I got my Fabulous Jacuzzi tie at Phil’s Hello, I Must Be Going show in Dallas in 1983. Four years later, I wore it to the Invisible Touch show (also in Dallas). After the show, I played a hunch the band would show up at the Greenville Avenue Country Club - a bar frequented by touring rockstars when in Dallas. Sure enough, Phil and the rest of Genesis soon arrived. I went up to shake Phil’s hand, and he flipped my tie up, saying “So YOU’RE the one who bought it!” I still have it, cherish it, and wear it every time I play out in my Phil Collins tribute band (http://www.thephilcollinsexperience.com)
I’m from Dallas! are you still living in the area?
