Post Metal/Rockstars - who's met someone famous?
Who in metal/rock are the good guys and who are the, er, not so good guys?
Ever met Lemmy and he talked about flower arranging?
Ever had a pint with Phil Anselmo and he touched your knee in a disturbing way?
I've only met Rory Gallagher (gent), Janick Gers (gent) and Dee Snider (twice-gent).
Just curious about these things, I don't know why? :?

My Mum's ex-boyfriend played Fergal Sharkey at pool, and beat him.

Most recently I briefly met Steve MacKay (Stooges). He didn't put a hand on my knee.

I don't know what 'hovel' means nor really care.
I just think that some stars get put on a pedestal and are apparently fannies.
A well known ares-piece is, alledgedly, Ray Davies of the Kinks.
Sad though it seems, I really would like to sit and sink a few with auld Lemmy.

I'd love to drink with one of Anselmo or Dickinson... They don't pretend to be nothing, just themselves and would talk what they think/feel and wouldn't give 2 shits if one disagreed, they say their piece and if you don't like it then tough shit. Legit people.

Dickinson is a legend. Exactly how you'd expect him to be. Mentioned this not so long ago in a different thread, but I was genuinely starstruck when I met him. He was/is/always will be something of a hero of mine and just got a full on case of the "oh fuck, Bruce Dickinson is talking to me!"

My mate at work was standing at Glasgow Central station meeting pals before going to see Maiden at the Apollo, when up walked Bruce himself and asked them for directions to the venue! They asked him where the rest of the band were and he said the flew up, that he got the train coz he hates flying!!
Strange story when you think, what with him being a pilot now.

I bumped into Vadim from Dragonforce once.
I walked past Opeth in Manchester, but didn't realise it was them.
I ignored Rich Walker from Solstice as I didn't realise who he was, felt a right wally afterwards when he was on stage and I realised who he was, and that I'd basically ignored him whilst I was wearing a Solstice Shirt.
I inadvertently got Mario from Atlantean Kodex into Drudkh.
Bumped into Martin Walkyier at Gathering of the Clans in 2010, but I'm pretty sure everyone did. He seemed a little drunk.

Other than that it's pretty much uk bands that aren't big enough to be someone famous like Wodesnthrone, Winterfylleth and the like, so I don't really count it.

Know what you mean-I've lterally spent all day drinking with a lot of UK punk band like Sick on the Bus, Test Tube Babies, Mickey Fitz from The Business-the all day punk festivals are great for that.
But, as you say, I don't really count them as stars. Fat boozy cunts, yes. But not really stars.
I think too much about these things-they do say 'never meet your heros'. But I'd like to.

Don't meet your heroes, kids.

Are they fannies then, Morff?
Wish you'd never bothered?

A few, can't remember them all. Shane Embury was quite nice, as were Opeth and the guitarist from Trivium. I didn't care for Kevin Talley and couldn't pluck up the courage to talk to either Dylan Carlson (who I walked past every day for three days) or Mogwai, who were checking out of a hotel at the same time I was.

I think Stuart or Barry would be the most approachable. Martin and John look like they'd rather be somewhere else most of the time and Dominic looks pretty scary.

William Sarginson and that bald one from Entwined, both screaming divas and horrible cunts.

I met Logan Mader who turned out to be an arsehole.
