The Genesis Of Beat It by Mark R. Elsis

It was about 5 a.m. on Sunday, November 29, 1981, and I was standing near the back of the first-floor bar at the famous Manhattan after-hours club, AM-PM. Interestingly, I was at the same spot where, a few months earlier, I met and talked with John Belushi. I was standing by myself having a drink when someone walking into the club caught my eye. As he walked toward me, I perceived a radiant whitish aura around this young man. Intrigued, I stepped back a few steps to intercept his path.

I walked over to this special glass enclosed area, and as I slowly opened the door, directly to my left was the aura man. Just as I was about to give him a piece of my mind, he totally disarmed me by politely asking me to sit next to him. I did.
