I had thought about that, but being it's the only one I know of and with Nicolette, Stevie Ray and George not being with us anymore, I'd hate to chance it being "lost" along the way.
I was at the Niagara Falls show on Saturday, but not knowing the lay of the land there or I would have at least attempted a backstage "excursion" Smiley

Many good memories of FarmAid, still have my passes, a couple t-shirts and of course the ball cap.

Thanks for the reply!

It was a great show! Thoroughly enjoyed it even if the seating was awkward. More of a convention arrangement than a concert venue.  Sadly no encore, but understandable given John being under the weather!

I was part of the electrical crew that helped put together the FarmAid II concert at Manor Downs in 1986. I have a ball cap I wanted John to autograph, unfortunately, John had apparently left the venue before I could get him to sign it.

Notable signatures:
Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Emmylou Harris, Nicolette Larson, George Jones, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, William Lee Golden, John Schneider, Mickey Raphael,
Mark Miller, David and Howard Bellamy...

It would be great if I could finally get John's signature since he was right along side with Willie and Neil in putting this thing together...a great cause for American farmers!
