Yesterday I met a man named Aidan that was telling us about the year he got to work with Cheap Trick. It was about 4 or 5 years ago. This one particular occasion, Aidan had his son with him, who was 7 at the time. The bands and crew were all having their catered dinner before the show. Rick Nielsen decided to make faces at the boy. The boy made faces back. Rick makes another face. The boy grabs a handful of spaghetti and pelts it directly at Rick. Aidan, mortified, approaches Rick and offers him anything. To clean his shirt, a new shirt all together, a kidney, etc. Rick says "Are you kidding? I'm going on just the way I am!"

What a guy!

A much better reaction then when a friend of mine accidently spilled a drink on Jon Bon Jovi's wife's coat. Apparently Jon wasn't too pleased and it took Richie Sambora in the role of peacemaker to smooth things over.

Viva La Rick!
