Tommaso is really cool. I met him at Rock and Shock last year. I can add Devin Townsend and Red Fang to people that are cool list (especially Devin Townsend, such a fucking awesome dude.)

I MUST add Devin Townsend and Ryan Van Poederooyen, as the two coolest people I have ever met in my life.

Dev being my hero. and RVP being a good internet/drummer friend of mine since before Synchestra came out. It was cool to finally be able to hang out with him for the first time back July 5th. Hopefully we'll be hanging out again either in Minnesota, or I'll be taking the drive to Chicago in October.

When I met him at No Fear he was cool and signed my sweatshirt, but when I went to give him a fist bump before I walked away he gave me this weird look like "You're joking, right?" before he did it. You'd think I walked up and was like "Hello my homie, I was wondering if you would be down for showing a brother some love"

I read on his Twitter he was in London, took a photo outside a pub that claims to be the birthplace of Iron Maiden! His book is a fun read for a both a wrestling and metal fan. He said one of his favorite bands ever was Helloween, and that's why he named his "signature move" the "Wall of Jericho".

Tobin Abasi is one cool guy. He was really appreciative of everyone and took time to talk to anyone that came up to him after they were done last night.

Say, I have a photo there. The Cart-and-Horses in Stratford. Kind of a shitty pub, to be honest.

I can't recall ever meeting anyone in a band that came off as a dick. But here's the people off the top of my head that were the coolest/friendliest I've met in person:

Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquillity)
George, Paul and Alex from Cannibal Corpse
Johann Hegg and Olavi Mikkonen (Amon Amarth)
Fernando Ribeiro (Moonspell)
Ben Falgoust (Goatwhore)
Chad Ginsburg and Jess Margera (CKY)
All the guys in Suffocation

^I think we went to the same Suffocation show.

EDIT: Derp on my part. We go to the same shows.

Right on, man. I haven't been to many shows lately due to lack of finances. I'm hoping to be able to make the rest of the shows in my sig though (I missed Exhumed).
