Back in I believe 1977, Harry Chapin came to St. Louis, the Opera House.  Our seats were at the back row of the first tier, center aisle. 

A new singer by the name of Billy Joel was the warm-up act, and as he was performing, I turned around as someone was standing behind me, and there, leaning against a column was Harry.  He looked at me and said, “Shhhhh”, with his finger to his lips. 

After Billy Joel brought down the house, Harry took the stage and his first words were, “Man, Harry who?”

Note from Harrysfriends, it was indeed 1977, September 30th to be exact, when Harry and the band played the Kiel Opera house.
