That's great, but where is your video of Charlie Rich singing I'm Coming Home?
Well.... I don't have one, he was dead .
I did see Charlie Rich in Memphis back in 1984, he was in the audience at the Carl Perkins show. The MC called him on stage after Carl had finished his show.
He got on the piano and played a short 'Lonely Weekends'.
As he left the stage he came down and walked to the bar where I was standing, he squeezed by me smiling and put his hand on my shoulder. He then sat about 5 feet from me.
At that time I knew zero about him other than he was known as 'The Silver Fox, in fact that's how he was introduced by the MC. I have no photograph, autograph or anything, and yes, it's a big regret.
Charlie Rich Jnr was on that show at the Shell with Carl Mann too, and he sure sounded like his father.
Here are my photos of Charlie's watch and Deputy Sheriffs badge though.
