Hi, everyone! I thought this would be an interesting topic. Post what famous musicians you've met, and where. Also, If it is possible to show a picture... It would be enjoyable to see! Hope you enjoy!

Who I've met...

Nuno Bettencourt - I met Nuno at the "Guitar hero 07" competition in San Francisco, California. I met him before I really knew who he was, but I'm glad I did! Nuno's one of the coolest cat's I've ever met biggrin.gif !
Brendon Small - He's the creator of the TV show "Metalocalypse" and the starter of the ever-so-popular Death Metal band "DethKlok". I met him the same place I met Nuno. He's a funny guy. laugh.gif
Robert Trujillo - I met Rob in a random restaurant in San Rafael, California. I actually met Sean Penn (actor) in the same restaurant, but that's a different topic wink.gif. I saw him and I thought "I swear I've seen that guy before!" We talked guitar a little... I have a picture that I will try to load. But, I'm not sure how to load pics ohmy.gif .
Greg Howe - I briefly talked to Greg at "Guitar Hero 07". After the show, and when he was done playing on stage with Nuno biggrin.gif .

Who I cannot qualify to be on my list...

Jason Becker - My dad has met him several times in San Ramon, California! I was supposed to meet him, but he was not there when I went sad.gif . I did meet the lady who takes care of him though smile.gif !
Joe Satriani - He was at "Guitar Hero 07" as well. There was a really cool lady at the front desk who took me backstage to meet him. But, he was the first to leave of the judges... Man, I was bummed sad.gif .

I just recently met Brendon Small, Mike Keneally, and my favorite metal drummer Gene Hoglan, at a Dethklok concert. Before that I met Fredrick Andersson of Amon Amarth. I have pictures but they were uploaded in another topic. Also I met one of the guys from Chimaira but I didn't know who it was, since I'm not a big fan, haha.

I never met a famous person, but I was quite near to some. E.g. 2007: Steve Vai (2 m), 2006: Carlos Santana (30 m) and a polish band called "Czerwone Gitary" (red guitars) (2 m) when I was a little boy (1993/1994).

And there is one person that I´m going to meet for sure: PAUL GILBERT!!! biggrin.gif In November I´ll go to a concert with my VIP ticket that I reserved yesterday.
