Zig, thats awesome you got to meet Steven Tyler and Rob Halford. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I met Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz from The Monkees on separate occasions. Davy at a meet & greet and Micky was mingling around a casino after a concert.  The Davy one I was afraid to speak, I was 9. Running into Micky was more just hello & took a picture for my friend who was posing with him. 

Yeah sky, both meetings were totally random. Aerosmith was blowing through the airport in Albany NY on the same day my buddy was leaving to join the Navy. That's the only reason I was there. This was sometime in the mid 1980's during the period when Joe Perry had left the band. Honestly, I would have much preferred his autograph.

With Halford, it was my last day of work at the dealership (thank Christ). When this tall guy in tatty clothes and tattoos all over his body stepped out of his truck, none of the other salespeople wanted anything to do with him. I thought, "what do I have to lose?". Once I realized it was him, I was wondering how I was going to acknowledge him. After the 3 of us piled into a car for the test drive, in one of the least clever moments of my entire life, I uttered, "so, what kind of music do you like?". My face gets flushed with embarrassment just typing this. **sigh** Well, my wife is a huge fan (we saw JP three times in concert), so I had him sign an autograph for her. She was quite grateful. Repeatedly.

Your story involving the Monkees reminded me that my wife and I, along with another couple, hung out with 2 members of Santana after a show in Mesa AZ. Forgive me, but to this day I cannot recall their names. I think one of them was the drummer and the other played various percussion instruments. Anyway, we were in a bar (go figure) in the hotel next to the amphitheater waiting for Carlos. The friends we were with had seen him there a few years prior and had a drink with him in that same bar. I got very excited when our friends pointed out the band members because I love Carlos' music. We thought it would only be a matter of time for him to come downstairs and mingle. So, we bought drinks for the 2 percussionists and they came over to our table and chatted for a while. But alas, no Carlos.

Anyhoo, have I mentioned yet how jealous I am that ITSWD was within sweating distance of Macca!!!!!!paul-mccartney

Better luck next time to you if you get to met Carlos or Joe Perry. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I saw Judas Priest one time, so far. They rock pretty good considering their age; however, unfortunately Rob has to use a cane now due to his back. Too much head banging and heavy leather. ahdn_paul_01Did he answer question about the music? 

He didn't have to. He just chuckled and then I told him I had to be sure it was him. Seeing as how it was his bodyguard who was looking to buy a car, I made the professional decision to maintain my focus on him.

Depending on what decade that was, if it was prior to the late 70s, it would have been Mike Shrieve (drummer), Michael Carabello (congas), and/or Jose "Chepito" Areas (timbales).

At a Santana concert once, I was sitting with a friend near the front row before the show started.  The lights were on, the stage was empty, people were milling around, many getting comfortable in their seats.  Suddenly, my friend and I saw Chepito and the bass player, Dave Brown, standing by the wall in the aisle by the seats, just a few feet away from us.  My friend shouted out -- "CHEPITO!!!"  And Chepito just put his finger up to his mouth giving us the international sign of "Shhhhh!".  For us Santana fans, that was a priceless moment.  That night also happened to be Chepito's birthday, and the band gave an extended performance in honor of that, lasting until about 2:00 in the morning, giving Chepito long jams to do timbale solos over.

Very cool story, FP. I would have loved to have seen that! The Santana concert I was referring to was in the early 90's. Even if you told me their names, I'm afraid I would not be able to confirm. I am into Santana but not nearly as much as you appear to be. Other than Carlos and Gregg Rolie, I'm not at all familiar with the names of any other band members.

I haven't done this to myself in quite some time, but....

HEY ZIG,
