My sister, Gloria Royal, and I were planning to go to a Nearly Human tour concert in New York City. Since it coincided with my sister's business meeting she booked a room at
an architecturally cool hotel in the city the Royalton. Gloria even
joked that Todd might stay there. Yeah, right. I arrived in New York
a few hours before my sister, went to the hotel and waited.
As I sat in the waiting room, I couldn't believe my eyes but in walks Todd
with a few other people, maybe Eric Gardner. I went over not knowing what
to say, shook his hand and spurted out "I'll be there tonight, Todd."
Todd's reply? Of course. "Yeah, so will I."
That night we talked a little bit with Lyle Workman and some of the
singers. They invited us up to a party, but we declined.
