Have you ever met a famous musician?

How did it go?

I met Greg Saunier (the drummer from Deerhoof) and he was a pretty cool guy. He's super awkward and doesn't really seem comfortable talking to people but he was generally really cool and I count it as a positive experience.
>>
I've met and worked with guys that are like-famous. Not giving any names, but all great guys, even to a shitstain like me.

i saw tyler the creator at the apple store, he looked depressed as fuck.

i saw vince staples hanging out with speak, vince just mad dogged me until i walked by.

I saw Flying Lotus a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn't want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, "Oh, like you're doing now?"
I was taken aback, and all I could say was "Huh?" but he kept cutting me off and going "huh? huh? huh?" and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw FlyLo trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like "Sir, you need to pay for those first." At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually "to prevent any electrical infetterence," and then turned around and winked at me. I don't even think that's a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

Met a fair amount of metal bands, no one insanely famous, but guys that have music on spotify and tour the country. I know that doesn't mean much, but they were all cool.

Met John Ford Coley at a church in Nashville. Extremely nice guy, he held a door for me and we chatted for a good half hour.

Was within 5 feet of Blake Shelton at Gulf Coast Jam this year. Seems like a nice guy.

I saw Jay Z at a Fat Burger in northern LA.

He was just walking in and I was outside walking to the car. He threw me a peace sign and I gave him a head nod. Seemed pretty cool out of that really quick "interaction".

I fist bumped mac demarco after a show and he seemed visually disgusted that I did it, after a few moments he said that he preferred a good old fashioned hand shake and then I kissed his cheek while taking a selfie with him.

>>51604693
I met Andrew Lloyd Webber in 2007
Ted Neeley in 2004.

I met Danny Elfman way back in 1995
>>
Not really a story of myself meeting a musician but regardless.

>At Swans in LA last summer.
>Michael Gira hanging out in parking lot drinking an energy drink, smoking a cigarette, chatting with venue staff and bandmates.
>Some Mexican guy tries parking in that lot despite the fact it's closed and they have a chain blocking it off.
>He decides to go in anyways and gets the front of his car snagged in the chain.
>Michael Gira helps him get his car free all while giving him the most scornful look possible.

I would have gone and said hi to him if I wasn't so beta.

Met julian koster twice. He even remembered me from the first time I met him.

Met panda bear after his show and shook his hand, signed my record too.

I met Ben Folds and he was very nice

I've met p4k famous artists if that counts.

the guys from Parquet Courts were super cool with me, I met the bass player and the guitarist Austin at the SF show and saw them the next day in LA and I saw them outside the venue and got talking to them for a little.

Met Sky Ferreira and small talked with her at a DIIV show, she was shy but cool.

Met Mac at one of his shows, he was walking around the crowd and I was the first to approach him, asked him to cover Limp Bizkit and he did it, cool guy but kinda smelled.

Met Courtney Barnett after her set at a festival. Literally one of the nicest musicians I have ever met. I was talking to her and her bass player for like 5 minutes about music and other shit they have coming up, they were just great.

Met Lee Speilman in LA, really nice and humble dude, only talked to him for a little.

Also at a recent Deafheaven show I saw George Clarke pass right in front of me and I said hi to him and he said hi back.

>>51604693
Last summer I met Sufjan Stevens at a meet n' greet in Miami. It was in a pretty intimate little auditorium. At one point, he got the name of "A Short Reprise of Mary Todd" wrong.

So I stood up in my seat and corrected him.

Taylor Swift stayed at a hotel I work at. I ended up seeing her in the hallway, and asked for an autograph. She was quite friendly and smelt nice.
I was tempted to jerk off in her room after she left.

She slept in that room. They hadn't changed the sheets yet, her bum and pussy had both been in that bed, it would smell like her sweat, and possibly other bodily fluids.

I met the dillinger escape plan (-drummer) at Warped Tour 2010 in Toronto briefly at their merch table. I mentioned how they were rly good, not like shitty sum 41 that was playing at the moment and they thought that was awesome and signed "anon kill all posers dead forever" on my shoe because i had bought no merch for to be signed

I always see Dale Crover smoking before Melvins shows but I've never really talked to him aside from holding the door for him and being like "hell yea dale!" cause thats really all I need to say, I met bradford cox from deerhunter a few times and he was really nice, I've met Dan Deacon a few times and he was really nice, Aesop Rock is really nice, Tim and Eric are really tall, Killer Mike is really really nice and also extremely sweaty after shows, and the Lightning Bolt dudes are super nice

what did she smell like?
and where do you work at to have this opportunity

I sometimes picture myself in a moderately successful rock band and I always wonder what it would be like to be recognized in public.
I would want to be the nicest person to every fan who ever talked to me, because it would reflect positively on the rest of the band.
>>
Jeff Rosenstock, John Galm, Kitty, Sean Bonnette, and Mikey Erg are all really nice people.

