Maria was Blondie's comeback hit at the time. Who can forget "One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch."

When Vince was around 16, he went to a concert in Perth, Western Australia where Roy Orbison opened for Bob Dylan. The audience didn't want Roy to leave at the end of his session and they had to just take him off and send Dylan on. The crowd settled down then and were just as enthusiastic about Dylan as they had been about Roy.

@RasmaSandra It was pretty special that he caught them in the one show. They were only just beginning their careers really.
