    I met Gina in the spring of 1973 in Nashville when she was featured at Black Poodle for two weeks. we spent time going to dinner,clubs and taking in a drive-in theater. she would not remember me but I have never forgot.I drove a green sports car MGB and she rented a car the night we did a movie. she was interested in the movie because of the title The Bon Bon girl or something similar. hope she reads this and maybe responds.the first night we met was a coffee shop late at night after her show.I was not aware of her national fame at the time but did appreciate her beauty and friendship.Many years ago for sure and glad she is so successful and well.

    In about 1966 me and my band (I was about 18 yrs old) did a mini tour of some clubs in North Carolina with her. Never forget she left the phone off the hook and talked to someone on breaks and just left it off hook and connected entire night as I recall. At the time that was a big deal for us and never knew she went on to become well known until a few years ago when I found out about her online. Memories!!
