Since 1998, I have had the extreme pleasure of meeting some of my favorite bands or at least a band member or two. Most of the time it was at a concert but other times it happened at in-store of some sort. All non-concert meetings are below. As for the others, you can find various instances under Concerts or Bands in the menu above.
