Apologies if this has been done, but I couldn't find it in a search.

I just got a text from my flatmate saying she got handed a plectrum from the new dude in Alice in Chains (I forget his name). She's probably sucking him off now. Good for her!

Anyway, it got me thinking: What have you ever caught or been given at a gig from a member of the band?

All I got was a plectrum from Scott Ian of Anthrax. I used it 'til it burned out. Awesome.

Caught a pick from a bassist that was touring with Joe Satriani last year.

I've got a bit of a pick collection going. So far I've got one from both guitarists from BTBAM, both from After the Burial, and one each from Unearth, Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, and Protest the Hero.

Although for most of those I've asked the guitarists themselves for instead of actually catching them after the set.
My band, Escher

so what you're saying is that, after getting out of the water naked with 5+ guys, you thought that once the girls were around you had better get some clothes on?

I remember going to see Alexisonfire and Jordan throwing out a drumstick near the end of the set, only to see 3 blokes still hanging on it to it, fighting for it, at the end of the set 3 songs later. Fuck that, i'd rather just be enjoying the set. I've never caught anything because most of the time I see it happen most people have to fight to get it and, well, fuck that. But getting a pick would be pretty cool, if you could catch it

Well, at the Billy Talent gig I went to, Jon Gallant (Bassist) was throwing water bottles at the end of the gig and the first one he threw hit me in the face cap first.

He laughed at me, then continued throwing water bottles
