When I Met Mick in Milan at the Principe de Savoy

Recommended View: 'When I Met Mick' LARGE On Black


I really blew out this HDR and I love it. But man, even in default mode, this place is bright and shiny. This is the bar of the Pricipe di Savoy hotel in Milan, Italy.


I came here to have a meeting with a friend, and I found out that is where the Rolling Stones are staying for their concert that night. I was first tipped off by the aging and drugged-out hippies that were standing outside the security gates peeking around for a view of any of these octogenarians. While I was inside, I was waiting around the lobby and all the sudden Mick Jagger came out of the elevator. There was a super-tall brunette with him (is that Jerry Hall? Are they still together? Did she dye her hair?). Oh where's my camera? Dang it's in my bag over there... no time.. must decide...


Anyway, I walked right up to him when he came out and held out my hand.


He looked at me and shook my hand and said, “Hi, I’m Mick.”


I smiled because I thought it was funny that he introduced himself first and I said, “Hi, I’m Trey. I thought you were dead!”


He laughed and said something COMPLETELY unintelligble in British, and walked off with his bodyguards, all of whom were now eying me with a high degree of suspicion.
