>Lou Rawls ~ R.I.P.
He was actually the last act that I did the Lighting Design for, before I retired from Show Biz.
I had moved to Idaho and wasn’t planning on going back to Vegas to work when my boss called me and told me to come back and light one last show. I wasn’t happy about it but I went back to Vegas and did the lighting. I was glad I did. He put on a great show and he was very friendly and polite. I was standing in front of the stage during the rehearsal, taking notes when he walked over and said, “Hi, I’m Lou”.
“Hi Lou, I’m Pat the Lightman”.
(you didn’t think my name was Retired Geezer, did you?)
If I remember correctly, his opening act was Nancy Wilson.
