    In 1983 "Puttin' on the Ritz" was leading the Austrian charts for many weeks. So I booked Taco for a disco tour, which was an awesome roller coaster ride ;-) Since then the "Taco's" and the "Roco's" are very close friends!

    http://discovercottonbay.co...
    ASSISTANT MANAGER & CHEF DE RECEPTION
    The club was then the most exclusive address of the Bahamas!
    Guests and/or members were British royalties as well as the high society of the USA: Governors, congressmen, senators, Admiral Nimitz, Mrs. Johnson (Johnson & Johnson), a former head of the C.I.A., Mr. McNeill (Libby's Factories), Robert Trent Jones (world famous golf course designer), Davis Love II (his son Davis Love III is one of the best golf pros today) and many others!
    Founder and president of the club was Juan Trippe (founder of Pan American Airways - movie 'Aviator'), besides president of Intercontinental Hotels too!
    Although I was working up to 18 hours per day, I had the feeling to be in paradise. Above all I did not miss deep sea & shark fishing, catamaran sailing, reef diving, surfing or 'tough' (cement courts) tennis matches with club members!

    Originally I wanted to go to South Africa, but a friend warned me who was already there. So I decided to distress Switzerland. At the Casino Montreux I watched a phantastic concert of Jethro Tull!

    After my return from England I decided to stay in hotel business. As my mother knew the general manager of a hotel chain very well, it was no problem to get a job! In the three months as a barkeeper I was not a single day sober :)
