This year we have a mixed bag of entertainment at the Fond du Lac, WI fair which started Wednesday night...

Terri Clark
Joe Nichols
Alice Cooper
George Thorogood

There was just a unique story about Joe Nichols plight to get to our fair for last night. Joe left Nashville yesterday, got on plane #1 which on the way here, lost one of it’s engines. They turned around and returned to the Nashville Airport. They started off on plane #2 and got so far when the cabin lost compression so they turned back. Leaving Nashville on plane #3, they were re-routed to Detroit, Michigan. Joe missed his connecting flight and was stuck. They were able to rent a private jet and flew into the Fond du Lac, WI airport 10 minutes before showtime. Now that’s dedication to play at a small town fair! I guess he decided to stay in town tonight so he could meet and see Alice Cooper.

Anyone see Cooper? Was the show good? Who is at your fairs this year?

I saw Alice Cooper about a year ago. Good show, He did'nt eat any bats or anything, but it was pretty interesting to say the least, kinda theatrical.

Joe lives in Rogers, or at least he did, which is just a couple of miles from our shop in Springdale. We usually don't go out to see him in concert - if we want to see him, we go to his house. Much more personal that way. Of course, when he is in town, he will go out honky-tonking, and we usually run into him. Very personable young man, and I like his more recent music, too!

I like his music too. I met Joe in Oshkosh, WI at a Country USA outing. He was "no body" then and was on a back stage in a corner. I knew he had a good sound so I had pictures taken with him and got his autograph. Back then he had the real long hair. I would bet his recording label made him cut it to be more main stream. I met him twice more in Nashville at Fan Fair but his lines were pretty long... but he had made it to the main stage.

That's really cool that you know him...How long have you known him? What's his personal story? Married? Kids? What did he do for a living before music?

Alice Cooper was the only show I ever walked out on. Not that it was bad but he started at 8:00 and was still going at 12:15. Great show but I was wore out.

Wow, that says a lot about the entertainer that he is... It's not too often that the fans give out before the act. The guy must still have some zip!

So you are saying that I should bring my jammies and pillow to the show? :sleep: eek :sleep:

Joe has a daughter, but I don't know who is taking care of her now. I don't think he was married, but I could be wrong. I know he isn't now. His Mom, Robin, still comes out with us every now & again. I guess we've known him for about 10 - 11 years now, way before he was "anybody"! He used to come by the club I managed years ago and sing. I can't remember where he worked before - I think it was some kind of manufacturing plant, but I'm not sure.
