Almost everyone in a band I've ever met has been nice. They usually just seem really appreciative that you care about their music and bothered to walk up to their merch table/bus/barstool to tell them so. And it's pretty fucking easy to meet bands without really trying, so I'm not gonna sit here and make a list - I've met way, way, way too many musicians I admire for that.
My favorite encounters have been with Brann Dailor and Mikael Åkerfeldt, probably.
EDIT: Oh, and honorable mention to Phil McSorley, who was a wonderful and candid interviewee, but whom I unfortunately had to interview by phone thanks to geographical complications.
Mortals are mortar and life is the fuse.
