Hello ! I am The Tax Deadline Kid on the Cozy Powell Website. Good to be here. I met Cozy in '84 during the Whitesnake Tour in Northern California. My buddy, who was responsible for musically introducing me to Cozy in 1980, was along side. We were at a Jack-in-the Box next to the Colliseum having lunch before the show and up walks Cozy and John Sykes into the restuarant. We were facing the outside view and chuckled; "Check out these guys, one thinks he's Cozy Powell ! " I quickly jumped out of my chair and said " HOLY S#*T ! It is Cozy Powell !!!! " I ran to the car to get a pen and a cardboard WHITESNAKE logo that I had in there ( for what reason-no idea-was not going to take it into the venue ) and asked Cozy for an autograph and if they didn't mind if we sat and ate with them ( trust me-John Sykes was pretty much kicked to the curb by now ! ) We spoke and Cozy enjoyed his milk & salad. My buddy couldn't get a word out-if I'd had been more aggresssive, I may have invited ourselves to their rooms since it was Coverdale's Bday as well- darn ! Oh well. I ended up giving that Cozy autographed Whitesnake logo to my buddy- since he was the guy who got it all started for me. He later passed it on to his cousin who did the same ( told him about the greatness that was Cozy Powell ) Cool, Right ? The Best of Cozy Powell cd never exits my rotation in my car, I still look for Cozy stuff on ebay,...as a matter of fact, I just rec'd a very cool Cozy Powell Over The Top designed shirt from Bulgaria ! I'll try to post a pic of it here . Cheers !
