"He jumped up onto my back and rode around on me, piggyback style, while he was singing and screaming into the microphone. I should have screamed along with him--it was my big chance--but I was overwhelmed by the moment. ...
"It's a moment I know I'll never forget, and one I'm able to relive often, because Eddie gave me a tape of the show right after it ended. I didn't have anything to play it on, so he gave me his Walkman, with his initials marked right on it.
"It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I'm not willing to settle for once. I've got to find a way to get back to that moment, if it's the last thing I do."
