intertwoven I'm glad you started this thread!
I've been meaning to do so but forgot about it.

Do you still have that email you posted on xiola about "the guy in the gold suit running around filming this show"?

If you still have it can you post it?

If not let me know and I'll look through my records and see if I saved it.

ha, i forgot about that. but yeah, i was able to find the emails just now..
By any chance do you have any idea how I can get my hands on a Video of the Halloween Party at the Cornels house, in 90-91 I think, I can't remember? I know it was being taped, these guys in gold body suits were running around taping it.

Thanks!!
Now that I recall, it was actually the kick off for the ritual tour and in Beverly Hills at the Cornels house and the peppers played, it was invite only and was a costume party. That is why I was confused with it being Halloween. I think it was 1990 - I am really not sure as it was a long time ago. I think I still have the invite some place, I will look for it and scan it for you if I find it. In any event, that was the most fun party I had ever been to in my life and all these years later it would be fun to see it.
I never heard back about the scan, but I'll try emailing again and check to see if it turned up.

Awesome that you still have those and I hope you can get a scan of that invite.

I can't remember who found these first or who took them but here's our gold suited dude in action:

I have more pics that I can post later but hydro posted some of them here:

I never in a million years thought we'd nail this one but I was looking around on Dave's facebook and there it was.

I still can't believe I found that invite this morning.
When I saw it I did a serious double take.
I just never thought we'd get a firm date for this show!.
Thank goodness people save stuff like this and are nice enough to share it with everybody. :cool:
