Here is my account of finally meeting my HERO of 20 plus years. I have met David several times since then, (always an experience NOT to be forgotten!) but ya know what they say about the FIRST TIME!

 

It happened in July of 1987 after the Monkees' Dallas concert.


 

My sister and I had seats near the front and after the show we saw people with backstage passes going through a gate which led to back where the tour buses were.

My sister noticed a hole in the fence up near the stage, and told me that it was now or never time....
Either I sneak through that hole or forget my life long wish of meeting David.

Easy choice.

I squeezed through the fence, ripping my dress and getting mud all over my sandals in the process.
Undetected, I fell right in line with the others going into the tour bus.

Peter greeted us at the door. I saw Micky joking with someone in the corner. I saw Anita and the kids sitting next to the wall. But no David at first.

I panicked that I would have to leave before I found him, but at about that same moment I heard his voice and looked up to see him talking to someone about the sound system.

He was wearing the same hot pink tank top that he had been wearing on stage at the show's end.

I almost froze, but finally managed to touch his arm and say, "Hi. I'm Celine Buford and I have been wanting to meet you for the last 20 years."
"I just snuck through a hole in the fence, ripped my dress, blah blah blah to meet you."

He said it was nice to meet me.

Then I asked, "Would you please do me a favor?", to which he replied, "Sure."

I shyly asked, "Would you please give me a hug?"

His response was to put both arms around me and hug me tightly to his chest.
I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
I could hardly talk when he let go .
All I could say was,

"Thank you! Thank you SOOO much!"

I was trembling and shaking like crazy and David said,
"No, thank YOU sweetheart!"

I will never forget that moment in my whole entire life.

Thanks, David!
