Well he's not a musician, but i've met this dude called "the undertaker" that goes to seriously every concert ever in the bay area, CA. like we've seen him in the pits at mayhem, 2 warped tours, and a dethklok show. He's always going in the opposite direction as the rest of the pit, pushing ppl out of his way with his left hand and high fiving his fans with his right.

EDIT: hes a big looking white guy, and he has a blue dyed beard if anyone else has seen him

I met Bill Kelliher of Mastodon in a parking lot outside the Palladium in Worcester, MA after the New England Metal Fest. I shat a brick before composing myself, but he's a real nice guy.

My mom told me and her met Ted Nugent when I was a baby. I guess he was singing autographs and he ended up getting friendly with my mom. She said he was carrying me on his shoulders and shit.

Not a musician, but my band has done work at the same studio Eminem goes to in Michigan. I've met his engineers.

My grandpa's brother was good friends with Johnny Cash when they were young. He told me they used to smoke weed under bridges and stuff.

Steve Vai and Scale the Summit. Soon after I was born I was blessed/baptized by Eric Clapton if that counts. Steve Velez from the Vitamin String Quartet (they were the ones who did the Dream Theater CD, along with over 300 other releases) played in my band for a few shows. He is the best musician as well as the coolest guy I have ever met, besides maybe Vai, but I'm a little biased because Vai is in my family lol.

What, her being a female pop star makes her a slut?

OT:

I meet loads of people in bands that I go see, because loads of them aren't actually that famous and like to actually hang out with their fans... But as for "famous" musicians:

Johnny Marr
All of The Cribs (I class this as seperate from Johnny Marr)
Bumped into Chad Gilbert from New Found Glory in the afternoon before a gig in the street.
Very very very briefly spoke to Eva from Rolo Tomassi (did ejactulate 4 times during this encounter though )
Aaaaand I met all of The Mighty Boosh if that counts?
My name is Danny. Call me that.

I love pop music and pop stars, but I will say that she does look kind of like a prostitute.

I've met Ted Nugent, the dudes from this deathcore band Chelsea Grin, and the vocalist of The Red Chord when my buddy's brother-in-law's band played with them in Louisville.

Bastard.

OT: I met Burton C. Bell from Fear Factory. (Well, he shook my hand right after the song because I was in the front row, if you wanna count that as meeting him... lmao) But that's it. : /
