Mike love is a faggot. one time I saw him digging through the trash trying to find some treasure. He started rambling about a formula and how it was fucked with. I asked him if he was mike love of the beach boys and he said "Mike Love baby!!" and ran off.
I saw Jeff Magnum at a book 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 photo 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 copies of the Diary of Anne Frank 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 books 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 book and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
I saw Bones at a grocery store in Oakland 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 bottles of Fiji Water 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.
in the lobby before he show doug martsch and i were walking towards each other in opposing directions and without saying a word i extended my hand and we shook hands and kept walking. it was a little surreal in the fact that we didnt say a word we and we didnt expect an exchange of words, just the acknowledgement was enough.
Got backstage at Mayhem Fest before. Got to meet Avenged Sevenfold, Asking Alexandria, Korn, and Mushroomhead. At Summerfest ive met the guitarest from Survivor, Jimmy Chamberlin from Smashing Pumpkins, met Katy Perry at Graceland of all places(she was with Russel Brand at the time)she just asked me to move for a pic, ran into the guys from Modern Baseball at Riot Fest Eugene Hutz from Gogol Bordello at Lollapalooza(i was so. damn. stoned. He was awesome though), Meat Puppets also at Summerfest drummer for Tiny Moving Parts. Just hanging around after a show Brian Sella from The Front Bottoms. Waited for him after a show at Riot Fest with some friends. Right as we were giving up hope and walked away just to fuck with my friends i said HEY ITS BRIAN SELLAthen wtf turned around and he was there Met members of Real Friends and Knuckle Puck many times. I live in the same town as them so ive had many run ins at local shows and last but not lease again at Summerfest I saw Alice Cooper sitting on a couch and met his. Good times.
i saw ratking in nyc in august and wiki was hanging around in the park afterwards. there were a lot of people around and i wanted to talk to him, but the only thing i was actually interested in asking him about was death grips. i realized that it was pretty shitty, but this guy had traveled and hung around with mc ride and zach hill so i had to ask. i walked up to him and said "hey man, great show.". a big black dude started talking to him so he looked at me and said "hold on a sec, jeeves.". and i waited around for a few minutes while his mom talked to him about being safe tonight. finally he looks at me and i said "yo, you toured with death grips right?". he looks confused for a second and then says no. i was like, "oh i thought you toured with death grips", and he just didn't remember. i was such an awkward shit haha.
also, i saw iceage in bk, and thery were fantastic. saw elias smoking a cig outside after the show and said "really loved the show, man. thank you.". he didn't look up from the ground and nodded his head a little bit. my friends still make fun of me for both of those times.
>>61874919 I saw Death Grips in Memphis a few months ago. While standing in line, MC Ride walked into the waiting area and just looked around a little. My friend and I thought that it couldn't possibly be him and joked around about introducing ourselves to "Mr. Ride," definitely within his earshot. He went into the tattoo shop next door and chatted up the people working there.
Later, when Death Grips came on, we realized how fucking stupid we were.
I was out with my lil sis shopping and we happened to bump into Kim Kardashian. Apparently my mom and sis watch the show religiously together, so a bunch of "Oh my gods" ensued. She said hi to acknowledge me but for the most part I just awkwardly stood there as they took a selfie. But all of a sudden a black hand rest upon my shoulders, Kanye himself. I tried to hid my power level and managed to barely pull off one if those chest pump things (looking back I'm surprised my autistic tendencies didn't take over.) I tried to hide my power level (I'm a big fan) so I just said "hey thanks for letting me sis get a pic, she'll really appreciate it." I feel like I cut my time off shirt cause in the end I didn't even grab a pic myself.
>>61875193 in what possible way? it was very rad that he knew i knew who was and showed it by a cordial handshake. it wouldve been "gay" and awkward had either of us been weird about it was just a mutual gesture between two grown men. grow up. it sounds like your life sucks.
I met Killer Mike at Oberlin College. He was doing a discussion/Q&A. I asked him a basic question, and he answered it politely. Later I raised my hand, and he pointed at me. I asked, "Can I shake your hand?!"
He then said, "...ill be around for autographs and meet and greats at the end of the Q&A" or something like that.
It was an out of body experience desu.
I went up to him after the thing, asked him for an autograph, shook his hand, and talked to him for a lil bit about wrestling. He's a very intelligent, and polite man.
Met Kevin Barnes at a solo show in Kamalzoo Michigan. It was at a small church and I got their really early and was able to listen to him preform some Bowie songs for sound check, just me him and the audio guy. Cherished memory, as he complemented my shirt and later that night be signed my copy of his documentary and I got to listen to him talk about Bowie, this was 2014. He was really demure, but chill, no crew or did everything himself
Literally the best day of the whole year since I also made out with a cutie and was offered sex.
