-Bob Katsionis (Firewind)
-Zak Stevens (Savatage, Circle II Circle)
-Jeff Plate (Savatage, TSO)
-Dave Meniketti (Y&T)
-Alex Beyrodt (Silent Force, Primal Fear)
-Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Yngwie, solo)
-Bobby Jarzombek (Riot, Halford, etc)
-Manticora (some of the coolest and friendliest people I've ever met, especially Lars. Hanging out with them for 2 days was a blast)
-Biff Byford (Saxon)
-Al Pitrelli (Savatage, TSO) - seriously, what an ass hole. I've heard he's not always bad and I caught him on a bad day or something - but still, there was no excuse for how shitty he acted.
-Mat Sinner (Primal Fear, Sinner) - not terrible, but just kinda has this subtle "you're wasting my time" attitude about him.
