:party: I've never met any "famous" (well, he's not famous either but ya know) band members before, I was at the local music shop jamming with my friend and he was talking to some guy and saw my Exodus shirt so yeah, he cool, and large :lol: If you don't know he played on Forbidden's "Forbidden Evil" (in my opinion a classic thrash record) and Testament's "Demonic" albums, and he's got a project right now called Tenet with that drummer Adrian Erlandsson (At The Gates, Cradle Of Filth, Brujeria, The Haunted) and a guy from Strapping Young Lad.

I thought it was pretty cool, unexpected definitely. Anyone else ever randomly run into someone in the metal scene or know anyone like that? :)

Nope, but he did look familiar for some reason :eyes: I actually thought he was gonna say he was in Death Angel.

Haha, so did he come up to you and was like, " Hey nice Exodus shirt. I don't know if you know this, but I'm Glen Alvelais. ;) "

Oh..forgot a few...I met Sal Lococo, the singer from Sworn Enemy, at their merch table, one of the guitarists from The Sword at their merch table, I eavesdropped a conversation one fan was having with all of Lacuna Coil after the show (because I didnt have the balls to talk to Cristina), and I said "good show" to Tom S. Englund after his show.

I dont know if those count as encounters.

I think most of you guys know my Overkill story, but here it is in brief again...

My neighbor (the wife of the family) is Dave Linsk's sister, so I was able to get backstage and meet the band at a show in NYC. Plus, Bobby Blitz and his wife own a chocolate shop 10 minutes from my house, so I went in and chatted with Bobby once.

If we count any and all encounters I've "run into" a hell of a lot of guys in bands at shows. :lol:
