The only person I've kinda met if Muhammed Suicmez after the first Summer Slaughter. Got my picture taken with him.

I did say hi to Shane Embury and Barney Greenway of Napalm Death after their show. :D

My friend invited Erik Rutan to a strip club. :lol:

OH I almost forgot, met the vocalist of Warbringer. :)

It was on that terrible JFAC tour. Fortunately for us, we got to see Hate Eternal (me for the 2nd time!) about 3 days before they dropped off the tour.

And, and if you know the local bands, I've met Stevie from Hammerlord/The Esoteric. He's super nice too.

This is probably still missing stuff. I did my best to recall everything.

-Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden)
-Jon Oliva (Savatage, JOP)
-Zak Stevens (Savatage, CIIC)
-Firewind (Gus G, Bob Katsionis, Mark Cross, and Henning Basse, the singer from Metalium who filled in for the North American '07 tour)
-Bobby Jarzombek (Drummer for Riot, Halford, Rob Rock, and about 20 other projects)
-Saxon (Current line up except for Paul Quinn)
-Tesla (Whole line up at least once, including Tommy Skeoch twice)
-Chris Caffery (Savatage, TSO)
-Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater)
-Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater)
-Jeff Plate (Savatage, TSO, Metal Church)
-Mike lepond (Symphony X)
-Edguy (whole band at least once, some up to three times)
-Mike Wilton (Queensryche)
-Scott Rockenfield (Queensryche)
-Vinnie Appice (Dio, Black Sabbath)
-Joe lynn Turner (Solo, Rainbow, Brazen Abbot)
-Oscar Dronjak (Hammerfall)
-Magnus Rosen (ex-Hammerfall)

-Metal Church ('07 line up)
-Manticora
-Jon Oliva's Pain
-Circle II Circle
-Patrick Johansson (Yngwie Malmsteen, ex-WASP)

Oh, and a somewhat amusing footnote:
I actually met Chris Collins, the original singer for Dream Theater a few months ago. He was their first frontman, back under the name Majesty. He recorded some demos and did some shows before eventually being replaced by Charlie Dominici.

I've met and chatted with all of Cynic and got pictures with them. I'm not even trying to kiss ass but Paul is probably the single nicest human being I've ever met.

I chatted with Brann Dailor of Mastodon and I got all of the band to sign my poster and got pictures with everyone but Brent.

I've gotten autographs from Jack Owen, Ralph Santolla, Glen Benton (he was actually pretty nice:eek:).

I'v never actually met him but I did get to chat with Nicko for a couple of minutes on the phone when he was doing an interview on Rockline radio show. That was one of the highlights of my life. Absolutely world class guy.:party:

I think that's about it.

This is probably still missing stuff. I did my best to recall everything.
-Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden)
-Edguy (whole band at least once, some up to three times)
-Vinnie Appice (Dio, Black Sabbath)

Lee Dorrian (Cathedral)
Tom Fischer, Martin Eric Ain & Franco Sesa (Celtic Frost)
Sharon Den Adel (Within Temptation)
Cristina Scabbia & Andrea Ferro (Lacuna Coil)
Daniel Adair & Ryan Peake (Nickelback)
Tony McAlpine
Billy Sheehan
John Corabi
Bruce Kulick
Stacey Blades (L.A. Guns)

All for interviews, not counting the ones I did on the phone, obviously. I hate when people use the term "met" for getting autographs or grabbing photos etc. When you bump into one of them in a bar and have a chat, you met them. When you just stalked them outside the venue and barely exchanged any words, you didn't.

That must have a douchebag interview.

Actually, barring Lee Dorrian, it was the best one I ever did face to face. Tom was definitely pulling the whole disinterested-miserable-bastard bit to begin with, but once I showed him I knew some shit and got him a little worked up, he was great.

Franco the same. Eric is NOTHING like you'd imagine a member of Celtic Frost. Very jolly chap. Great fun.

Exactly what did you ask Tom that got him "worked up?"

Finances got him going a bit, then talking about influences. Not his, but his on other bands.

