Fine Young Cannibals

When: March 2, 1986

Where: Kyoto Hotel, San Francisco

And: The first time I met Fine Young Cannibals (aka FYC), they were a young band on their first tour. I had liked their music ever since I heard “Johnny Come Home,” so of course wanted to meet the guys. Lead singer Roland Gift was quite nice, but David Steele and Andy Cox — whose work in the (English) Beat I had loved — proved to be, shall we say, a little less enthusiastic. Still, they signed my album cover and posed for a couple photos for me and one other small group of kids who had tracked them down.
