Melbourne late 1980s, I went to see him play. Afterwards I noticed a few people heading backstage. Why not follow? He clasped my hand and looked at me quizzically but all I asked for was his autograph on the programme. Of course later I realised he thought I might be some relation - as he had married and divorced an Australian some years before. Well perhaps he thought that. Anyway this autographed photo has hung on my walls ever since.
Here's Gabriel refusing to acknowledge there's a party going on around him. He kept his eyes shut for about 30 minutes. Anthony had to move him from one activity to another. The children here are involved in a block building competition. They also had a sack race, pass the parcel, spoon and marshmallow race, musical chairs, statues and a pinata.