I awkwardly shook Dan the Automator's hand after a Deltron 3030 show about a month ago and asked if they were recording anything new. Apparently they are.

>>51606847
I saw the Melvins at a bar near where I live; Dale and Buzz were having a drink and chatting at a table when they started letting people in. I would have said hi but honestly had no idea what to say to them. They started getting harassed for photos and Buzz immediately retreated backstage.

>>51606892
Not a lot, just really clean. It was pleasant.
Big hotel in Brisbane, she stayed here while touring Aus last year. She was a really nice girl, but also totally hot and I kinda regret not possibly finding out what her pussy smells like.

My hometown has a music fest every summer and I've been working it part-time for about five years now.. Mostly local groups and tribute bands, but a couple years back they got Blue Oyster Cult. Helped them set up, they all seem like nice guys. Also ran into John Darnielle a few months back during his book tour.

I'm an intern at a recording studio and I met The Sugar Hill Gang and the band In Living Colour.

I used to see Modest Mouse quite a lot back in the LCW days. Back then Isaac wasn't a fat fuck and he had these ridiculous sideburns. Usually after gigs a few of us fans would hang out with the band and just talk or whatever.

Anyway, one night after a gig we were all talking and Isaac said something about my shirt. It was a pink He-man shirt that I liked and he said something about it being faggy, like "What's with the faggy shirt?" or something. So I replied, "Well, what's with those faggy sideburns?" and then shit hit the fan. Everybody went silent and just stared at me. Isaac was seething but he didn't do anything. One of the guys, I think it was Dan, shook his head and I took the hint and excused myself.

For a while Modest Mouse didn't play anywhere, and I didn't go to any of their dates because I didn't want to face Isaac. Apparently took the sideburns thing too seriously and he swore he'll wreck my face in when we met. So I stayed away.

When I heard they were releasing Moon & Antarctica I thought fuck it, I still like these guys and I want to hear them play again, and I'm sure Isaac isn't such a bitch that he'll hold a grudge. So when I heard that they'll be in town again I went to their gig but I stayed near the back.

That's when I saw Isaac, all pudgy and shit, his faggy sideburns missing. To this day I like to think that I did that. I made Isaac Brock shave his sideburns.

Holy shit Jeff got old.

Julian might as well be Peter Pan, in that regard.

>>51604693
You met gandamn style?
>>
I've met...

>Valerie June
She was pretty rude. She isn't even that popular but acted like she was better than the group I was with. We saw her out on the sidewalk before the show and just asked "are you Valerie June??" and all she said was "yes I am" and kept walking. She didn't even turn to look at us.

>Darby & Pete from The Antlers
I accidentally bought tickets for a show at a venue that was 21+, but they were super cool and let us stand outside and listen (you could still hear perfectly and even see them a little). The manager of the place felt so bad he brought the band out to meet us. They were super nice. it was pretty sweet.

>Sylvan Esso
Had a record signing after the show. Super nice people

>Andrew Bird
He was super shy & a little awkward, but he was still nice and took a picture with us. There was a woman with a kid who wanted to meet him by us, which is the reason he came over to where we were. He's got a soft spot for kids!

I had some good luck with meeting artists this summer!

Michael Gira signed my CD, and said "Hey buddy" when I said hi at the merch table. Also met Jenny Hval at the same merch table.

Met the guys from this group called Thank You Scientist, they had opened for Coheed & Cambria. Good guys, their singles and album had just reached number one on some iTunes charts. Tried to stick around to meet Claudio afterwords but I think he was sick.

In a few months I'm seeing The Decemberists live. I want to knit a hat for Colin Meloy and give him a book so I can meet him - haven't decided between "The Great Influenza" about the Spanish Flu or "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. Both are fitting to his music.

is Dylan Baldi a genuinely a nice guy?

I met and made sort of friends with Albini back in uni. Friends as in I get to meet a bunch of musicians I'd never expect to meet, but sort of in the sense that we don't talk much. Albini is actually much better at socializing than people would think but he always has shades of being superior to others and I always get the feeling he thinks he's the center of attention. Not in an arrogant way, just in a "I'm better than everyone" way, if that makes any sense.

I also in 2012 with some luck met a lot of late 80s and early 90s rappers, usually the political ones, like Chuck D (Carlton Riderhour), Paris (Oscar Jackson), and my best find, KRS-One (Lawrence Parker). They had war stories, shit they were willing to tell a scrawny white boy like me.
>>
>>51607723

Not the anon that you're replying to, but unless I might actually know you, we need to meet!

