Kerry didn't just meet them face to face, tongue to face would be a better description.

I want to meet them so bad!
I got as close as probably I ever will when they played at Brighton..
After the show, I was outside and there was a little barrier to close off the door and coach, and Dave went along it doing photos and autographs, but was in a mega rush to get to V, and missed me out.. I cried a lot. Lol.
But, the reason they were rushing was because they played too long, and I would definitely rather see them play longer at such an amazing venue than have Dave x written on my Tshirt.
I think.
xxx
I'm thinking theres little chance at Wembley.. Dern.

nope..... not yet!
this is sad, but im from Houston and went to their show this tour in Houston. Now, im flying to Pittsburg for their concert July 26. (i just cant get enough of them!!! )
im going to try to either sneak back stage , or make a poster saying "I FLEW FROM HOUSTON, CAN I PLEASE GET A SET LIST & MEET DAVE??".
[then in my mind Dave will come over and be like, "hey, come hang backstage with us" and then before and after the show we'll hang and stuuf with the whole band.] let me dream....

Don't be jealous. You just have to have stalker tendencies. LOL.. which I have. I had seen them a bunch of times, this is just the first time I had enough nerve to ask for them to smile pretty for a picture

wow, that's so cool that a lot of you got to meet them...*turns green*...
really though, great stories
i'm kind of shy around people when first meeting them as it is, so if i ever got to meet any of the foos...i'll just leave it at i'd probably lose all of the little social skills i have, haha
still, i'm gonna be optimistic and say maybe i'll get as lucky as some of you are someday

Oh, back in 2005, some friends and I went to see FF/Weezer in Minneapolis. Ahh, probably still the best concert I've ever seen! After the show, we were walking around the venue, trying to decide where the best place to sit and wait for the band would be, so we could hopefully get pictures or whatnot.

We passed some people on the street that directed us to a tiny bar kiddie-corner to the venue. Some guy with his back to us was playing guitar in the window, and it was Mr. Dave Grohl himself! A couple members of the Kaiser Chiefs were hanging out in the bar too, and they played a few songs, while Dave mingled with the crowd, filtering in and out of the bar.

I was only 20 at the time, so I wasn't allowed to enter the bar. Another girl and I sat outside at a table and tried to get the best view we could of what was happening inside from outside. Actually, at one point, Dave turned around and directly stared at us for several long moments. It seemed like our eyes locked; I didn't know what to do, so I just beamed a smile back at him. :P

After a while, the bouncers were kind enough to even let us minors into the bar, so we could get pictures or autographs from Dave. I was only interested in getting a picture, so I patiently waited my turn, just ecstatically happy to be in the same room. When it was our turn, I let two of my friends go first, and I was behind the camera; Dave automatically smiled, and when I counted to three to snap a pic, he bugged out his eyes a bit and moved them askew. Very silly.

When it was my turn, my other friend stood on his right, and I was on his left. Dave put his hand firmly around my waist and pulled me snugly right up to him! It was blissful to say the least. Of course, my friend didn't think to turn the camera vertically, so you can't see this physical interaction, but that's all right. I'll remember it!

Great stories, thank you all so much for sharing!
Wish I had been this lucky

Not that I had any doubt, but glad you still all confirmed that they are really nie guys!

Maybe some day... of course even if I would be so lucky, I wouldn´t be able to do anything but stare at them.

Met Pat at the Hyde Park gig. We were standing by the sound desk just before Motorhead came on when Pat appeared. No one had noticed he was there so I was reluctant at first to go over, but when I did we chatted for about 15 minutes, he signed my ticket and let me take a piccie. He was lovely and very down to earth.

Met Wiley at the accoustic gig and very nearly met the guys when they played the Astoria in 2005, but they were in a bit of a hurry, so didn't quite make it!
