Went to the concert and saw Beau Bridges. When I saw Beau I thought I knew him from Birmingham, Alabama, but couldn´t place him. I kept bugging him about ´where do I know you from´ and finally he said ´I´m Beau Bridges´, I was so embarrassed, but he just laughed and we watched the concert together. Nobody knew who he was and I started telling everyone close to me that he was an American movie star, The word must have spread like a ´blitzkrieg´ and they were all clamoring for his autograph. I told him, I had seen all of his movies and he just looked kind of funny at me. I was thinking of Jeff Bridges. So crazy. Anyway we just jump up and down to the music of Paul Simon and he was just a regular guy. After the concert we parted ways when he said he was going backstage to talk to Paul. My only brush with stardom. I wonder to this day if he remembers that. Anyway I´ve always respected him for being a regular guy not arrogant like I thought at that young age that movie stars were. Paul performed an amazing concert with the ´Graceland touch´. The Germans were crazy about him and Beau, even though they didn´t know who Beau Bridges was. I could tell Beau was loving the attention he was getting after I told everyone around me ´He´s and AMERICAN MOVIE STAR! I don´t think he had ever had so much attention even in America at that time in his career.
