some other bands I've met along the way:  Aerosmith, Billy Idol, Whitesnake, Alice Cooper, Allman Brothers, Blue Oyster Cult, Triumph, Def Leppard, Foghat, Ted Nugent, Styx........  The Rolling Stones backstage in 2004 was a dream come true!  Still holding out hope to one day meet Eric Clapton and/or Robert Plant.  Hey, a girl can dream, can't she?  Be sure to stay on top of all the shows coming our way this summer - maybe you can sneak backstage !
