    I'm a huge concert-goer. Last year I saw DRI (old 80's thrash band) and met all of them. Spike Cassidy (guitarist) had just had his second bout with cancer and had just started touring again. Didn't get any pics that time..about 2 weeks ago I saw NE Metalfest in Worcester MA. After DRI played I was watching Suicidal Tendencies (the headliner) and someone strolled up next to me and started rocking out with me. This guy..Kurt Brecht, singer of DRI :)

    [​IMG]

    I met Godsmack quite a few times in the mid-late 90's when they were just a Boston band even before local radio started playing them..drank with them quite a few times.

    Met "Psycho" Sid Vicious from the WWF back in the 90's at a gas station. I met almost all of the ECW roster back in the 90's from seeing them live a lot.

    I can't post the pic here, but met Aurora Snow a couple of times..

    Met Ron Jeremy - that dude is SOLID. Met Bobby Rahal back in the day when he was still racing. Also drank with the Bloodhound Gang after a small venue concert a few years ago. Those guys are actually pretty tame in real life.

    Met Trace Adkins in iraq, my aunts best friend got married to Chad Grey lead singer of Mudvayne and HellYeah. Got contact high at one concert in Sac that Mudvayne did with Korn and 10years, went back stage with them and ate a lettuce sandwhich then blamed the guitarist for taking the last slices of bread when the drummer asked whot took the last bread. Went out in to the hall as Korn was taking stage and bumped chests with them as they were going out, cant really remember which band members it happened with but it was a great night. I met the all the band members of HellYeah in Atlanta during a concert they tagged along with Buckcherry, i dont have any pics of it but i do have the VIP pass to prove it. Vinny was funny as he just stuck around for no more than 45 seconds before saying he was going to the bus to drink and smash.

    Carl Weathers came to a yard sale we had, bought some cowboy boots that were my son's. He seemed bummed my wife didn't recognize him, he even said something to her, "You don't recognize me?"

    She flexed her biceps and said, "What the hell, you don't recognize me?"

    lol

    Met Grant from Mythbusters at the Maker Faire.

    Used to do martial arts with Ronnie Lott.