Clip form that show https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UlkCqoA4sI
Met Kaya and the rest of Femme Fatale a few months ago. He was so nice and pleasant, complimented him in broken Japanese and Spanish for the hell of it. Guitarist was also nice and funny, I told him he was badass on stage and he asked his translator what it meant, and he kept repeating it over and over, guess he thought it was a funny English slang word.
Ran into Troy Sanders of Mastodon at a liquor store, said hey, told him i'm a fan, he said thanks and carried on his business.
Also ran into Frank Black walking his dog a few times because he used to live in my neighborhood. Just shouted "hey frank!" the first time and he gave me a wave, I didn't really want to bother him after that.
Several. I met a few guys from Electric Six (Johnny Na$hinal, Tait Nucleus?) and their (now former) drummer Percussion World is a close family friend. My uncle is Troy Gregory, he has played with The Dirtbombs, Prong, Flotsam and Jetsam, my personal favorite Killing Joke, and /mu/'s wet dream, Swans. He is currently working on some very progressive material for a solo album and is continuing work with his band The Witches.
Bob Geldof ate a soup at my family restaurant whilst reading the paper.
Then there are the random metal people like Neige from Alcest or Alan (?) from Primordial that I'd bump into because the concert venues were quite small. Idk, I feel dirty even mentioning them since they are in no way musically relevant.
I've hung out with Kevin Barnes multiple times after New Orleans shows. The whole band usually goes to the bar next door to the Howlin' Wolf, where they usually play. He's really approachable and holds a neat convo over a gin and tonic or two.
Ran into Panda Bear at Shaky Knees fest last year. We had a brief conversation about selfie sticks before a crowd began to swarm around us and he excused himself to sign autographs and take pictures.
And, finally, at 2014 p4k fest, Annie Clark and I made eye contact.
>>61880478 I "met" Aphex Twin when I was on holiday in Cork. We were in a pub in the middle of a day and I saw him having a drink alone in a booth. I am absolutely 100% positive it was him. I pointed him out but nobody else in my group knew who he was. I eventually went over and said hi and that I was a fan of his work, and he stared at me blankly until I walked away, which made me even more positive it was him.
Most recently was last summer though. I met Christopher Owens when he played in Houston. I was amazed by how small he is. He couldn't have been over 5'6" honestly. I'm only 5'10" and in the picture we took together I'm towering over him.
He was super nice though and good live. He seems like a real sweet guy.
>>61871734 I met Zach Hill once. Zach is at least 7 feet tall. My mom is a real estate agent and she said she was doing an open house of an apartment place in Sacramento. At the time I was looking for cheap place to live and she offered for me to come along to see if I liked it. It was a fairly shitty place but I stuck around because my current wealth didn't offer high standards. At the time Death Grips didn't exist (this was 2008) and none other than Zach Hill was among the small crowd interested in the vacant flat. He was wearing a black t shirt that had "YANK CRIME" crudely written on in white paint. He smelled a bit and had long greasy hair but he wasn't all that out of place for the Sacto area. While my Mom was professionally showing the features of the open kitchen Zach kept wandering around the room tapping on things with his open palm. And would occasionally stop and take out his phone and record him tapping on the object. I'm kind of a talkative person so I approached him and asked what he was up to and he looked down and just smirked. Then he asked if I was into the math scene. I thought he meant actually mathematics so I reluctantly told him I wasn't into math and that I was an artist. He laughed so hard than my Mom stuttered and looked over to us but then continued her presentation. He then kneeled down which made his head about the same height as mine and just whispered to me "19/6 time signatures". I had no idea what he was talking about but then he just yelled "SELF CHECKOUT IS A GOOD SONG TITLE" Then ran to the exit to the room but smashed his head on the top of the doorway. He let out a weird fake sounding growl then fell to his knees. He stood up after about 10 seconds and just to the room "Please tell me somebody sampled that hella fuckin' noise!". He didn't wait for a reply then ran away. it was only until 2011 that I recognized him to be Zach Hill. Who I at the time had never heard of.
Ran into Wayne Coyne about five years ago. This was the night of a show in Tulsa when a five minute storm ruined the stage. Show was called off. That One Guy, Mutemath and Primus were on the bill before the Lips but the storm blew in while Mute was setting up.
