Flashback Friday! William Topley


I'm not even sure how long ago this was taken. 10 years ago, maybe? Somewhere around there. It was the year that William Topley played at the Boulder Kinetics. My husband was still driving the Budweiser truck and they were sponsoring the event. I got to go back in the dressing rooms with some of the Bud employees, where I got to meet William Topley and get an autograph.

I realize that most of you have probably never heard of him, but for me, this was one of the most exciting moments of my life. William Topley! His voice makes me weak in the knees. While my musical tastes range from Bjork to Guns N' Roses, Fleetwood Mac to Godsmack, William Topley is always at the top of that list. I love him. I adore him. I listen to him almost daily. I spend the extra money to have his cds sent from England, because I can't wait until they are avaiable in the US. I am that obsessed. Every time he plays Colorado, I try to go. I am a groupie. Minus the sex. But that voice...oh, yeah. That voice. Hmmm...

Last time he played in Boulder, I was unable to go. I really am due for another fix. I think I'm going to go put him on now...

Some Delta Rain...

I am brand new to your blog, and love your writing! I just wanted to tell you that, and how fun it is to see the excitement on your face, which so matches your words.

Now...to go find out more about William Topely and maybe hear a track or two...

I'd never heard of him either! I looked him up and probably be downloading some tunes! My honey worked for his parents when they had a liquor store and we used to get cool tickets to events too. Miss those perks!

I don't know if I would have a smile like that if I were standing next to a naked Shakira! LOL!

Noelle said...

i went to youtube and listened to the song you linked to. i knew i was going to like it because we have some of the same musical preferences...

i really like that song...are they a band or is it just him with some help on that song?

they remind me of someone, i just can't put my finger on who...if i think of it, i'll let you know!

Christie O. said...

yeah, i don't know who he is either, but i do love Candlebox like that and no one knows who they are (anymore) either! great picture, and awesome you got to meet him!

Heidi said...

You are so cute! I have to admit that I am a loser and don't follow much music so I've never heard of him. I'll have to see if I can find a little sample of what he plays.
What a great and fun day to meet someone that you really and truly love their work!
Thanks so much for coming to visit me and If you'd like to stop by my blog I'm at Cake Crumbs.

Well, you are an adorable groupie.

ShellyInOz said...

Am just having a little blog fix before I go rustle up some dinner.

I hope you are feeling more chipper today. I could definitely relate to Thursday's post. Had a few of those days myself.

I like the idea of Flashback Friday. We all need a little trip down Memory Lane every now and then. I am going to go Google William Topley now.

Thanks for stopping by today.

kys said...

I've never heard of him.

Nezzy said...

This Ozarks farm chick has never heard of him, I need to check him out. Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I'm back from south Texas exhausted but hit the ground running 'cause I haven't started Christmas. It's a big thing around the Ponderosa with eight grandchildren and all expecting the perfect gift from their Grandma Muzzie. No pressure here!!!!

Have a beautifully blessed day! Gotta run..........

Angie Muresan said...

Must check out his music. I am ashamed to say that I don't know anything about him.

Deb Thaxton said...

-->Great Flashback Friday! I had never heard of him either but can tell in the picture that you're pretty darn excited!
