Meat Loaf, who tells us he is from Dallas, and 2 of his friends got stopped by a secret service agent on Stemmons freeway that wanted to go to Parkland

The Mickey Mantle bowling alley he referred to was located at Mockingbird and Harry Hines Blvd. So most likely, they would have gone south on Harry Hines Blvd. to reach Parkland. Depending on the traffic (and if he could change lanes and his car was the only one flagged down, it sounds like traffic was light), he could have made the trip in about 5 minutes. If the limo was unattended when he arrived it was probably between 12:45 and 1:00. So the timing checks out.

I didn’t think any Secret Service agents were deployed on the ground. I thought they all traveled with the motorcade.$100 Dollars in 1963 is equivalent to over $800 today.

Wonder who the senator from Illinois was.

Hey FI, good to see you pop in!

He really wasn't a full-on meatloaf at the time. Just a rissole*.

I'm no fan but a girlfriend wanted to go see him when he was touring. The concert sucked and our car got stolen.  


* An Aussie dish, similar to, but bigger than a meatball, and smaller than a meatloaf....

Wasn't a fan either but somehow had free tickets to a concert in about '79. Ended up two rows back from stage. Mesmerized the whole time by singer Karla DeVito's Betty Boop routine replete with revealing outfit. Meatloaf was there too.

Re the 'senator from Illinois', could this have been Democrat Paul Douglas - 'one of (Lyndon) Johnson's more vocal critics' according to Bobby Baker in 'Wheeling and Dealing: Confessions of a Capitol Hill Operator'? (https://www.econlib.org/archives/2013/01/great_moments_i_5.html)

Douglas was a natural JFK ally: strongly pro Civil Rights and key to getting Civil Rights legislation onto the statute books in 1957. There's an intriguing 2 Dec 1963 NY Times interview with Douglas headlined 'Douglas Critical of Dallas Police', but you need a subscription to read the full thing.

A further meander reveals that Douglas's wife, Dorothy, was questioned by HUAC in 1953 about alleged Communist sympathies. She pleaded the Fifth.

The other senator for Illinois was Everett Dirksen, a 'pragmatic Republican' who was also pro Civil Rights, despite being an ally of Joseph McCarthy. But then so was Bobby, so clearly no one's perfect.

No evidence that Douglas or Dirksen was in Dallas on the day, but it's not implausible.

As for Meatloaf, what a story. He would have been just sixteen at the time. Shame he ended up supporting Trump.
