I met the Captain (Daryl Dragon) and Toni Tennille at the airport in Los Angeles as well. In this case, I did get them all the way down to the hall just outside of the baggage area before taking the picture. It was a matter of respect for their privacy while still being kind to their fans.
On the way down to the baggage area I did mention to Toni and Daryl that my high school senior class used their song, “Love Will Keep Us Together” as song of the senior class. I told them even though I know they didn’t write it, it turned out much better than if Neil Sedaka released it originally (Neil wrote the song). I’m sure that’s what brought such a big smile to her face. They may remember the incident, they may not. But I did capture it quickly back then.
