In August of 1988 I was in Uniondale for two shows back to back. The 2nd show (Sunday) I was 12 rows back and midway between Rachel and David. I had the perfect seat for their harmonization of Comfortably Numb. I remember that like it was yesterday. She was an incredibly beautiful woman who could easily win the heart and favor of any mortal man alive. She had her choice and she also had a promising and budding career. So, what happened? Some speculate a romance between her and David. And and ensuing falling that caused her to drop out of stardom shortly after this video was shot in the early 1990s:
So let's conduct a little realistic conjecture. According to this recent video, she had no intimate relationship with David, despite the connotations left by the "blown kiss" on the originally released DSOT footage for the song 'Money." This recent interview with Scott, Duraga and Machan reveals that the actual touring performers who lived and worked with her for 14 months know the truth. Watch this interesting piece:
So what assumptions can we make? Well for starters, unless one chooses to move to Antarctica, Northern Saskatchewan or some other completely remote stretch of real estate ... it is rather hard to completely disappear. Unless, of course, someone wants you to disappear and has the dastardly means to make it happen. So I brought this up in a reply to the above video. The author who conducted the interview would like to, along with the multitude of Floyd and Fury fans, believe that she is happily living a private secret life in her little hobbit home in northern England in a small little farming community where no one ever had a TV, A VCR, A DVD player, a smartphone, internet or any modern convenience. Apparently any and all animal rights activists groups up there have no access to any kind of social media portholes either. Up there, she lives on in peace.
More than likely, this is just as big a pipe dream as the one we all had in 1989 about dating her. The facts of society and life on Earth state that this is not the truth. The truth of the matter is that no one even remotely famous can move around this planet without someone else snapping a picture. If she were still alive, she would have been captured on film by now. Especially post 2005 when nearly every sentinel being on the planet began equipping themselves with powerful handheld computers that can also make phone calls and take high resolution photographs and videos. She'd have to be a born again CIA or MI6 agent in order to avoid the world for this long. If she were alive, she'd be inclined, I'm sure, at this point to write and publish her memories of her time in the entertainment business. Today, her book would be an Amazon best seller, her official Facebook and Instagram pages would have millions of followers and she'd probably reconnecting with old friends in a group interview like posted above.
Draw your own conclusions but I know where the safe bet is for my money.
No one famous just drops off the face of the Earth, never to be seen or heard from again .... except for Rachel Fury ... and Jimmy Hoffa.
