It was December 12, 2010 when I was at the Melbourne Tullamarine Airport, waiting for my turn to check-in my baggage before this picture was taken. I couldn't believe my eye! I left my queue, rushed to meet him and asked to get a picture with this Australian guitar maestro, Tommy Emmanuel.
He was really friendly & kind. He spent time to talk & greet me, even though he was waiting for check-in baggage. A great musician with a great heart! Not to mention that he is really tall!
In 2009, I had the opportunity to watch his guitar recital at the Arts Centre Melbourne. He gave a full 3-hours concert without interval. Apparently he did not keep the time :)
I hope someday he will give another concert in Melbourne. I'm definitely going to see it again!
