While headbanging I looked over and Hawk from The Road Warriors was headbanging next to me. I went to Record and Tape Traders and found the album the next day and became their biggest fan for like a year. Never saw them again but everyone wanted to play Hammerjacks back in the day so we got so many great shows.
My friend Jill worked there for years and has hundreds of pics with bands and my favorite is Rob Halford just standing at the bar ordering a drink with no one even recognizing him. Classic!
