Hey all,

I'm looking for some ideas, hope you all can help me.

On Saturday, I'm going to be meeting one-on-one with a pretty well-known musician (within the genre, at least). I'd like to bring him a unique gift of some sort as a thank-you for meeting me and to show my appreciation for their music. Anyone have any really cool ideas?

I was at a different show in September and the artist thanked a fan on-stage at the end of the set for bringing the band a really cool cake beforehand (never found out what was cool about it). That's what kind of gave me the idea. I have an idea or two, but nothing that will really elicit a "wow that's awesome" kind of response.

I expect all the standard Pit nonsense, of course, but if anyone has a genuine suggestion, or has done something like this before, it would be much appreciated.

Who's the lucky lady?

Seriously, an idea of who it is would help.

A golden dildo.


You know, it's funny, when I predicted what the first response was going to be, I thought "dildo". I can't prove it now, so you'll just have to believe me. Great minds, eh?

Yeah, you're right. I was hesitant to name names because I didn't want it to turn into an artist or music opinion/discussion thread, but it would probably help.

It's Bjorn Strid from Soilwork.

Drugs and alcohol.


This isn't the 90's.

Seriously, though, a nice alcohol would be a neat gift, but it's nothing special. You'd bring a bottle of booze to your wife's friend's dinner party even though you hate the bitch. Besides, I know next to nothing about booze. And no drugs.

Yeah, but I bet you didn't think it'd be a golden dildo.

A folded dildo molded from your junk. They sell kits for that.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

Unfortunately I know nothing about him so I cannot be of any help. Does he have a biography on a band website or something? What kind of stuff does he like?

Hmmm, I'll write this down. Probably won't get booze though.

No worries. No bio on their website. I know he likes hockey.

What a subtle ego thread. The amount of mental effort it took to deduce your motive caused me a splitting migraine.

Maybe a hat or a T-shirt or something with his team's logo on it? Even better if you can get it with his favorite player's name and/or number on it if you can figure that out too.

I have nothing to add except say that a girl gave the lead singer/guitarist of my favourite band a bottle of johnny walker after a show and he seemed pleased with it, it's nice because it's a good present without being a creepy I KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU, THIS IS COMPLETELY TAILORED TO YOU BASED ON MY RUMMAGING THROUGH YOUR GARBAGE EVERY WEEK FOR A YEAR style gift.

Nice one. Why are you meeting him?

No idea what you can get him though.

The whole band is really great about meeting fans. He's doing vocal coaching, Dirk is doing drum lessons with someone, and the whole band is doing a meet and greet at each show.

I'd like to get something for the whole band if I could, such as aforementioned cake, but I'm pretty creatively bankrupt. I'm leaning away from food because if I were them, I'm not sure I'd accept food from a random dude.

Haha! Yeah, my thoughts exactly.

Yeah, I can only imagine that they'd be a bit leery of that. Which sucks because I know that if I was a famous band person I'd be stoked as **** if at a meet and greet someone was like "Dude here I baked you and the guys a cake."

That'd be awesome.

As for the actual gift ideas, I don't know what to really suggest. The bottle of whiskey or bourbon is always a good idea, but then you run into the people that don't like it.

Getting him his team's hockey jersey would be pretty cool.

You can give him a gushing review from me as the latest album is ****ing fantastic.

Get him the Finnish national hockey teams official scarf. Then get a textmarker and write 6-1, 2011 at it. This might get you in trouble if you ever plan on meeting him again though.

Giving a gift to your favorite musician? That's really lame.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

give him naked pics of yourself. it is home made and from the heart, so therefore, it is special.
