Here just a short overview how i became fan of Miss Ross...
I remember when i got my very first Diana Ross Record LP’ ( the good ole time ) which was Diana & Marvin as a gift from my Aunt, it hits me right on my head and i was just blewn away. Since that time i called myself as a fan . I blame it on my Aunt :-)
Here just a little Story,i remember when my Uncle and Aun’t had to leave Germany to go back to Colorado Springs, CO (my Uncle was at that time in the Military around the early ‘ 80 based in Colorado Springs ) My Aun’t called me one Night to tell me that Miss Ross is performing in Denver or COS (Colorado Springs ) she asked me to come over to join them to go to the Concert ....well i was to young to fly all by myself ( my parents decission ...anyway, time went by my Aunt and Uncle went to the Concert and right after the concert my aunt called me in the middle of the Night to tell me how the performance was and that you were able to smell Miss Ross from off Stage ....i was so jalous and almost hated them because of telling me that ...i wish i was there ....it was so funny because they were trying to tell me all the little details of that night ...see its not only me in that family who were affected by the DR Syndrome
My very first concert was in ‘80 or ‘81 , my parents drove me all the way to Frankfurt and Munich to see Miss Ross since i was still young not able to drive on my own ( i was only 2 when..) ..thanks god for my parents , they brought me to the Concert and waited til the very end of the Concert . I think they almost went nuts because of driving me back and forth to the Concerts.
Well what can i say , time went by so quickly looking back to the ’80 which still seems to be yesterday , beein a Die Hard Fan for such a long time ( I wouldn't change a thing..)
So let me tell you about my favorite Diana Songs ( Miss Ross asked me in 2008 on a flight to Manchester “ what are your favorite Songs “ My answer was ...well there are so many songs to mention , i love almost all of them , too many to mention them right out of my head !
But my very very favorite is whatever reason “Take me higher” , whenever i hear that song i have to move “ Wonder why ?! i dont know , this song just goes in and makes me move of yourse i love the early days “ Supremes Medly “ who doesn’t love them. I personally love the RCA years much as well as the later and earlier Songs. RCA was a special period in my personal life , so lot of these songs have a special meaning to me. As Miss Ross always confirmes, there ups and downs but there is always a light by the end of a tunnel , these Songs are lifting me up.
I remember in ‘ 82 right after Central Park ( which was not broadcasted LIVE in Germany , i went to club called “ Airport “ they had a big Airplane inside the Club very cool thing , anyway inside that Aircraft they had a real compartement like in coach class with seats and Aisle and TV Monitors on the Ceiling, cool done , when i got there the Club was totally packed, crowded.
So after a while i heard thru an loudspeaker something like “ If you need me , call me ....and it came right into my head this must be Miss Ross , whitin seconds the Dancefloor and club was almost empty so everyone tried to crap a seat in that Aircraft and they all watched Miss Ross in Central Park ..they almost went wild when they saw the Rain coming down ....and i thought to myself Miss Ross you are just great , no words to descripe that moment i felt when i saw all those peoples around me “ hearing them ...woow how can she do do that with all that Rain ...others said hopefully she didnt get sick from all the rain ...and i just thought , Miss Ross you better leave the stage and go home ...before you get an electrical impact.
I had so much fun during the Tours since the early ‘ 80 with other fans .....thinking of Australia , South Africa and of course my close friends in the USA and Europe .
Oslo 2008 , Miss Ross came over and called me to the Edge of the Stage , she gave me the microphone to sing with her to “Reach out and Touch “ ...it was not showing on that Video or TV ( maybe it was better not to see this part on TV
Orange County December 2008, Miss Ross came over to me and called to the Stage , she bend over the Stage and she huged me lots .
See the picture here.....
Carcassone , France 2008 ...she called me up the Stage , she pulled me up while the Security Guys tried to keep me down, but Miss Ross was stronger
Our Flight from London to Manchester .. we had so much fun with Miss Ross ...just say “ TEA “ ...Ruth “ ...
My Flight from Dublin to London Miss Ross in the Lavatory ........and signing the boarding pass for me .
Frankfurt 1993 , while doin her final song “ Best Years “ she came over to the side i was seated and gave me the Microphone and said “Sing for me , well i sung and she said You have to learn to sing louder “.....Miss Ross can i get some singing lessons ? While singing for Miss Ross she signed the book “ Secret of a Sparrow !
To mention some here, not in a preference :
Ruth , Helen , Judy - Anne , Jim (NL) , Franz, Albert , Michael (DE), Cilomar , Bernard , Steve (UK) , Gregg , Gene ...so many to mention here but you know who i mean , most important Albert T. a great and special friend !!
...so you see there is always something to tell , all these little moments makes it so special and I am very proud to be a Fan of Miss Diana Ross . Three words to Miss Ross “ I LOVE YOU “
My mom for your love and support , she ‘s travelling with me quite often....
My friends are always asking me , isnt that boring to see all the show of Miss Ross and i say :
NO ..since Miss Ross is so special, always something special !
What makes her so special :
Even as a Diva , a Superstar she’s still down to earth , and lovely ......
If i had 10 minutes to talk with Miss Ross , what i love to tell or ask her ....:
To be honest , i dont know ....yes there is one thing i would love to ask , even if this might sound as a criticism , i would say please change a part of your show , bring back the older songs and also the RCA years songs back . Please dont get this as criticism against Miss Ross but if she would ask me , a little change to the Show is always good. A clearification about the new CD ( as of today) rumours going around since month and no final answer. Is she recording a new Album or are there any plans for, is there a new Movie in process , since the last one of ABC is still due ....will there be another Tour soon ....
My Goal and Miss Ross :
Invite Miss Ross for tea ... no i am just kidding , but you never know ....Go for your dream *smile*.....
A Cool thing :
While shopping in West Hollywood coming straight from the Airport i saw Miss Ross shopping at a Store , this was the Day before Miss Ross left for Oslo , she got out of the Car and went into a Shop on Sunset Blvd , due to heavy traffic i werent able to stop and had a closer look this was totaly surprising to me, seeing Miss Ross in a car . We all know the pictures from TMZ and the gossip sources ...but this was real.
When the car got a little closer , i just saw hairs inside the car due to dark windows , and i just said , well it looks like Miss Ross .... well there she was , next to our car in that black car , dont know which brand it was , since i am not familiar with cars and brands , but this was the black Car which we all have seen before on TMZ and other Sources .
But i never thought i would ever see Miss Ross in a car ....never ever..as you can see , she might pass your way!
This was just a little bit of my story how i became a fan and how i grew up with Miss Ross.
