Do any of you talk, either regularly or rarely, with any "famous" musicians on Facebook?

I know that personally, I'm "friends" with Tosin Abasi, all of Cynic, and Sacha Dunable from Intronaut, though the only one I've ever actually spoken to on facebook is Sacha.

As I'm posting this, my band's other guitar player Spencer is talking to Christian Müenzner from Obscura.

Acrasia
For fans of Between The Buried and Me, Dream Theater, Cynic.

My New Progressive Rock/Djent Band:

You mean mainstream musicians?

They don't talk to no one, if you mean famous around this site then no.

I've talked to Misha Mansoor of Periphery, Chris Letchford/Travis LeVrier of Scale the Summit, Phil Labonte, Mike Martin and Oli Herbert of All That Remains (both internet and IRL) Dustie, Paul and Blake of BTBAM, and Julian Rodriguez of Elitist. Also Jeff Loomis, Tosin Abasi and Keith Merrow, though that was just simple question answering rather than a conversation.

I posted something on Cristina Scabbia's (one of the singers for Lacuna Coil) wall a while ago and she replied to it. I also sent John Moyer (the current bassist for Disturbed) a message on myspace once which he replied to. Neither of these were really conversations though

Stuart Zender

He posts photos and comments back and stuff, really cool.

But that does make me a loser, lol.
#7
Friends with All Shall Perish and The Human Abstract on FB. Never had what you would call a conversation with them though. Exchanged comments, yeah
#8
the only people that propperly interact with their fanbase through facebook are people that built their reputation online, so obviously bands like periphery and AAL are a good shout,

within the whole 'DJENT' mess everyone knows everyone and everyone has talked to everyone

I've notice that a lot actually. Everyone involved in the whole djent thing is really active in talking to their fans via internet because almost all of those bands made their fame on Facebook and forums.

I have a few people on Facebook. Scott Reeder from Kyuss, Rob Oswald from Karma to Burn, people like that. Gene Trautmann, Van Connor, Mario Lalli, there's probably a couple more I can't remember right now.
#11
Not musicians, but I have talked to NintendoCapriSun, James Rolfe (The angry video game nerd, although that was back in the 00's), and I almost always have the highest rated comment on any of Chuggaaconroy's status. So I wouldn't be surprised if he recognized my name.

I am way too pathetic.

Yeah its really great, its like, i went to the Djentlemans gig with periphery, tesseract and monuments and met them all. The next day i was chatting to all of them on facebook / skype showing them my music.

I talked with Steven Wilson once, and John Wesley is pretty approachable too.

But yeah, as a general I don't wanna feel like a crap talking to someone that I don't really even know
