Have you ever met a celebrity or a famous musician/band before? If so, who did you meet?
I'll start with myself. Within less than a year, I've met several bands and/or musicians all of which I met at concerts.
First off, last October, I met Nightwish at the meet and greet before their concert with Kamelot. This was after Annette Olzon left in the middle of the same tour and Floor Jansen (ReVamp) filled in for them. I printed out a picture they had taken earlier on in the tour with Floor in it and had them all sign it above their heads.
Next, in November I met Epica at the meet and greet before their concert with Alestorm and Insomnium, and got a picture taken with them as well as my tour poster signed.
Later that month, I met Eluveitie at the meet and greet before their concert with Wintersun and Varg, and got them to sign my tour poster. I didn't get a picture with them, however, much to my surprise, I got a picture with the one and only Jari Mäenpää of Wintersun, and got him to sign my copy of Time I.
Here's the CD he signed:
Afterwards, this past February I met Sabaton at the meet and greet for their concert, got my picture taken with them and got them to sign my copy of Carolus Rex (European Limited Edition). Joakim Brodén liked my 8-bit sunglasses by the way. :D He actually said he almost wanted to trade me. Yes, for his trademark aviators!
Here's the CD:
Later that month I saw Turisas and Firewind, and got the opportunity to take a picture with Robert Engstrand of Turisas after the show.
Then, at Paganfest earlier this month, there was a Meet and Greet for Ensiferum, who are my favorite band tied with Symphony X. Naturally, I couldn't miss it.
I got my picture taken with them, they signed my cd (that I had bought moments before) and handed out guitar picks.
The pick they handed out. I made a necklace out of it with plexiglass and guitar string.
Last but not least, my hall of fame. Note that all of these are signed.
What about you?
