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.
