For this concert, I went with my sister and younger brother who plays guitar and is quite talented. He was only about 12 or 13 at the time. We did the same thing - waited after the concert for the limo to come out. This time, followed the limo and ended up in Georgetown (a nice neighborhood in DC) (I was sure of the location this time). I was 17 at the time. We waited outside a restaurant and were told by the limo driver that the only member of the group in there was Roger. So, my brother and I braved the cold air until the limo driver asked us if we wanted to sit in Roger's limo to keep warm. Our toes were getting frost bitten, so that is what we did. It was embarrassing when Roger emerged from the restaurant and we had to get out of the limo so he could get inside. He must have thought we were pretty obnoxious for doing it but it really was a matter of survival in those cold temps. Anyway, he didn't smile at us. I asked for his autograph and he said "Sure" or something and I think I said something like "We really enjoyed the concert." And I think he said something like "Good" or "Thanks" - I can't remember. He seemed very tired.
