Flashback Weekend returns August 5-7 to Rosemont, IL. Aa always, I will be "On the Beat" meeting celebrities and all sorts of interesting folks.
Last year, Meatloaf was one of the highlights. More specifically, meeting Meatloaf with show owner/promoter Mia and my pal Cuzz was the highlight.
Meatloaf could not have been any nicer. When talking to him, Mia and Cuzz recalled singing Meatloaf's songs back in the day. That led Meatloaf to ask for a sampling. With a little prodding, Mia and Cuzz had an impromptu acoustic session in tribute. They were quite good and Meatloaf seemed to genuinely appreciate it.
Moments like that become lifelong memories. While I was not part of the unplanned karaoke session, I was right there in the mix. To be part of that with the guy who had some monster hits in my youth was surreal.
That's just one example of the fun I have had at Flashback Weekend over the years. While I can't promise a similar situation for any attendee, I can guarantee you will have a great time.
This year the guest list is headlined by Robert Englund. There are plenty of other great celebrities joining the horror legend. For a complete list of celebrity guests and all other info, go to FlashbackWeekend.com.
