Congrats! Did you get your confirmation email yet?

Not yet. But the tickets weren´t sold out when I reserved mine I think. I don´t think that Paul Gilbert is very popular in Luxembourg. It´s a very small country. tongue.gif

I met Nicko McBrain from Iron Maiden when he was visiting my home town Uddevalla in Sweden back in 2001. But I nearly missed him. Because when I entered the music store he was visiting he was about to leave. But I managed to meet him in the last minute and got to shake his hand. smile.gif

All you people are too lucky. I had a dream about meeting slash once, though. tongue.gif rolleyes.gif

I spelled my username wrong...I didn't even think that was possible!

Look at the topic for my guitar...
Finished Guitar Build

Gear:
Homemade strat (You still need to look at its topic!)
Squier strat (probably going to get rid of it and get another guitar instead) :)
Line 6 spider amp (not actually used for anything, just acts as a speaker)
Digitech Gnx2 (kind of old, but cheap, and sounds amazing!)

Neil Young

Not really musicans persay but I also met Jay Z, Eminem, D12, 50 Cent and Llyod Banks. I also have actually held "Blackie", yes "Blackie" Eric Clapton's famous guitar, but I was too afraid to play it ohmy.gif It was going across the pond to some guitar show a few yrs back.

Garsed is cool smile.gif - as of course if Marcus smile.gif . Could be embarrassing though Ian if Marcus doesn't remember you biggrin.gif . I'm sure he does though cool.gif .

Just a few in a sort of chronological order:

Cilla Black (very embarrassing but she is famous in a bad way in the UK) - met her when I was 6 and was on TV as a background toddler (if you see what I mean).

All of Teardrop Explodes/Echo and the Bunnymen/Orchestral Manouvorers in the Dark/Dalek I love You/Wah Heat/ Hambi and the Dance - played football with them (UK early 1980s new wave).

Joy Division/New Order and A Certain Ratio and what became KLF - drank with most of them. I still talk football with one.

I've used Peter Gabriel's studio to record in (amongst others) - met Bush but not Gabriel. BBC Maida Vale, Abbey Road, Blue Sky, Ocean, Freedom etc recording and mixing studios - and met most of the staff (and used a host of other studios). Met all of Nirvana, Pixies, Henry Rollens, Fugazi, Sonic Youth, Black Flag, Jam, Clash and quite a few others. Banned - and threw out of a pub - Bobby Gilliespie from Primal Scream. Been thrown out of a pub with Tad and some of Nirvana and Sonic Youth. Had some brief lessons on composition with Vernon Handley and Sir Simon Rattle (not at the same time though). Played with Evan Parker and Ornette Coleman and others in an impromptu free jazz and John Scofield more standard jazz. Various other things...

Met individually lots - Carlos Santana, Pat Metheny, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Carla Bley, Ronnie Scott, Nick Lowe, Nick Cave, Evan Parker, Ornette Coleman, most of Genesis, most of U2, most of Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Scorpions, Montrose, Thin Lizzie, Uriah Heap, various line ups for Hawkwind, lots of 70s/80s punk/new wave and lots of session musicians...

Minor (?) mention - my partner has won numerous Sony Broadcast awards - so I also know her ( wub.gif ) and of course the people involved (sometimes including me). We occasionally go to the award ceremony - but not very often as it's a bit ohmy.gif ... Similarly I know a host of people from award winning European Broadcast and Media organisations and a few from the US and the Far East.

Cheers,
Tony

It is a catchy tune for sure man. I actually like a few of Jay Z's songs, he has some interesting rhymes. BTW I did a tiny edit on your post just to keep things consistent with the posting guidelines.

EDIT: Tony - you must have some very interesting stories man... being thrown out of pubs with celebs being one obviously wink.gif You'd be a great guy to share a pint with I'm sure smile.gif

Sure, no problem on the edit. I was thinking about doing it myself, but decided not to.

I haven't heard many JayZ songs, but he's not the worst one out there. Gonna do a new topic on a rapper I really like in a few moments.

On editing: I'm sure it's possible to have automatic edits on certain words - like the one in the JayZ song, and other... strong words.
