    I always say something stupid when I meet The Fixx. One time I met Gary in a hotel as we were both looking for our rooms. I heard girls' voices in a nearby room, and I asked, "Are those girls with you?" I thought maybe he was traveling with family. It must have sounded like "Are those groupies with you?"

    the moment when I yelled up to Jamie..

    "JAMIE!!"

    ..as he was putting his guitar down after the encore..

    ..he looked down, I yelled..

    "THE PICK!!"

    he said..

    "what?" and put his hand to his ear, the crowd was still goin' nuts and he couldnt hear me

    I yelled again..

    "THE PICK!!!!"

    .. he said..

    "oh", and smiled kinda like a little kid who was all to happy to share one of his twinkies

    and then..

    ..he handed it to me

    It was like being given a peice of history, like a peice of the Berlin Wall or sumthin'

    Its right on my desk, a purple Tortex, screwed securely away inside a brass apple

    you can knock me down and steal my car
    take my pennies from the ole fruit jar
    you can even have my wife
    do anything that ya wanna do
    but dont touch my brass apple, dont even think about it

    thanks

    shes learned how to accept my humour, and obsessions, and I for my part have learned how to get yelled at, it works well here!

    Great topic! Let's see, it was in the summer of 1984 and the Fixx were opening for Mister Mister at Darien Lake. For the life of me they made quite an impression on me and my sister that the two of us can't even remember Mister Mister playing that night! Cy was doing his hand gestures and the energy from the rest of the band was amazing. They put on quite a show.

    In the last couple of years I have seen them many times and they never disappoint, that energy is still there. I have met and talked to them after the shows and they are such a great group of guys, never too busy for their fans.

    Talking

    living on canada's east coast did not allow much opportunity to ever see the band live...however, in '91 @ 21 yrs old my opportunity had finally arrived when they played montreal. i drove the 11 hours to see the show and i remember the t-shirt guy from florida had no idea where on the planet he was and was completely surprised that i drove that far to see them...but he was a bum anyway. but i did buy 2 t-shirts from him and 5 more from a guy on the street who gave me a great deal...i gave them to friends back home.

    well, the show simply blew me away and i managed to get 2 questions out of Cy (i was a slighty buzzing from the beer but more so overwhelmed at his presence). one question was "what are some of your favorite songs you have written?" his reply "Opinions and Phantom Living." surprised the hell out of me.

    another great memory was '97 when they played to a packed Lee's Palace in Toronto and after their encores i jumped onto the stage and got the crowd chanting and screaming for more, the boys graced us with a another encore as i bowed to them as they come back on stage...afterwards Cy and I had a fanastic chat about a screenplay he had been working on and the differences between american and european culture.a brilliant night

    finally, last year my band was fortunate enough to open for the guys when they visited toronto...now that was a dream come true...i want to do it again!

    Opinions... That has got to be my one of my most favorite Fixx songs as well .. there is so much emotion in that song ... would love to hear the story behind it ...as well as Phantoms ,, but I have my own interpretations.. would love to know how close I am to the real message Cy was trying to convey...

    embarrassed

    My most embarrasing moment concerning the Fixx would be in the same time period of my most wonderful memory ... As I said before, I was quite shy back then .. Fortunatley(or perhaps that is UNfortunatly) My friends were not .. especially my friend, Amy ... after the show in Vancouver BC, she just hopped in line( with me,stunned, in tow) and boarded the Fixx's tour bus ... she had a burning question for Adam .. convinced that when she had meet him at a signing in Bellevue, Washington, he had given her mono when he had kissed her ... I just about died when she asked him for a medical report.....thankfully, he burst out laughing... and denied that he had given her a communable diesease... we were promptly escorted off the bus ( with good reason) after that ...

    Thanks for sharing, Jeanne. I didn't want to be the only one with an embarrassing moment. They can be hard to confess, but make for good stories.

    I think that my greatest moment was bringing my wife to a show and having her see first hand what an awesome band the Fixx are. She agreed, and now she has no problem listening to them when I put on their music.

    In addition, it was thrilling for both of us to meet them, snap some photos and get their autographs. I can't tell you what a thrill it was for me to have Cy autograph the lyrics to the song "Happy Landings" too.

    These are moments that I will never forget!

    Take care,

    My favorite Fixx memory is when I snuck into their dressing room after a gig in 1998. I was all pumped up at the end of the show & couldn't wait for them to return, so I went upstairs, saw a door marked "The Fixx" & went inside. Sure enough, they were in there eating dinner. I apologized for interrupting & thanked them for bringing such great music into my life. I sat down next to Cy & they signed autographs. I remember Adam leaning back, his face beaming.

    I was only inside a few minutes, but a waitress spotted me leaving & asked me to exit down a different staircase. Waiting for me there was a bouncer & he was PISSED!! He laid into me (can't say I blame him; that's his job) & then threw me out of the club. It was rude of me to intrude on the band's privacy, but I was caught up in my own "Beatlemania" moment. Now, everytime I look at the autographed photo layout in my RTB CD booklet, I'm reminded of what a bad boy I was!