You can't quite get the emotion from just reading it, but:

“If I tell you some of my influences you will never see the music of Celtic Frost in them. If I tell you I used to listen to David Bowie and Roxy Music as a kid, and maybe a little bit of Black Sabbath, that doesn’t make the sound of Celtic Frost. But it’s the aura, the approach and the chemistry, the magic that has inspired me, and I think it’s probably the same with these bands. Opeth is a good example. I’ve talked to Mikael of Opeth at length at the Wacken festival, and he told me a million times “you’re an influence”, and I just said “that cannot be, you’re like a genius musician, I’m not. I’m exactly the opposite”. And he told me it was the vibe and the ideas that inspired him, and the approach of Celtic Frost. As a matter of fact, if a band sounds exactly like Celtic Frost and they say we’re an influence, that’s not true, because they’ve just copied us. Inspiration and influence is something that on top of that gives you the energy to create your own thing. It gives you the fire and the adrenaline, that’s an inspiration. A lot of people mistake copying for an influence. It’s not the same thing.”

If I had to pick the most interesting experience ever, I would have to go with eating at a Yonkers, NY diner with Manticora at 3:30am. Definitely something I never thought I'd ever get to say I did.
Meeting Jon Oliva was probably one of the happiest moments of my life as well.

I've met lots of musicians and said things like "great show" or "mind if I get a picture" (actually just Mikael Akerfeldt on that one). But I've had good conversations with members of lots of smaller-scale bands, CJ Boyd, Men As Trees, Romance of Young Tigers, and of course Kenoma immediately spring to mind, as well as with Brann Dailor from Mastodon with whom I talked Genesis with for some time (the singer/guitarist of Priestess was also a part of that discussion) and Tommy Rogers from Between the Buried and Me who shared my distaste that they were only permitted two songs on the Prog Nation tour. Then he said they'd be back headlining, which was a lie.

Oh yeah, Biff from Saxon was a riot. We were invited to the Hard Rock Cafe a block from BB Kings after the show, and I was having him do an ID for my radio show, and in the middle of me explaining it to him, he interrupts me and goes: "look, I've been doing this since before you were born, I know what the fuck I'm doing!", in a completely joking manner, of course. It led to me getting what has been by far the most personal ID yet for the show. Biff is such a great guy. He's like if your wise awesome grandfather was badass and metal.

I've met lots of musicians and said things like "great show"

I've done this once, because I think it's lame, frankly. It was Rob Dukes (Exodus), in Oslo, Norway last year. We were sitting out the back of the bar drinking and the band had to take their gear through there out to the truck. Every time Gary or Lee or whoever else went through they were just going about their business, but Rob was constantly looking for people to acknowledge him, so I shook his hand as he went past.

Yeah, Karl is a very nice guy. I met him at Ozzfest and he was more than happy to just talk and and hang out, and of course sign some things.

Maybe the people who say he is a douche are just seeing him on a bad day, he was great when I met him.

EDIT: I fucking forgot! When my friend and I were talking to Corpsegrinder about World Of Warcraft (that conversation made me laugh) this kid that looked mentally challenge walked up to the bus with a huge fucking sword and had the band sign it! That is the most metal thing to get signed in existence. I am jealous of that little retard boy.

I met all of the members of Giant Squid (and two-thirds of Grayceon) last August. All of them were incredible people - down to earth and really personable...some of the coolest folks ever. When I told their drummer Chris Lyman that I was a big fan of all things oceanic and even wanted to be a marine biologist when I was a kid (he works at the Aquarium at the Bay with the band's co-founder, Aaron Gregory), he gave me his business card and told me he'd give me a behind-the-scenes tour of the aquarium if I was ever in San Fran. How cool is that? :cool:

I also met John Baizley of Baroness about two weeks ago, and talked to him for about ten or fifteen minutes - another super-nice guy, and humble as hell. He likes a lot of badass bands that I also like, and I even got a few recommendations from him about some awesome albums to check out.

I talked to Linus from Burst on and off for about a half-hour at their show in Detroit a few months ago...it was their first and last U.S. tour before disbanding shortly thereafter. :( Again, Linus was super cool as well (plus, he likes a lot of the same music I do, so bonus points for that!).

I've met most of the guys from Pelican - they are really down to earth as well. Real chill dudes, from a really awesome band. :blaze:

I chatted with Matt Pike once in the crapper at the Grog Shop - he made some comment about what a shithole the bathroom was and laughed, and I told him he'd better rock our fucking asses off that night, to which he laughed and said, "right on, brother" (and they sure as fuck did!).

