When I was active duty in the USAF, stationed at Rhein-Main Air Base in Frankfurt, Germany in the early 90’s. Joan Faulker, an American singer gigging in Germany, asked me and my dear friend Roslyn who I call Black Barbie, and who was also in uniform, to be her background singers. Here we three are, Joan in red, and Roslyn and I in black, in some sauna sized club in Germany singing to a playback. Joan’s setlist included FAME, NEW YORK NEW YORK, and THAT’s WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR…just to name the pop tunes audiences enjoyed.
I have had the pleasure of reuniting with both Joan and Roslyn, after almost two decades, and the looks on our faces says it all.
