Name the musicians you've had the pleasure of meeting

I figured this would be a interesting, light little idea for a thread.

I've had the pleasure of meeting:

The three girls in Eisley. Eisley, like myself, hail from north Texas and are starting to get noticed a little bit here and there. Nothing too special, but the girls have excellent voices and a handful of nice songs.

I also met the National last month at ACL Fest.

And earlier this year, I met my favorite songwriter, Jeff Tweedy. I don't normally get starstruck, but I struggled to find coherent sentences. Meeting him was easily one of the highlights of this year for me.


Now your turn. Go.

Can't think of whether I've met anybody, but Tony Levin, bassist extraodinaire for Peter Gabriel and many other groups, e-mailed me back once after I sent him a note saying how much I appreciated his work. That was nice. Over the years, he's had a great online journal of his activities.

I saw Rage Against The Machine in a small club in Toronto in 92. They had just released their first album and hadn't really become famous yet.

After the show, me and a couple of friends went to eat at a restaurant up the street and ended up eating at the same table with Zack and Tom.

Zack was very quiet and seemed shy almost but Tom was hilarious and very entertaining to talk to...

Mr. The Edge in 2005.

That's it! We didn't say very much to each other (mostly because I got starstruck).

they were very nice (though slightly stoned ) and they will be huge some day soon if there's any justice left in this world

You probably won't want me to post my list of actors and actresses then.

Especially if Jeff Goldblum and/or Willem Dafoe make that list... fuckin' love Dafoe.

You should post it in the Random Discussion thread though, it'll be cool to see.
