Official forum economist. Explodes when thrown.
The most bizzare encounter i've had with a music celebrity is actually with Chris Pennie. It was actually the very first time i saw Coheed with Chris Pennie as their drummer.Me and a couple of my buddies were sitting outside the venue waiting in line.It was about noon,and we had gotten there really early to get a good spot and all that. Coheed has a history of coming out and talking to the people who are waiting in line really early.So he comes walking out and the first thing out of his mouth is "Does anybody know where the closest Taco Bell is?".Long story short,one of my buddies stays behind to hold our spot in line,and two of us drive Chris pennie to a Taco Bell.He is really appreciative and we get to go in early ( these were the pre-black card days,mind you),and basically hang out in the venue hours before the show starts.I met everyone from Coheed that day,and all of them were very cool.The last time i met coheed,i brought that up,and all of them started laughing really hard,they apparently had been talking about it on the bus ride into town.
So yeah,that was unique.
Also, i met Mike Dirnt in a burger king and he signed my sandwich Wrapper,which i still have to this day. It reads "Enjoy your crispy chicken deliciousness, from Mike Dirnt". so yeah that was pretty weird,too.
How is it me meeting bands i like is somehow always tied to fast food?
"My name is Giovanni Giorgio but everybody calls me...Giorgio.
Tyson Ritter (Singer of All-American Rejects) - Gladly accepted a bracelet from a screaming fan after a performance of Dirty Little Secret, signed a ton of auotgraoghs after the show, and just seems like an awesome guy in general.
Toni Kakko (Singer of Sonata Arctica) - This.
Paul McCartney - This, and This.
All of Pursuing Paradise (Mostly unknown Christian Band) - Saw them last saturday, I helped Justin (The drummer) set up for a concert the taking place in the church's gym the next day, then he made a bet that he if he failed to make a basketball shot from across the gym, I could play a drum solo, got autographs from all 5 members of the band, and then discovered they drove to Ohio all the way from Virginia just to play these concerts.
Can't think of any jerks.
I have a PS3 now. Send me a friend request maybe?

Lynyrd Skynyrd are very nice people. Also I high fived Rivers Cuomo recently and he was awesome for the very short time I was around him. Also, Alice Cooper is such a down to Earth awesome guy, you wouldn't believe it.
