What musicians have you met? I've only ever met a couple of musicians from Australian bands. I think meeting the guitarist from Gospel Of The Horns was the best. Share your band member meetings with us!

Met quite a few at gigs. Most nice normal guys, not the big bad scary dudes kids want them to be. Also lived with a former member of one death metals biggest bands. Cool guy.

Hmmn i wouldn't say i've had many opportunities so far but I know all the guys from Bilocate & Nervecell quite well, & count Nervecell's guitarist, Barney, as one of my closest friends.

I've had a good chat with most of the members SikTh & American Head Charge after gigs as both bands liked to come out & mingle with the crowd after their sets.

I also got to hang out with Kevin Foley of Benighted quite a bit when he came out to Dubai to play drums for Nervecell when their regular session drummer couldn't make it.

Oh & here's a pic of me with Karl Sanders & his wife

I got the chance to hang out with him at Nevercell's VIP album launch party, he's such a great guy.

Lucky you!

I assume his wife is wearing a "Amongst The Catacombs Of Nephren Ka" t-shirt, isn't she?

Met the punk band "the Business" when I was very young and went back stage with them and stuff. Then they brought us on-stage when they played their set. That's an amazingly cool experience when you're like 13 years old. They're a very big, old school UK punk band too.

Also met Oderus from GWAR when he was out of costume. Me and a few friends recognized him walking around eating a cheeseburger at a big metal festival in '06 and we hung out for a little bit. One of my buddies got to smoke a blunt with him though, that must have been awesome.

Hung out with Zak Stevens after a Circle II Cirlce gig.

Had a chat with the guys from Cynic after a show.

Missed the opportunity to hang out with Tom Englund one time because it was 2:00 am and I was 16 years old at the time. I still got his autograph.

Metal Bands I've Met in Person:

Wintersun - They signed my copy of Time I and I shook Teemu's hand. I didn't get a picture with them though, I wussed out since I thought I'd look ugly in their presence and there were tons of people that were waiting so I didn't want to hold the line too much, but mostly the first one.

Xanthochroid - Local band that play a style of metal reminiscent of Emperor, Opeth, and Wintersun. Real cool dudes about my age to hang out with.

Katatonia - Met them at the same record store Wintersun visited in Hollywood (different dates obviously). I shook hands with everyone, they signed my copies of Viva Emptiness and Dead End Kings, and I got to have my picture taken with them, since I cleaned myself up beforehand. Got to say a few words with Anders Nyström, who is a real chill, laid back dude. They're all really nice blokes.

I met, chatted briefly and shook hands with Megadeth in the 90's: the two Daves, Marty and Nick Menza (circa Rust in Piece) at a signing autographs event in a record store in San Antonio, Tx. Cool guys, kinda quiet (maybe they were tired from the trip). Took an unauthorized picture with Dave Mustaine
Quickly met Laney Staley (Alice In Chains - circa Facelift) in the pit when Slayer ws playing!! on that same day!!
Also Bobby Blotzer (drummer) from Ratt in a Casino; a couple of friends and I hanged out with him for a while when Stephen Pearcy was no longer with the band; we asked him a lot of stuff about their break-up with him. Normal down to earth guy.

Generally get to hang out and have met quite a few musicians as I play in a band as well. So we're generally playing the same festival or are direct support. But I've also met a lot of musicians when I was staying in Europe.

I've hung out with the Mastodon and Red Fang dudes backstage at one of their gigs in Stockholm, also met the Red Fang guys again last year at Metalfest Poland.
Hung out with the dudes from Yob (Aaron and Mike) who are awesome people. Also met Dustin from Norksa and Stevie Floyd from Dark Castle on the same tour
Had Erlend from Kvelertak try to bum smokes off me. I didn't know it was him till we started talking, coz he looked a lot shorter than he did onstage
Hung out with the guys from Textures a couple of times, mainly Stef
Hung out with Destruction and Lars from Entombed
Met the guys from Karnivool and Dead Letter Circus
Met the guys from Slayer
Got Christian from Testament baked before he got onstage