Well, until I'm back from break. We should go to Reverb or Waiting Room someday.
>>
>>51607816
Yeah he was cool. We're the same age and it was a hometown show (his parents were in the audience) and he just came off like a regular guy, very down to earth

>>51607854
Very humble, you could tell they loved what they were doing and were thrilled to have so many fans now. Sam, the frontman, was just walking around the venue floor after the show talking to anyone who approached him
>>
>>51607729
No shit

>>51607991
Man you're lucky, didn't get to meet Dylan when I saw them. I feel like we'd be good buds

big whoop. everyone in portland has. None of those bands are anything above average
>>
>>51608018
Was it at a normal venue or a festival set? I've seen them 3 times at normal club venues and they've always hung around after shows.
>>
HR from Bad Brains. He was really quiet and smelled like weed and BO. Called me "Sir".
Dave Mustaine. He sneered at me at stumbled away, drunk.
Corrosion of Conformity. Queensryche. Clutch. Ripper Owens. All super cool dudes.
John Joseph from Cro Mags. He was a douche.
Eye Hate God and Iron Reagan. Obnoxious, but fun.
Fintroll. They didn't speak too much English. Okay guys.
>>
I met Julian Koster and he's so nice and sweet. He's the human incarnation of Peter Pan
>>
>>51608092
normal venue. Did see the guys from Metz talking to guys but I didn't see them. They had done a set at a record store before and a signing and they were scheduled for 2 LA shows after the show I went too. Maybe they were too tired to meet fans
>>
>>
Met Lockett Pundt from Deerhunter once.
He's quiet, and honestly awkward as hell.

Also met Broken Social Scene once, they're the best people. I wish we could be friends.

Sort of met Finn Andrews from The Veils, but that was mostly just a selfie opportunity to make my friends who was sort of obsessed with him jealous.
>>
>>51608248
he was surprisingly short but very chill
>>
>>51608248
he seems like a really cool guy
>>
>>51607796

knit something for a musician? that's kind of adorable
>>
>>51608287
he seems like a solid dude. he bought my brother a jamba juice at the airport once also another time one of my friends also met him at the mall. he said that skrillex actually came up to him after he noticed him looking and said whats up. he said they talked for a few minutes and was just an all around cool guy.
>>
>>51607957
I am jammin to KRS as I am reading through this thread. That'd be fucking awesome to meet him. Hell yes.
>>
>>51608367
I mean he makes some terribad music but I feel like he's just a heart warming dude and really loves fans and the people who acknowledge him. He doesn't seem full of himself like Joel
>>
>>51608226
Ah yeah, that's a packed schedule. Well they tour all the time so you should have another chance
>>
I saw Foliage and Devin sucking each other off yesterday
>>
>>51607796
I'd go with the flu book. He's probably read "The Road".

I mean, hasn't every bearded white guy under 40?
>>
>>51608387
They came last month but it was a 21+ event so that really sucked but the thing that sucked even more is that they played a free show before that one.

Their free show was at UC Berkeley and I go to school right down the hill from UCB and the show was in mid-day during my Geography lecture. It was an unannounced thing so I was totally unaware of it until it was finished
>>
>>51608381
i agree.even if you dont like his music you just cant hate a guy who seems so genuinely appreciative of his success
>>
>>51606333
I'm jealous.

>>51608419

Hahah, that's kind of funny. I guess most have.

Maybe I will go with the flu book and just ask about the other.

Just recently met Joe D'Agostino from Cymbals Eat Guitars. He's really rad and we talked about Cap'N Jazz.

I've met Mike Kinsella several times actually. He lives in Wicker Park and I'm there every so often so I'll say hi. He's really down to earth. Funny guy. Also met him after Cap' N Jazz's show in Chicago back in like 2010.

Met the guys from Circa Survive. They're all rad people

Casey Crescenzo from The Dear Hunter is a pretty great guy.

Didn't really meet her, but I said hi to Annie Clark when she was in Milwaukee earlier this year.

Met all the dudes from Local Natives after they played a college show at Wheaton College. They're all great guys and we talked for a while about snow and stuff.

