Michael K. BS: Brushes with Greatness (25) RE: BS: Brushes with Greatness 04 Nov 99

To Steve Latimer:

The band was called ''The Julie Manchester Band''...and yes I met Bennett and Vannelli at the Black Knight Room of the Royal York.....back in the days when they had headliners in the Imperial Room.

I met Clapton at the old Triumph Hotel (Keele / 401 as that's where the entertainers performing at Kingswood - Canada's wonderland stayed) a Howard Johnsons.

Met Aretha at the Metro Convention Centre, and Burton at the Valhalla Inn, at the East Mall/Burnamthorpe area..

Another great place for meeting celebrities was (in all places!) Thunderbay!!! They would all stay at the Valhalla Inn there, when they would do stop over concerts from Minnesota.) This place was even more of a gold mine than any hotel I'd worked in in Toronto, and we spent a lot of time in Thunderbay at this property.....without going into stories, some of the people we met in Thunderbay:

Paul Shaffer Bob Hope Johnny Cash and June Carter Red Skelton Flip Wilson The Temptations Phyllis Diller The Smothers Brothers

...and others who's names escape me for the moment..
