Default My dog is dying and getting married next week when the Foo Fighters are in town!!1!

I want to address the TONS of e-mails, posts and PM's that Tim and I seem to be receiving this tour from people that have to meet the band because of the following:
  • Wedding
  • Engagement
  • Sick relative, friend or really great person
  • Dying relative, friend or really great person
  • My kid LOVES them and wants to meet them
  • I am part of ABC organization and could they come and do this one thing?
  • I am visiting from XYZ country and it would make my trip the best ever!

Tim and I have our entire day WRECKED when we get the sick/dying ones. We totally feel for your situation and if we had the power we would totally hook the whole world up. However, this is the reality...the band is very busy and they are scheduled usually up to the minute with radio station gigs and other things related to the tour.

If you really think that your request is extra special better then everyone elses you can e-mail their management company Silva Artist Management to plead your case but there is nothing that anyone here on the message board can do for you.

Thanks!



SILVA ARTIST MANAGEMENT

Quick footnote: There are members of the crew and what not that are somewhat available online in some form or another. Trying to ask them, especially when you don't really know them pretty well? Probably not a good idea.

Long story short: You do NOT want to piss Gus off. He will rip your arms off and beat you to death with 'em (though he's really a sweet guy)

Also, we will arrange meetings for any dead relatives you have but there are a few rules

1) Nate only
2) It's his gig, he doesn't want to meet you. Just the dead person. This is non-negotiable
3) You have to be flexible on scheduling.

If you really want to set up a meeting between Nate Mendel (as seen on TV!) and your dead friend of family member, uhmmm....private message Jill about it

Fuck you, Tim. I don't like dead people.

Oh and this goes for song requests and dedications or whatever......

I know that may seem like a smaller or lesser thing somehow, and I guess technically it is, but the principle still applies.

If you want something from the band, you ain't gonna get it from Jill or myself

You know if anyone is going to request anything it would be our dream (I think I speak for Tim on this...) to hear, "Halo".

So step off.

Seriously people. Stop asking. I am going to delete all PM's and emails received in the future. I have had 5 today alone.
