One night in the 1970's, Alex Kotsos, the bartender at The Astor on St. Catherine Street in Montreal, handed Cliff a message an anonymous patron had written on a small cocktail napkin.
Silent and apparently depressed, the man had been drinking at the bar and listening to Cliff sing.
He handed the cocktail napkin to Alex and asked him to give it to the piano player, and he left.
I still have that cocktail napkin.
The man wrote -
" Maybe without knowing,
You saved a life."