Talked to David Bazan after a show once and he was pretty rad to talk to. Hilarious dude and pretty insightful.
>>
>>51606201

Was she judging a wet t-shirt contest or something?
>>
My girlfriend actually met Dylan when she was in Italy. She was one of the few Americans there so she got to hang out with him briefly. She said he was pretty awkward, but very nice. I've got a signed record as a result! (she only knew about them because I mentioned it on a few occasions)
>>
never anyone ultra famous but ive talked to a lot of bands after shows and what not.

met dylan calrson a number of times, hes quite a cool guy. talked to Michael Gallagher from isis in a coffee shop. really friendly. talked to Greg Anderson from sunn a number of times. i brought up brotherhood and engine kid which he was quite amused at
>>
I met all of porcupine tree after a show. They were all pretty gracious and friendly. Richard was drunk, gavin was tired, colin and johnathan were happy to be there. SW was accommodating but seemed kind of no-nonsense and nervous around people.

uhhhmm lets see

>Efrim Menuck
This year i saw gybe and when the concert ended i asked my friends to stay for a while watching them pack up. I didn't really expect anything because, if anyone here has seen them live, they're really distant.. i was just really awestruck. But after like 15 minutes and only me still there I noticed Efrim looking in my direction so i pointed him and asked "do you have a pick, Efrim? Thank you for the concert, it was absolutely surreal". He pointed at himself, somewhat puzzled, gave a really nice warm smile and went to grab a pick. He was on stage and i had a fence in front so he threw the pic but it fell on the grass right in front of the fence. He then made a really sad face and said "i'm sorry.." and i was like "OH DONT WORRY I WON'T LEAVE WITHOUT IT, ILL FIND A WAY". He then gave a little chuckle and waved me goodbye.

>Com Truise
the venue was super small and he was just chilling at the bar while the opening band was playng. I had to ask a friend of mine to ask him if we could take a photo. He was suuuper nice and chatted with us for a while telling us how he was loving Lisbon and really wanted to come back for holidays and talking about his mum who asked him for photos. When we tried taking a photo the first one was way too dark but we were like "oh.. its ok" but he was like "oh nonono" and grabbed his iphone and turned on the light so the photo was decent. super friendly guy.

>The Dodos
Met both the vocalist and drummer, super nice guys, the drummer chatted a lot and asked about typical portuguese cuisine. got their autograph.

>Mac DeMarco
I dont even like him but he was watching Thee Oh Sees at the side of the stage and there was this guy constantly yelling for his attention. At the end of their concert when they were already packing he threw him a cigarette which i caught. he laughed and waved at me, i think he was making fun of the other guy for not getting the cigarette. I later gave it to guy bc he was sad.

>God is an Astronaut
A month before the concert or something, they made a fb event for their concert here in Lisbon. I asked on the event if they were only going to play songs from their most recent album. I never got a reply but on the same day the drummer sent me a fb request (yes, im a girl), i added him later some weeks later (didn't recognize him at first). The day before the concert he asked me if i want to grab a drink before the concert, to which i agree. The venue is really close to my uni so i got there super early and we managed to talk for around two hours at an open-bar right next to the river. It was perfect: he paid me a cola, introduced me to all the members (i had already met Gazz before and he remembered me because back then he needed a pen to sign autographs and i lent him my hole pencil case). They highfived me, joked about my pencilcase (i had it with me again), and chitchatted - it was really nice.
During the concert I was right up front and i cried quite a lot because i was having a shit week and Jamie, the guitarist, noticed. So he pointed at me, at his lips, smiled and told me to smile. At the end of the concert the guys threw their picks but Jamie walked in my direction, brushed all the hands aside, grabbed both of my hands really tight and slid the pick in between them. He then gave a little kiss on my hand and waved me and the crowd goodbye. We talked some more and stuff after the concert. Jamie gave me a really nice hug and said he saw me crying and that i should smile "because i looked cute when i smiled" ;; To this day it's still the best concert i've been to. They're really spectacular people, super down to earth.

Kimye Dawson - She was very nice and welcoming. I was exhausted at the time though, so I couldn't have made much of an impression.

Monte Cazazza - very sweet guy and extremely intelligent. Told me all about the Iran-Iraq war, seemed to know a lot about any subject that came up. A little introverted.

Jello Biafra - loud, smiley, cussed a lot, awkward

Richard Hell - very nice, thoughtful, insightful

Wynton Marsalis - disinterested, short answers, cordial

>Bradford Cox
I've met him on a few occasions. Once at a grocery store, twice after shows. He's always very friendly and very talkative. He'll chat forever about anything.

>Panda Bear
Very quiet, slightly standoffish. Had no problem taking a picture with my friend though.

I smoked pot with St. Vincent.

>>
>>51610016
I saw Anthony Fantano at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.

He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”

I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.

The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.

When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.

Not that famous but I met Kitty in the airport while we were walking directions. I said hi and took a picture with her, was pretty awkward.

