Default Re: Have you ever met the Foo Fighters (or one of them) face to face?

I met them all at the Times Like These video shoot in Victorville, Ca. Got them all to sign one of my pick guards and a copy of the video script. And if anyone says, 'they're just normal guys like you and me', they obvioulsy haven't seen them in concert! If everyone was like them we'd all have bands and kick ass. Dave and the Foo's are one of the reasons I don't have a band anymore. The first time I saw them I figured it was the exact show I would do and I couldn't do it any better...

Yes, I just met Dave:

And now I'm remembering that when I was talking to him at first, I just kept touching his arm- God, I hope he wasn't freaked out by it

Me & my mate met taylor, rami, jessie and the phtographer at the last sydney show this year. we saw chris but he was hiding in the back of the car.

it was weird cos we were the only ones waiting at the loading dock. there were bout 15 ppl waiting but they all gave up n left. as soon as they left we see these vans with taylor waving!! fuckin awesome!!! the security guard was encouraging us to get closer n say hello. lucky us!!

I don't think he's obsessed. He just really appreciates the band and has a great love of their music. Nothing wrong with that......

Do I hear jealousy rearing it's ugly head?

Hey, I know I'm jealous!

[color="Blue"]What a lucky fan you are! I have the dvd of course, but it sure would have been nice to be there live and in person. Then to get to meet them to boot. Bet you were on cloud 9 for awhile after that![http://bbs.foofighters.com/images/sm...rin.gif/COLOR]

I met Taylor once in Halifax, Nova Scotia a bunch of years ago, he had just joined the band so it was like 2001 or something. It was at an HMV and he was a pretty nice cat for sure. I saw the foos again in March of this year in Montreal, it was my girlfriend's first concert and I topped off the night (Awesome Show!) with asking her to marry me, so she's a pretty big fan now as well. So when they were playing last week @ VFest TO, I booked a work trip to Ottawa and took her to concert. On the drive from Ottawa to Toronto (absolutly sick of people asking us when we're going to get married) we decided we were going to say NUTS to our friends and Family and drive to Niagra Falls after the concert and get married. I have a buddy who works for AEG who I'm sure could get a message to Dave and Taylor in this type of instance. Since I we had no friends coming we were going to invite them to come and witness it. Seemed like a great idea, get engaged after one Foos show and get married after another... unfortunatly Niagra Falls isn't like Vegas anymore and you need to have a marriage liscence to get married in Canada, so it fell through and we just broke down and set a date for April 09... I wonder if they would have came...

It wasn't that long ago... was it? One second... nope, Halifax's SummerSault 2000. still a friggin' long time ago. I also stood outside of the Much building once in TO for an intimate and interactive. I think that was around 97... they wouldn't let me in though .

Met Pat on Friday before the show, near the Hard Rock's pool. He was as nice as could be and took time for everybody who wanted pics, even though it had to have been getting near soundcheck time by that point. Love him!

I think I saw you after the Friday show taking a photo with one of the band members. Possibly Chris? Don't recall.

I posted this in other threads, but I want to keep it going because I'm still on a Foo high and so frigging happy.

Sorry if I'm a little self indulgent over this. I am just really grateful. And frankly, I've been in a piss poor place over the last month or so... it feels REALLY GOOD to feel so much joy again.