I talked with Brendan Tobin from Made Out of Babies after their set, who confirmed that Julie Christmas was indeed probably in the back coming down off the psychotic rage that she had worked herself into on stage. Once I heard this, I was too chicken shit to meet her in person (not that I would have had the chance anyway), and I just talked to Brendan for a bit longer and skedaddled the hell out of there. :eyes: Maybe next time, Julie. ;)

I've also met Phillip Cope from Kylesa, Scott Hull from Pig Destroyer, Mike Flores from Origin, Bill Robinson from Decrepit Birth, Sean Beasley from Dying Fetus and Andrew Barnes from Gifts from Enola. All of them seemed to be really great people.

I know there are probably more, but that's all I could think of off the top of my head.

Guy from The Red Chord is for sure one of the nicest guys i have met from a band. I talked to him for like 15 mins when i saw Red Chord open for Acacia Strain.

My experience meeting Mastodon was very good you are kind of lucky Brent wasn't there because he is a dick.

Yeah, I had a great conversation with him before Gwar came on. I told him how kickass the new album was and how they should play more songs from Fused Together In Revolving Doors. He said thanks and that they'd try to get some Fused songs in there the next time they come around:party:.

I've heard stories that Brent is a dick, but I always assumed that it was just because he was drunk or something. The 3 guys that I did meet were really cool though.

lol looks like you met a lot of bands at Sounds of the Underground '07.

Add Mushroomhead and Chimaira(forgot to add them in the original list) to that list and yes I did. I met them all at the MN date of the Sound of The Underground tour. By this time This Is Hell and Necro dropped off the tour. It was the first "Tr00" Metal festival I ever went to, but it had plenty of good times.


The Devil Wears Prada, well, I respect what they do but when I met them they freaked the fuck outta me. I swear one of them was a "Hey,wanna head back to my tour bus?" look to my best friend. At that show, they were also pelted with water bottles during their last song, after they announced that it was dedicated to Jesus Christ.

Every Time I Die are cool guys. They didn't say too much,they all looked pretty tired like they just woke up, but they were still cool.

Chimaira really respects their fans, I'm not too big on their stuff but after meeting them I had a whole new appreciation for them.

Amon Amarth are fucking badass. I got to hang out with Johan (vocals) for a few extra minutes and we were talking about the Swedish Death Metal scene. Also a great story about Johan. While waiting in line to get inside the show. Johan walked past the line of people with 2 36 packs of beer in each arm going into his tour bus. Looking towards the line and screaming. "YYYEEEAAAHH MMMEEETTTAAALLL!!!" then walked on the bus.

Mushroomhead were pretty cool guys as well, especially their singer. They were all dressed up in their outfits but they were talking like normal guys. Again, I'm not the biggest fan of these guys, but they put on a hell of a halftime show.

Darkest Hour. I basically hung out with the band the entire time Shadows Fall were playing. I mainly talked to Kris Norris (ex guitarist). I talked with him almost 20 minutes about Devin Townsend and Dream Theater. This was when I first heard he wanted to make a solo album that at the time he called "A more Metal version of Liquid Tension Experiment". Two years later, The Kris Norris Projekt comes out. I got a fully signed Promo poster for Deliver Us along with meeting the guys.

Shadows Fall. Just some of the coolest down to earth guys I ever met. Especially Brian Fair (vocals) and Jason Bittner (drums). Jason and I talked for a good 10-15 minutes about drums and drumming. I guess it really doesn't matter, but it was cool to know that he wore the same type of frames I do for glasses.

I really wished I would have met GWAR, I was hoping to, but I didn't get the opportunity.

*All the bands except Darkest Hour (who signed their own Promo Poster for me) signed a Promo Poster for Sounds Of The Underground.*

sounds like a pretty fun day. i really regret not going to SOTU now that i think about it. Shadows Fall, Amaon Amarth, and Darkest Hour in one day would have been amazing to see. unfortunately i wasn't too big on those bands back then, plus SOTU was being held at a seated ampitheater. so i thought all the bands would play on a big stage with a bunch of seats, when it turns out the whole show was held at the parking lot. oh well.
