Stevie Wonder Has Been Following Me Around

MusicAnecdotesCulture

"…And I'm like, totally confused. So I look over to my side and it's because Stevie Wonder is literally right next to me and he's checking out of here as well. So my mind was pretty blown. I grew up a huge fan of his music, like so many of us fast forward to the following year. I'm once again a Nam. It's the final day of the convention.…"

"…Yeah. That's amazing. Matt, I just can't believe you've had that many interactions with him just randomly. That's amazing. I've seen him in concert a few times, and he's just been absolutely amazing. Amazing. Just one of the of my favorite concerts of all time. And the guy has a sense of humor, too.…"

"…And I just think the world of this performance performance, and it's something I grew up with, and it was my first interaction with them. And I think you'll enjoy it. And if you haven't seen it, I don't know, enjoy.…"

"…I forgot to mention if you can name the guitarist with the blue hat on, I'll give you bonus points. Here he is somebody who had a famous hit later on in life. But he is somebody who is famous. He helped produce a talking book but he's pretty famous he's not recognizable for who he became later. But the guy in the blue hat playing guitar in the background, nodding his head is pretty famous.…"

"…Matt, what a great couple of stories. You know, I think that that speaks to sort of the magic of Los Angeles at times, you never know who you're going to run into. And I think I told you this story before, but I remember one day I was working at Menchy is when I was, like, 15 years old or 16 years old or something like that. And Paul Stanley from Kiss Walks In, and I just turned into an absolute ghost.…"

"…Man, that was so good. I haven't seen that before, but it was so fun to watch, and it definitely brought up a few things to mind. First off, the fact that he was, like, 22 there. And at that point, he'd already been releasing music professionally for over a decade.…"

"…Yeah, man. La is something today at work. I got to help out Robbie Krueger. So that was pretty awesome, but, yeah, just the around of people you run into at the most random times as well. It's kind of cool, especially because I've had the luxury of running into a lot of people that have impacted my life through the arts in a lot of ways. So, yeah, never a dull day. I in la.…"

"…And I think if memory serves, I think he co wrote Maybe Your Baby on Talking Book, and it would make sense. It sounds a lot sounds heavily influenced by Ray, but I think I'm just going off of memory there, but yeah, Ray Parker Jr. Looks a little different in that video than he did on the Ghostbusters video. But yeah, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It really just kind of is music raw.…"

"…And on this display, we have the Doors debut album that's like, all we have on the display that and some Van Halen albums. So I took a moment to stop because it was so cool to just see that debut album. And then right next to it at the end of this small aisle, see the man himself. And I walk over. And, yeah, Robbie gave me a fist bump. That's something I've been avoiding doing with anybody during the pandemic.…"