I met Tycho
He's alright

>>51609945
She made me promise there was no PCP or crack in it. It was cool.

alright you guys this is a TRUE story. i was tripping acid at a flying lotus show and accidently unplugged his set twice. it was in dallas 2012 at manifestation celebration. there was a loose plug in the wall in the crowd and i told one of the dudes working and he stood on a chair in front of it. i then met flying lotus, shook his hand and he gave me a look that was like "ahhh i see you" and then i awkwardly followed him around until he left :)

Dude I'm a huuuuuge alex g fan, anyway you could elaborate on this a little more? I always thought he seemed quite awkward.

Only story I have is when I saw TTNG live a year ago, me and my friends got them stones outside the venue. All really nice dudes, the lead singer said he loved my jawbreaker shirt.
Smoked a dart with Mac demarco when I saw him last summer, he talked about how weird the Calgary scene is

Me and my friend got to interview Each Other for our radio station, reall nice dudes

I met Devin Townsend a few weeks ago. I was wearing a Death Grips shirt and he asked about it. Cool guy, sorta awkward tho

Did Aesop say anything that could have been taken as "pretentious"
>>
>>51610552
Yeah he was, I came up to him and told him the set was tight and all, and he just sorta said "Oh, yeah, thanks..." It was a house show so everyone was chilling there beforehand so I met all the other members, who were all real cool. We just drank beers and smoked cigs on the porch, except for Alex, who showed up pretty much 10-20 minutes before the set.

It's easy to meet people. It's not always easy to find things to say.

I've met everyone from QOTSA, Chevelle (Pete's a fucking dick), Dead Sara, Lee Rocker, Ewan Dobson, Michael League from Snarky Puppy, Young Fathers, Royal Blood, Tera Melos, Pinback, Vulfpeck, Kenny Segal, Clipping., Busdriver, and Thundercat.

Hoping to meet Jesse and Seb from DFA1979 when I see them this Wednesday. We shall see how that goes. If anyone wants any previous stories, feel free to ask.

I met Laurel Halo at a club once, She was nice, kinda shy though, Just stopped by to say hi though so I didn't get a chance to say anything more.

I talked to Andy Stott a little bit. He's a nice guy, kind of an average kinda dude, Just talked about Boomkat & Compressors.

Mark Pritchard is probably one of the nicest guys I've ever met though. We talked about footwork and other stuff for ages until the security guard dragged him away.

Dude, you totally should've. They're very nice, a bit weird (but I mean, what would you expect?). I talked with Nick about pedals and shit, asked them how the tour had been going and stuff like that. Didn't get to meet the drummer, but did get Nick and Nathan to sign my Patagonian Rats vinyl in their own unique ways (Nick just drew a silly caricature and Nathan traced out his name within the HAPPY on the cover). Pic related.

Oh yeah, and we gave some drunk girls a hard time. For whatever reason, they came up and said Nathan was ignoring them during the show or something, so Nathan was trying to sort things out, but after realizing how drunk they were, just started fucking with them. It was pretty funny.

I work at a big music news site so I've met a whole lot of musicians.

Anyone from Elton John to Dan Deacon to Vampire Weekend to Tyler, The Creator. A really big range.

Anyone, 99% of the time it's been a good experience except for Michael of Passion Pit. We were sponsoring a show with them as headliners, so we needed a couple of signed CDs to give away to fans who had won a contest. They made a huge deal about it, they had their tour manager call their manager to allow the signing, then Michael flipped and broke the CDs and slammed their dressing room door.
>>
Met all The Antlers after a show one time and they were all super nice. Also met Nick Thorburn from the Unicorns before a show and he was super cool. Got to hug Travis Morrison from The Dismemberment Plan during Ice of Boston once as well.

I'm going to meet Ty Sygall soon because I'm friends with his cousin.

I met Thank You Scientist on that same tour. It was really cool of them to hang out at the merch stand and meet fans. They were really stoked when I bought their vinyl for them to sign. Rad guys. They all lifted me in the air for a picture we took together. Talked to their Bass player and singer mostly. We shook hands before they left and I wished them a good tour.

i went to a bright eyes show maybe 10 years ago, me and the girl i went with went up to conor oberst after the show and she asked if we could take a picture with him and kinda held up the digital camera, he said "sure," took it from her and just chucked it across the venue over people's heads and walked away. didn't hit anyone but it got smashed.

I work in a music venue, I get to meet tons of bands, a lot of them will stick around and get drunk with the staff after we close. My favourite was Jesse from Eagles of Death Metal, he ended up coming in and hanging out a few nights in a row. I always volunteer to take the rider to the band room as well, usually get a few sneaky shots or joint passed to me and a quick chat in.