>used to run with a pretty tough crowd >stupid kids desperate for money >usually mugged rich looking white people in suits >One time we jumped this skinny guy and his friend >dragged him to the bushes so he wouldn't see our faces >he just said "Uh-oh!" while we were dragging him >later found out he was the singer in some '80s band
I saw Weird Al in 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! Thank you very much!”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and playing his accordion and making me laugh really hard. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him blow a whistle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw Weird Al trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Make A Wish kids while everyone else cheered and sang "Amish Paradise" while holding candles.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you are a beacon of light on an otherwise stormy day. Please play us a song!” At first he was pretending to be tired and not hear her, but after he helped an elderly couple put their groceries into the back of their mid-sized sedan, he came back around and played "Another One Rides the Bus" 15 times in a row because people wouldn't stop requesting it.
I bumped into Michael Gira on staircase, I said sorry, he replied with You better be. As he was walking away he mumbled something like God damn hipsters. This was in 2014 and Im crying ever since then when Im listening to swans
If you live in Arlington, Virginia you will see Ian MacKaye pretty regularly if you go to the right places, especially record stores. It's also basically a rite of passage for stupid teenagers to crank call him when they are having babby's first experience with alcohol.
Bumped into Henry Rollins last year too. Instense guys, but very polite
>>61880360 He lives in the same town as me, or near enough. Had a party at the pub that my brother works who got to meet him.
Made a request that no Led Zep was played while he was there so my brother put his music on and forgot that most of it was Led Zep. Good times.
Also, I've met the guys from Modern Baseball, Jake and Bren anyway. The first time I saw them I was at the merch stand and didn't know them too well, but clicked after a while that they were the two guys manning it and bought a hat. They were really chill guys and I just spoke to them about what they thought about England and whatnot. Though I've said hey to Bren at another of their shows as he was walking by and he seemed really uncomfortable so I let him be.
Also hugged Dylan from Tiny Moving Parts at the same show and spoke a little to the drummer.
Met Thijs van Leer from Focus after a show in a greet and meet. He was cold as ice, unlike the rest of the band that was trying to be nice, and was probably thinking I knew nothing about music to really understand his job. He probably also thought I only pirate his stuff and he'd be right.
>>61871780 it's not hard to meet Gira, just hang around after a concert and he usually turns up to sign a load of stuff. He's just fine, really friendly and gets that there is no point being a cunt to fans. I imagine the "scariness" of Gira would only be seen by those close to him.
I met Thom Yorke once. I was in California and I happened to run into him at a local diner. He was sitting alone and it looked like he'd only just started eating, so I decided to just go up and say hi (if his friends were there I would have just let him be). Anyway, I walk up and say hello and tell him I know him from Radiohead. Nothing. No reaction. Doesn't say a word. He just sits there, staring right through me. Staring intensely, but with no emotion whatsoever.
I begin to feel awkward, so I say "sorry to disturb you" and start to walk away but before I even get a chance to turn he just gets up suddenly and starts walking toward me, still making full eye contact. At first I thought he was going to try and barge into me or something, but at the last minute (like an inch away from me) he turns and heads toward the trash can. Then he starts dumping everything on his plate into it. One by one. Potatoes, carrots, everything. He picks up each bit of food up, holds it high above the can and drops it. Some of it didn't even make it into the trash because he wasn't looking at what he was doing.
Finally his plate is empty and this is the part that really fucking weirded me out. He looks around to check no one (but me) is looking, then slides the plate under his jacket and walks out.
I met Anthony Fantano at a festival once. I tried to tell him that I was a fan but he kept interrupting me by asking if I had taken the red pill yet. He called me a beta and walked away. He seemed really rude.
>>61875296 i feel like meeting people you admire from afar can be a dangerous game. if you don't click in the way you imagine you would, you're likely to feel snubbed by the holier than thou successful artist (or whoever) and want to hate them.
i saw crispin glover live (his movies and stage performance) back in july 2015 and decided not to bother meeting him personally after each show, although i did ask a question from the audience during the q&a. it allowed me to remain interested in his work without risking that feeling of being misunderstood or, worse, disliked by him on a personal level.
>>61877107 the guy named sin in that band (maybe the others too) is a crook. he half owns a studio and him and the other guy mislead hopeful bands, tricking them into paying more and more money by dangling offers and promises in front of them. my friend's band recorded there and the guy showed up saying he'd get them on an avenged sevenfold tour, etc. they were thrilled. turns out it was all bullshit, just a scam to get them paying more.
>>61871734 I work in a guitar shop >Paul Simon >Chris Difford (Squeeze) >Paul Weller >Bob Mould >J Mascis >Mike Campbell >Ron Blair >Joe Bonamassa >Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes >Atari Teenage Riot >Annie Clark >Walter Becker and his cunty tech >Brad Whitford >Matt Cameron >Kim Thayil There have been others over the years but those are the ones I can recall off the top of my head.
>>61889377 I think he just grabbed a drink. He just played a outdoor show near the McDonalds and we had stopped there for food and he walks in and we where like holy shit thats Joe Walsh and I said hi and shook his hand
