Met Dave before a soundcheck back in 2008 and Taylor after a show later that same year. I met Nate after 2 Sunny Day Real Estate shows in 2009 (and William as well, who could not possibly have been nicer (or chattier!). I've never been able to meet Chris, though TBH the above-mentioned times were the only times I've ever hung out, lookin' to meet anybody.

Not really fully meeting them but Taylor totally rode the GA line on a bike in Columbus. He even said 'Hi, guys'.

Does anyone know approximately what time the band has been soundchecking on the wasting light tour? All these stories are inspiring me to try to get a photo! Sounds like the guys are as nice as they seem.

Tip:

Buy a large astro-van, darken the windows and wait outside the venue before, during and after the gig. Purchase large aviators and plenty of beef jerky & red bull.

I haven't been lucky enough to meet the band yet. But I was lucky enough to meet Taylor before a Coattail Riders show in 2010. He was wicked nice and down to earth. I went to give him a handshake and he was like, "F that bro give me a hug!". The two of us had a 5-10 minute conversation about music.

Met Chris and had beers with him, he came to Australia some years ago with his band Jackson United was a killer night.

I was buying some merch when Chris walks up and says hey man come meet the band and have a beer or 6.

Was a classic night, oh and from memory they were supporting Jebediah @ the Waterloo (that no longer exists) Another venue eaten up by population growth.

I seen them behind the auditorium in St Louis but I didn't get to say hello. I would love to have the chance to meet them. They keep putting out awesome music so they will never get small enough to play those 200 300 people venues again haha

I am hoping to see FF live soon. I would love to be upfront (most important), but would also love to meet the guys. How early should I get there, and would it be worth losing my place in line to hang around by the stage door in hopes of meeting them? What would you all do?

...if it were me , I wouldn't ask this but whatev ... I would just be grateful for the fact that you have the opportunity to see them live up close- "would it be worth losing your place in line?"- not if you don't get to met them! IMO, I go to rock out&have a blast- my feeling is if it's meant to happen, it will. I haven't met them, am I jealous of those who have? sure, but in my life, that kinda stuff just doesn't happen- ever...& I've learned to be "ok" with that...I think the best way@ most memorable way to meet them is by chance. that's just me...
